Investment Banking Summer Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee
Anonymous Employee
Application Details

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Nomura International in November 2013.

Interview Details

Standard interview process. Online + aptitude test, followed by a case study with an Analyst from the local team (I was applying for London and living in Amsterdam) and a video conference with an Analyst in London. After passing these, I was invited for 4 rounds of interviews in London, which were fairly standard and the interviewers were friendly and pleasant.

Expect question on your CV/resume, motivation as well as some (basic) technical questions, but nothing out of the ordinary.

    Interview Details

    After the online application process, there were two interviews at the local office and a financial markets business case. Afterwards, there was the final round in London which consisted in 4 other interviews. As usual, questions were a mix of competency based and technical. Personally, I received no brain teasers.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Nomura International in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    I completed the application online and passed the Kenexa test (numerical and logical). About two weeks later I received the invitation for the first round interview, which consisted in one hour of case study preparation, half an hour of case presentation and half an hour of competency based questions. The case was not that hard, but valuation/accounting knowledge is required to do well; there was an answer form, and the case study discussion consisted in reading your answers to the interviewer. The competency interview was quite easy, no too technical questions and no brainteasers. It was mainly to understand the candidate's motivation.
