Millennials and Gen Z’s job confidence down 18% in past two weeks
Millennials and Generation Z’s confidence surrounding getting or retaining a job has fallen 18% in the past two weeks, according to LinkedIn’s Workforce Confidence Index, which surveyed over 3,000 UK professionals. Baby boomers, in comparison, have seen their confidence increase 15% in the past two weeks.
Millennials are also concerned about progressing in their careers, with their confidence down 21% on two weeks ago. Generation Z are feeling more confident, up 40% in the past two weeks.
Janine Chamberlin, director of talent solutions at LinkedIn, said, “There’s no doubt that times are extremely tough right now for young people entering the job market or those in the early stages of their career who are adapting to a very different way of working. We can all do more to support them - from offering job seekers advice through our networks to help them find an opportunity and land a job, creating opportunities to help them gain new skills, and keeping our teams connected by creating a sense of belonging virtually.”
