Nomura organized an excellent 5-week virtual internship. The first two weeks comprised of training while the last three involved working within our allocated teams and on a personal project. I learned a lot during both phases of the programme and received an accurate insight into Investment Banking. We were given relevant tasks and were smoothly integrated into the team. During the programme we also had several calls with senior bankers as well as several socials with the intern class.
I found that the work provided was very engaging, the internship had been impressively adapted to the virtual enviroment. In terms of the work itself, we were given weekly group projects to work on until the Friday were we would give a presentation about the project to the business representatives. Each week we focussed on a different division within technology so I found that the projects all varied hugely and you could see how they were relevent to the particular division we would be looking at.
The internship was very enjoyable - the opportunity to collaborate with interns on different desks in group projects made the work quite social and interactive. This then prompted us to reach out to other desks for advice or help and so learn about a variety of different products and roles. The first week of the internship was training by an external company, iBank, and this was also very enjoyable and overall useful to the internship experience.
Despite the internship being virtual, Nomura made every effort to ensure the interns had a great experience. The training provided by FinancialEdge was well structured, content-wise very good and given by enthusiastic instructors. Following the two weeks training, we had at the desk work experience for three weeks in a team that we could select prior via a sort of virtual placement fair. In the three weeks at the desk, the recruitment team and our own teams ensured that we had video meetings with all the seniors for about an hour at a time and the juniors hosted virtual drinks every week to chat in a more informal manner. The team supported the interns in every way possible. They were very eager to help with any questions or tasks you might struggle with.
I really enjoyed the experience. The firm managed to produce a well organised internship although it was virtual and of a shorter length. Still, the training was coherent and allowed us to gain significant insight into the sector and to the work that we would be doing. The time on the desk was valuable and really allowed us to learn a lot, and I think interns would have been given more work if the internship was longer as we were given time to prove our abilities.
I really enjoyed my internship. I had the opportunity to interact with a lot of different people, from which I learned a lot. We had a lot of training on various topics which allowed us to gain valuable skills. All the people at Nomura were welcoming and very helpful. We also had a lot of interactions with the other interns through several group project, which also gave us exposure to the various businesses at Nomura.
I thoroughly enjoyed my exprience at Nomura. I was an intern in the Global Markets division, and thought the combination of desk work, group projects, networking and a final individial presentation worked together to provide a really good program! The business were extremely accomodating, and I got exposure to many senior members of the bank (at my own request). I would say everything is there at your disposal. How you actually utilise those things is entirely up to you.
The internship was very well organised, with multiple events to meet other interns even though it was virtual. Moreover, the first two weeks of training were also highly interactive and the group work allowed us to meet people from other teams too. The weekly virtual drinks organised by the grad team also make the experience a bit better and again are a good way to meet your fellow interns in a more informal, casual meeting.
Nomura was a lovely company to work for - everyone I encountered was very supportive. The work I was given was interesting and varied. I was not excessively micromanaged and was gradually given increasing responsibility, which I appreciated. There was also lots of additional opportunities to get involved with for charity and sustainability.
It has been a great experience. I have not only enjoyed work. In house societies play a great role in Nomura's social life. Almost all the time there is something going on like events hosted by Nomura, hackathons, charity events, drinking events on the terrace etc. This goes on across all teams.
One of the best experiences I have had in my life. Will definitely recommend to someone on the fence about doing. Had tremendous amounts of fun with my colleagues and the work was both interesting and challenging. Not forgetting to mention that the office was situated in the heart of the city. Rest of the intern class were a blast and have made friends for life.
