Workers in finance and banking are amongst the least likely to recommend their career path to their children. Do you agree?
According to a salary.com survey, only 24% of respondents in the finance and banking sector would recommend that their children follow in their footsteps. The only industry to record a smaller figure was retail, at 18%.
At the other end of the spectrum were agriculture workers, with 67% – a result that could be attributed to respondents hoping that their offspring will take over the family farm.
Next up was professional services (44%), IT (43%), health care (42%) and energy and utilities (36%).
Within the finance and banking sector, specific results were not made available for responses from financial advisers.
