Meet Generation Z: The New High-Tech and High-Touch Generation of Talent

During the spring and early summer of 2019, as graduation ceremonies kick off nationwide, a new generation of job seekers will be entering the workforce for the very first time.

These recent and soon-to-be graduates are members of Generation Z, and their career-preparation and job-seeking behaviors will affect the strategies and tactics of talent acquisition leaders for years to come.

Considering the strong labor market, do you plan to negotiate a higher salary in your current or future job?

The 2019 Yello Recruiting Study surveys hundreds of candidates to compare Generation Z, Millennials and Generation X.

This report finds:

  • Candidates across all generations are aware of today’s tight labor market—60% plan to use the strong economy to their advantage during salary negotiations.
  • More than half of Generation Z candidates won’t even submit an application if they think the company’s recruiting methods are outdated.
  • The majority of job seekers (81%) expect the hiring process to wrap up in two weeks, tops.
