Nearly a quarter of new college graduates said they wouldn’t take a job where they couldn’t make personal phone calls, according to a study from Adecco Group North America. A third said they likely would stay at any one job for three years or less. Ninety-one percent said they would leave an unsatisfying job within a year. “With social media, this generation can see everything their peers are doing. So they feel like they have to move more often to keep up with where their friends and classmates are,” says Janette Marx, senior vice president of Adecco Group North America.
Seventy-four percent of those surveyed are looking for good health benefits, followed by job security (73%), opportunities for growth and development (68%), work and life flexibility (66%), and a high salary (61%).
