Are They Still Banking on a Future in Finance?

Attracting STEM & Business Students to the Financial Industry

Post financial crisis, the future of recruiting in the financial services industry looked bleak. Trust in financial institutions lagged behind the recovery, making it challenging for companies in the industry to recruit top talent. Across the industry (and in investment banking in particular), employers are doing a better job meeting the expectations of students – something this report will chronicle in detail. Yet it’s important to note that many small changes do not represent a transformation – and the industry still has serious challenges ahead.
Each year, Universum surveys the professional expectations of more than 1,000,000 career-seekers from 55 countries, and publishes dozens of reports on the top issues affecting global talent and the companies that hire talent. In this report, part of our Future Talent Insight Series, we uncover what university students look for from future employers in banking, financial services, and insurance – and how companies can translate these findings into actionable steps for HR, recruiting and C-level leadership.
