Generation Z candidates are optimistic about their future job prospects, according to insight from research by Phenom People. Despite this, a gap exists between candidates' experiences and their expectations. The study focused on responses from 4,000 participants globally, revealing that while 64% of Gen Z candidates were confident they would find a job of their choice, only 31% reported receiving a positive candidate experience. The study also showed that Gen Z applicants have high career mobility, expecting to remain at their first job for no more than two years. Offering benefits, creating meaningful roles, and meeting salary demands are crucial for employers to attract and retain these new entrants to the job market.
