Generation Y Top Career Concerns

In a recent survey conducted by Robert Half International and Yahoo! HotJobs, members of Generation Y (those who are 21 to 28 years old) cited the following top career concerns:
  • Financial Security (33 percent)
  • Job Stability (26 percent)
  • Career Satisfaction (23 percent)
More than 1,000 adults between the ages of 21 and 28 were polled for the project.

Robert Half International is also offering a free webinar, "Driving Change in Recruitment" about their Gen Y study on Thursday, Feb. 28 at 11 a.m. Pacific Time (2 p.m. Eastern Time). Register here.

"The Gen Y professionals we surveyed were focused on practical concerns, such as saving enough money for retirement and being able to balance work and family obligations," said Reesa Staten, senior vice president and director of workplace research for Robert Half International. "These basic quality-of-life needs are common among all demographics in the workplace."
