Abstract: This article broadens our understanding of the key factors held important by Generation Y graduates at the beginning of their career and in the longer term. Using the results of a questionnaire with 340 undergraduate business school respondents across two universities, students' experiences of, and attitudes towards, retail employment while a student are explored. The article moves on to consider the employment factors considered by these Generation Y students to be most important immediately after graduation and then in their longer term career. The findings demonstrate the value systems held by Generation Y and recommendations are made to retailers on how to better attract potential graduates to the sector.
