What employers say
A well rounded, diverse candidate who is comfortable with numbers and communication skills is harder to find than you would think as many are pushing their "technical skills". A strong analytical background is a plus, but if they can't be seen as someone who can speak to clients and work on teams, it does not matter.
As a recruiter one of the challenges we see, particularly from top tier universities, is that students think that academic results are enough to get them through the selection process. At the FSA we recruit from all disciplines and are looking for a range of competencies both quantitative and communicative.
When we look at young graduates we recruit into BP we look for the potential to grow into future leaders. For us this means we are looking for those who will be able to Energise People, Value Expertise, Act Decisively and Deliver Results.
