    30 min interview with 2 analysts. Behaviorals, why banking, Nomura, etc. Nothing unusual. A few technicals (conceptual), nothing intense. People were nice, still a small group but trying to grow. Pretty smooth interview overall.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Nomura Holdings.

    Interview

    Pretty chill. Kinda annoying because I got the technicals right but then he kept asking me: "Are you sure?" Then it became not chill pretty quickly. I would say definitely make sure that you know your technicals and are properly prepared. I went in pretty blind since I had an exam the same day.

    Interview

    Applied the position through the college career website. First-round interview was conducted on campus, and interview questions are mainly focused in behavioral questions. Overall the interview was dry and very structured, but the interviewer's reaction to my answers made me uncomfortable.
