Interview Questions

2014

"I was asked several competency based questions and then some more technical ones."
Technology, London
"I was asked: why Nomura? and why should we pick you over others applying for this role? I was also asked to provide examples of general competencies such as teamwork, leadership and collaboration. Finally, there were questions surrounding my experience on my CV. All in all it was a very relaxed interview."
London
"I believe interview questions are different from person to person so the best tactic is to be yourself - that's what they like."
Technology, London
"I was asked logic questions; questions about some of things on my CV; and more typical questions such as: why investment banking? why Nomura? where do I see myself in x years? tell us an example of a time when you have come into conflict with someone and for teamwork examples, etc."
London
"What do you think operations involves? What are your thoughts on change? Explain what skills you have that are suitable to the role you have applied for. What skills have you learnt from previous jobs that will be transferable to this role in the bank. Then I had many CV based questions which were related back to the Operations job I applied for."
London
"I was asked a lot of competency based questions and almost no technical questions. First round was all about my CV and my accomplishments/experiences, then second round was mainly "Give me an example when you have shown a certain quality" style questions."
Technology, London
"Questions included: how would you sell me this glass of water? How did you like your internship at a previous employer? What possible global risks are there at the moment for my clients?"
Global Markets, London
"I was mostly asked interpersonal questions about how well would I get on with people though there was a question about what computing languages I've used. There was a sense that I would be able to learn new skills so it mattered more to fit in."
London
