Members of ‘Gen Z’ demonstrate a strong interest in “future-proof” jobs, according to research released today by Indeed. Initial surveys also suggest that job stability is a priority for Gen Zers.
The oldest members of the Gen Z — born in 1997 — are graduating college this year, and Indeed’s analytics team crunched the numbers on Gen Zers of graduation age compared to everyone else. It also calculated a “popularity index” to show how much more frequently this group clicks on certain full-time job postings compared to all other job seekers.
The Gen Z popularity index compares graduation-age Gen Zers to all other job seekers. For each job, the index divides the number of clicks from graduation-age Gen Zers by the number of clicks from other job seekers. The results show how much more frequently Gen Zers of college graduation age clicked on certain full-time jobs compared to all other job seekers.
