This research linked more than six thousand people [1] from nine countries: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Spain, Mexico, Peru, Puerto Rico and Portugal. It was found that 57% would prefer to be hired by a company, while 26% would bet on their own company. On the other hand, 17% would choose to work independently for third parties. Regarding the sectors in which they prefer to work, the respondents answered the following: 63% would choose to work in the private sector, 32% in the public sector and only 5% in some NGO (Non-Governmental Organization). Likewise, 46% of all respondents stated that: having medical insurance, having premiums, liquidations, are the main benefits of being hired in a company. 36% considered job stability important, while 16% highlighted the career plan (academic training, labor mobility, among others) and only 2% holidays. Ricardo Garcés, spoke on the subject "Currently people seek job security in companies: an indefinite term [Contingent Employment][1] contract, receiving benefits of law and other benefits. While the economic issue is the main factor to consider, many prefer a career plan within the organisation and the opportunities that the company can provide in education and vocational training.

In addition, experience acquires more and more value, since in the current labor market dynamics it functions as a selection criterion. This survey showed us that recent graduates are aware of the challenges, objectives and in some cases, requirements that must be met to face the world of work. " [1]:
