Abstract

This research study focuses on the career expectations of millennial human resource management students while exploring the expectations of both male and female students. The study explores literature on the millennial generation, work-life balance, and gender. The study uses a qualitative approach through interviewing 4 male and 6 female participants. The themes that emerged are career progression and development, work-life balance, pay and success & family. The results of the study suggest that the students have similar career expectations and their gender is not a significant influence on their career expectations, however there are similar and different opinions amongst the participants. Recommendations were made based on the results.
