What we’re looking for

All candidates who join the Bank of America family share several powerful traits. Below are some characteristics we look for when filling positions across the company. Understanding these qualities can help you determine if you are a good fit for us, and if we are a good fit for you.

A genuine interest in our business

We are a financial services organization that serves three groups of clients – individuals, companies and institutional investors. Our clients have unique needs and we are passionately committed to serving them. We want individuals who share this passion, who are excited to come to work and look for new ways to better serve our clients and make financial lives better.

Committed to our purpose

What would you like the power to do? At Bank of America we ask this question every day of all those we serve. It is at the core of how we live our values, deliver our purpose and achieve responsible growth. Our purpose is to help make financial lives better through the power of every connection. This is the foundation for how we operate our business, work with our clients and make a positive impact in communities around the world.    

“Teaching financial literacy has been my passion outside of work and it’s one of the most gratifying volunteer experiences, empowering people with financial concepts and practical skills that lead to a better financial future.”

Lilly Zhou | Client Quantitative Senior Analyst, Chief Administrative Officer Group, Boston, Mass.

Passion for serving our clients and the communities in which we work

“Working at Bank of America for over two decades serving both external and internal clients has reinforced the value of a positive attitude above all else. The outcomes include lasting relationships, loyalty and the right results.”

Deirdre O'Shaughnessy | Business Support Lead, Global Technology & Operations, Dublin, Ireland

Rich and varied experiences

When we have employees who mirror the diversity and experiences of our clients and communities, we’re better positioned to deliver results and grow responsibly. This means we actively pursue individuals inside and outside of our industry, and place a premium on knowledge in different areas and diverse experience. 

“We have people from all over the world with different backgrounds — from the best universities in the world, to the smallest liberal arts schools no one has ever heard of. That’s what makes this place unique, that you can come from different corners of the world, with a different life perspective, and you are valued for your unique point of view.”

Quirico E. Perez III | Latin America Investment Banker, Global Banking & Markets, New York, N.Y.

Personal integrity and accountability

Our business focuses on managing risk, solving complex problems for our clients and helping make financial lives better. Our clients place their trust in us, and we take this responsibility seriously.

Ability to bring your authentic self and distinctive expertise to every situation

We are committed to maintaining a diverse workplace and an inclusive culture so that employees can bring their whole selves to work every day.

“Diversity and inclusion is all about how to create the right work environment so that we can be our whole selves in the office. We need to constantly work towards bringing diverse thought and opinion to the table.”

Ruairi Young | Director, Chief Financial Officer Group, Chester, United Kingdom

Aptitude for leadership

We are always on the lookout for tomorrow’s leaders and offer leadership development programs to help employees grow and achieve their individual career goals.

“Look for opportunity, get out of your comfort zone, be inquisitive and ask questions.”

Jennifer C. Williams | Operational Excellence Executive, Consumer & Small Business, Seattle, Wash.

Respect for our values and culture of inclusion

At Bank of America, we live our values – deliver together, act responsibly, realize the power of our people and trust the team. We’re committed to maintaining a diverse workplace and an inclusive culture. This means we value differences in thought, style, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity and expression, race, ethnicity, culture, age, ability and experience.   

“Different thinking, experiences and personalities produce creativity, generate new ideas and drive innovation. Diversity is a must in everything I do.”
