Today, career choices are made more deliberately than succumbing to peer/parental pressure. Thus, aspiring professionals can express themselves through their nature of work and set renewed and higher standards of job satisfaction. This thinking has given Generation Y a wide range of interesting careers that brings the world closer to art and its expression.
