There is still a long way to go; this writing is actually a process of growth for me as a Gen Y fresh graduate. This dissertation opens with my concern that I expressed my own feelings and viewpoints about the future employment. Here and now, I nearly finish this research with reconsideration full of mixed emotions. Primarily, when Arsenault (2004) argues that Gen Ys’ strong technical skills mismatch strong problem-solving skills or independent thinking, I become realise that Gen Ys should be prepared to prove themselves and gain the respect of peers and superiors before demanding a raise, a promotion, or telecommuting (Fenn, 2010; Nishizaki, 2013).

For example, it would be interesting to explore time regarded as an important medium of exchange or appropriate multi-directional career management issue rather than linear progression among Gen Y in current labour pool. Further examination is still necessarily needed on the topic involving attracting and retaining Gen Y talent in this era of constantly evolving
