Move over, millennials. The new kids on the block are Gen Zers and they’re coming to a job market near you. Those born between 1997 and 2012 may seem young, but the eldest of the pack are starting their first jobs and they’re eager to climb the ladder.
According to a new study out by Glassdoor, Gen Zers are aspiring to work in tech — the majority of job applications from Gen Zers were for companies in the tech industry, followed by business services, finance and retail. IBM, Google, Amazon, Microsoft and Deloitte are the top five companies that Gen Z are applying to on Glassdoor. However, the most in-demand jobs among Gen Zers can be found across a plethora of industries. This means that Gen Z is competiting for the best jobs across the board, and they’re moving fast.
“Gen Z is 100% digitally native, meaning they are the first job seekers to be born during the age of smartphones, self-service online tools and AI-enabled virtual assistants like Siri and Alexa,” says Kurt Heikkinen, CEO of candidate engagement and interview software, Montage. “They’ve never known a world without the convenience and speed of digital interaction. As a result, they expect the exact same experience when it comes to the job search.”
