Widespread job loss due to the pandemic in 2020, followed by record-high ‘quit rates’ in 2021, has allowed candidates to continue to drive the labor market. In other words, recruiters are still battling for Gen Z’s attention in the war on talent in 2022.

Now more than ever, recruiters are at risk of losing even the most excited and engaged candidate to another company at every corner. And early career talent acquisition specialists are in the most unique position as they interact with a population of soon-to-be-workers who have known nothing else but this new reality.

In March 2022, we conducted a survey of more than 4,800 students to understand their experience in today’s market when it comes to salaries and benefits, as well as what workplace values keep them excited about their roles. We have put together a robust report of our findings to help recruitment teams better understand the candidates entering the labor market.

What do nearly 5,000 Gen Z candidates think about the state of today's internship & job search? Our latest report highlights a liberal attitude toward reneges, multiple offers, and a clear preference for hybrid workplaces.
