Question of the Day: What careers is Gen Z most interested in?



  • What is your desired career at this point? Why does that interest you?
  • What education/training do you need for this career?
  • Have you ever had a conversation with someone who does this job? What did you learn OR what would you ask them?

Behind the numbers (Indeed):

"Almost half of our list of popular jobs for Gen Z is made up of tech-related jobs, including the top four spots. Fittingly enough for a generation of digital natives, Apple, the world’s first trillion-dollar company, is a strong draw. The number-one iOS developer was clicked on 3.2 times more often by graduation-age Gen Zers than by other job seekers."
