The Explore Programme was a 4 day insight into the Nomura's 3 divisions. Due to Covid-19, the programme was all online and consisted of interactive sessions about what the different divisions consist of, carrying out presentations ourselves, networking sessions and also soft-skills training.
We had the opportunity to develop soft skills like public speaking and presenting but also developed some Excel skills.
It was very informative as I wasn't entirely sure what roles there were within the different divisions and also talking with analysts was beneficial to gain more understanding on this too.
Everyone I had the opportunity to interact with were very friendly and helpful in answering any questions I had.
I thoroughly enjoyed the insight, mostly because of how interactive all the sessions were and how friendly everyone was.
Research the Firm, look at the news surrounding Finance and Nomura specifically prior to your application and be authentic in the interviews.
