Role Description

IBD division

    The Role

  • 1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?
  • I greatly enjoyed the IBD summer internship experience at Nomura, despite being virtual this year because of the global pandemic. Firstly, the training we had for 2 weeks with Financial Edge was incredibly thorough and professional, and I also loved that interns were given actual live work to help their teams giving us a genuine taste for what an analyst position would involve on a day to day basis.

  • 2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?
  • Each intern was assigned a buddy which was a great way to become integrated into the team and be given some work. I also found it incredibly easy to reach out to different team members (at all levels in the firm) to have a one on one conversation about their careers.
