Purpose - The purpose of this paper is to identify the relationship of career anchors with three aspects: the millennials' professional skills, the millennials' awareness of the replacement of jobs with new technologies and the technological stress in the millennials' working environment. Design/methodology/approach The responses of 200 questionnaires were analyzed using descriptive and variance analysis techniques. Findings Among the three hypotheses raised, two were confirmed, showing that these young people recognize the development of professional skills through new technologies, but are not highly sensitive to the stress associated with technological innovations. Originality/value The paper contributes to a recent debate, which emphasizes the impact of the application of new technologies on the nature of study and employment levels.
