    Fewer than one in 10 young people with work experience have ever been full-time regular employees, a study finds.

    According to The Seoul Institute, which polled around 700 people between 18 and 29, more than 78 percent of them had done some kind of work, but just seven percent had been employed full-time. A majority had worked as temps or for an hourly wage.

    The survey found that the older respondents in their later 20s had a stronger preference for jobs at big conglomerates -- about 36 percent -- compared to younger ones at about 15 percent.
