What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
Be honest. Be yourself. Sell that self. Either you're the sort of person Nomura is looking for or not.
Make sure to get across why you want to work in Investment Banking, why you specifically want to work for Nomura, and what it is about yourself that could bring value to the company.
Do you have any interview tips?
Always ask a question or two towards the end of your interview - even if it's just asking the interviewer about their experiences in the firm. Make it more of a two-way conversation to reduce the workload on yourself and make it seem more friendly.
Every interview I've had here has not been about technical skills, but rather the ability to work in a team, to lead the team where necessary, to think outside the box and to solve problems.
