Gen Y measures career success by how much they earn
A new survey has discovered that for majority of youngsters in China success in career is defined mostly by compensation.
In the poll, conducted by global human resources firm Hays on 1,000 people aged 18 to 30, 64 percent said that creating personal wealth was their top priority, China Daily reported.
A Hays expert said that the results of the survey are not surprising, given that the country remains a relatively poor developing country where many people have been attracted to the cities from rural areas in the hope of making a better life for themselves.
The expert asserted that Generation Y Chinese now have the chance to increase their income by working hard and furthering their careers.
Making money appears to be the most important incentive for the majority of people surveyed, the expert added.
Compared to China , other surveyed countries listed their top priorities as job satisfaction and enjoyment of work.
