Gen Z Employment prospects

Workplace attitudes

USA Today reported that younger generations are “entering the workplace in the face of demographic change and an increasingly multi-generational workplace”.

Forbes contributor Kimberly Fries argues that Generation Z’s valuable characteristics are their acceptance of new ideas and a different conception of freedom from the previous generations.[101]

Despite the technological proficiency they possess, Alexandra Levit of The New York Times argues that members of Generation Z actually prefer person-to-person contact as opposed to online interaction. As a result of the social media and technology they are accustomed to, she says Generation Z is well prepared for a global business environment.[102] Alex Williams argues that Generation Z no longer wants just a job: they seek more than that. They want a feeling of fulfillment and excitement in their job that helps move the world forward.[58] Levit says Generation Z is eager to be involved in their community and their futures, and that before college, Generation Z is already out in their world searching how to take advantage of relevant professional opportunities that will give them experience for the future.[102]
