    Unless you have some connections somewhere, I wouldn't count on banking anytime soon after graduation if you went into that field.

    Kinesiology is more geared towards teaching while something like exercise science under kinesiology is for the applied fields.

    I'm going to double major in dietetics and excercise science then become a doctor of physical therapy, eventually opening up my own clinic.

    a nutrition degree is more useful, but i'd imagine with a kines degree you could go into exercise rehab, physical therapy, personal training, consulting, etc.

    do what you enjoy and the rest will fall into place.
