And what does Citi expect us to learn from our experiences and does the experience have to be related to banking?

I think Citi values all types of experiences. I had many other part time roles, extra curricular activities that I learned a lot from. What is important is to show what you learned from these experience and what skills these roles gave to you.

From my experience, banking experience is not a "must" - Citi accepts people from a variety of backgrounds. What is more important is having demonstrable values that align with the Citi culture, such as forward thinking mindset, strong communication skills, creativity and leadership.

Sorry to butt in, can I ask what it is meant by 'forward thinking mindset'

Hi Christopher, no worries! To be forward thinking is to have qualities like being bold, curious, and adaptable. Given that the banking industry as a whole is moving in a strongly digital direction, it helps to have people who also have a fresh and innovative mindset. I hope this answers your question.

Thank you Rhea. I understand, basically follow the trends that affect the banking industry e.g. Blockchain. So one should go to Blockchain events, or learn coding, for FinTech conferences?

Unless you're applying for a developer / IT analyst role I don't think coding knowledge is a must. But having a good knowledge of digital trends (not just in banking), and being aware of key players in digital ecosystems, as well as best practices is definitely helpful and highly valued here.
