Japanese Graduates Change Up Favorite Career Paths
Japanese students were once very interested in pursuing a financial or banking career. In fact, it was one of the most popular career choices for Japaneses students. However, the career path for the typical Japanese student has taken a dramatic turn. The number of Japanese students that are majoring in banking and finance has dropped dramatically. The reason for this striking reduction in banking and finance majors is due to the state of the economy in Japan, along with the dwindling interest rates. The students predict that the lower interest rates will lead to less jobs available in the banking and finance industry in the country.
Pursuing Other Careers
The Japanese students are pursuing other studies that guarantee a lucrative career or at least that they will find a job in a growth industry, instead of an industry like banking or finance that is declining. The average student is searching for a career alternative with great potential to provide them with a career that thrives, instead of declining. Now, Japanese students are turning to high technology jobs that involve the Internet, Information Science, or Artificial Intelligence. Chemistry and the Food industry are also thriving industries in the country.
The Banking Industry Future In Japan
Insiders state that the banking industry in Japan will remain very relevant even in the face of mass lay-offs and reductions in personnel in the future. However, the banking industry will change with the new technology. The Banking industry will still hire graduates with degrees involving the Internet, Information Science, and Artificial Intelligence.
