Gen Y girls more career oriented than male counterparts
Melbourne – A new survey suggests that go-getting girls are forging careers and settling down faster than men their age.
According to the Australia’s biggest Gen Y marketing survey, young men are more likely to “live in the moment”, while women plan ahead for financial security, the annual Lifelounge Sweeney report showed.
One in three teenage boys and men aged 16 to 30 reckons the future will “take care of itself”, compared to just one in four girls and young women, News.com.au reported.
Half the women surveyed declared that they were “impatient to have what I want”, compared to 39 percent of men.
The survey showed that teenage girls and young women are more connected to family and friends, with 57 percent turning to family for advice and guidance, in contrast to 46 percent of men.
And half the young women declared that they often thought about those less fortunate – compared to just one in three men.
But Gen Y men find it easier than women to make new friends.
