Abstract: The aim of this article is the presentation of the preferences of the Faculty of Economics students representing Generation Y on their future employment, place of work and expectations towards the organisation they will start work at. In order to achieve the success of the organisation there must be masterised the ability to benefit from the human resources effectively. People may be an engine to acquire positive results or contrary they may restrain the futher development of the organisation. In modern organisations the crucial aspect is the view on their functioning from the human beings’ point of view where a human being is considered not only as an employee but also as a social individual. While doing research on the expectations of the students entering the labour market, their attitudes and preferences, there may be noticed the impact on the direction of the majority of enterprises evolution. The present generation of the vicenarians entering in a year or two into the labour market is the perfect determinant for the organisations which getting to know his or her preferations will be able to adjust their culture, work management and way of approach to the employee in order to meet the anticipations of future employees and consequently enhance the organisation effectiveness. The research done on the Faculty of Economis of UMCS students shows the expectations which often mingle with the students’ dreams related to their potential job after university graduation.
