Where the young are happy

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - WOMEN IN BUSINESS -

MOST mil­len­ni­als refuse to work for a com­pany with a “bad im­age”, new re­search shows.

And de­spite a push for equal pay, men study­ing at univer­sity ex­pect to land a job faster, be paid more and work harder than women.

The GradAus­tralia stu­dent sur­vey also found that Google was the most sought-af­ter em­ployer.

Deloitte was the top pick for ac­count­ing stu­dents, Qan­tas was pop­u­lar among trans­port and lo­gis­tics grad­u­ates, and the Depart­ment of For­eign Af­fairs and Trade was most in de­mand for those eye­ing a pub­lic sec­tor job.

Stephanie Borgman, head of peo­ple pro­grams at Google Aus­tralia and New Zealand, said stu­dents wanted to land a job at the tech gi­ant to work on prod­ucts that change ev­ery­day life. “They want to build tech­nol­ogy that helps mil­lions of peo­ple live hap­pier and eas­ier lives.”
