  • 1. Please give an overview of the insight and what was involved on a day-to-day basis.
  • On the first day we had an insight of the Investment banking division with presentations and networking sessions, and a case study. On the second day, it was the same setting for Global Markets. On the third day, we had workshops on how to brand ourselves and to develop soft skills. And finally, on the 4th day, employees of the technology and risk divisions presented their jobs and we had workshops with the recruiters.


  • 2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
  • I developed my communication for sure. As I am not a native, I think that I am more able to express myself properly in english. Moreover, I developed my organisational skills as it was very structured. Finally, I enhanced my networking skills as I met a lot of students and Nomura's employees.
