Despite a reputation for being flighty and impatient, a new survey has found Generation-Y students want to find steady and stable work.

The survey of 27,000 Canadian students by research firm Decode and recruitment consultancy Brainstorm Consulting, found 54 per cent of students would like to find an employer where they can spend their entire career.

And while most respondents know which industry they want to work in after graduation, only thirty per cent have their minds made up about the organization they want to work for.
