Employment and Career Goals Report

Vital insights into Gen Z and Millennials' behavior, plans, and views—with major takeaways for brands.

Now, more than a  year later, we are revisiting Millennials’ employment status and career goals, for a clear picture of what’s ahead. This report delves into young peoples’ employment status, their outlook on the economy, and the significant COVID-related shifts in career goals among Millennials.
