A two week virtual internship due to covid 19. The first week involved general training on Investment Banking, Global Markets and other skills such as debating and excel. The second week each intern joined a desk in their chosen area and spent the week networking and working on a presentation that they gave to their team at the end of the week.
I have developed my presentation, communication and analytical skills whilst also broadening my knowledge of investment banking.
The programme gave great insight into what day to day life in an investment bank is like, despite not being able to go into the office. We were able to network with people throughout the bank and of different seniorities and so we could get as broad an understanding of the bank as we chose.
Everyone that I spoke to was welcoming and happy to talk to interns and give them insight into the bank. It seems that the bank cares about its people which was great to see.
I really enjoyed it as I was kept busy networking and researching for my presentation. It was also great to meet the other interns through the various socials and events that Nomura organised.
