Survey: Career and Generation Y 2016
The largest survey ever carried out on Generation Y in Greece and Europe, by kariera.gr (CareerBuilder Greece)!
The survey was conducted for the third year by kariera.gr (CareerBuilder Greece), the leading website for jobs in Greece, in collaboration with the Human Resource Management Workshop of the Department of Marketing and Communication of the Athens University of Economics and Business, from April to May 2016. A first for Europe, the Career and Generation Y 2016 survey conducted by kariera.gr in cooperation with the Athens University of Economics and Business is the largest study ever to have been conducted in a European country on Generation Y.
5.208 young people, representatives of Generation Y (born between 1980-2000) who are aged between 18 and 35 and are students or graduates of universities/higher technical institutes from all over Greece, took part in the survey which used a structured online questionnaire and random sampling methods. The size of the sample restricts margin error to 1% and makes this the largest survey ever conducted in Greece or any other European country on Generation Y.
The purpose of this survey is to analyse the attitudes of young people of this generation in Greece towards their career and what is important for them when thinking about and planning their working lives. In 2016, the survey was enhanced with a section which studies the impact the crisis has had on young people’s careers.
Some of the results:
• Only 8% of Greek young people would like to work in the public sector
• 53% of young people would like to work for a Greek company
• 45.6% (of young people aged between 18 and 29 who stated that they are currently working) have a net salary of less than 500 euros a month
• 1 out of 2 young people declared that the economic crisis has affected their personal life
• The first most important reason for people resigning from their jobs is lack of fairness (84%) whilst compensation (69%) is the fifth most important reason
• The sector in which most young people wish to work is high-end technology and computing
