Bloomberg Terminal can also be used to provide students with information to prepare for interviews while also providing them with a certificate of completion that adds value to their resumes. Many finance industries recruit interns and candidates for full-time positions from the pool of candidates who complete the BMC. Bloomberg terminal may also be used for conducting internship and job searches as well as for networking and identifying alumni in all industries.
