What banking career students really want
The Deloitte Talent in Banking Survey 2014 dispelled some major preconceptions regarding what students want from a career in banking.
This report is based on a global survey of 174,000 business students from 2,000 universities, and produced in collaboration with Universum. The resulting answers were somewhat surprising as we explored intentions, aspirations and associations in relation to banking careers.
Contrary to popular belief, for instance, training and development matter more than money to students considering a career in banking. They also want their first job to last five or more years, and look for stability in their future careers.
Students considering a banking career want a good work/life balance, as well as stability and security
Other Key findings throughout the survey:
- Fast Moving Consumer Goods sector knocks banking off its top spot
- Tech companies rise in popularity
- Bank-inclined students want a balanced and steady career
- Preparing for the future matters most in a first job
- Banks should focus more on diversity and equality to increase their talent pool
