Higher expectations were found only among Slovenians (€1,007) and Czechs (€880), the TASR newswire reported on April 13.

“Our students are very ambitious,” said Marián Hudák from Slovak branch of Deloitte, as quoted by TASR. “They think that they have big added value for employees, which is manifested in their salary expectations.”

Hudák added that the expectations of students are a result of the living standards and the overall salary levels in each country.

The poll also revealed that salaries rank third in importance in terms of what Slovak students and graduates consider when they search for work. Slovakia’s respondents also indicated that looking for opportunities for personal development and acquiring new skills was more important than finding a workplace with a friendly atmosphere, TASR wrote.
