While Millennials are turning to ‘side gigs’ to make ends meet, Gen Z is focused on working for themselves and only themselves.
According to an infographic by OnlineSchoolsCentre.com, almost half of Gen Zers plan to become entrepreneurs.
Among today’s middle and high school students:
- 45% say they will invent something world-changing
- 41% plan to start their own business
When it comes to what this generation considers important in a job, 72% prioritise good pay, 64% want inspiring work, and only 62% considered good benefits important.
Gen Z were also found to value social connections over work/life balance, as well as good day-to-day experiences over great benefits.
This generation has also been found to be more open towards alternative paths for learning such as online courses and resources.
