Heading: The Gen Z Guide to making career choices in Singapore today
Snowflake generation, strawberry generation — the older generations haven’t been kind to Gen Zers and their quirks. But these very quirks make them stand apart from the boomers and Gen Xers of the workplace. They are the workforce who’s willing to pursue their dreams on their terms.
Born between 1996 to 2000, Gen Zers look for meaning not just in their relationships, but in the work they do. The benefits that used to keep the previous generation at the office may not always work for the Gen Z crowd. So, how do you choose a job that fits your needs?
Stepping up to new possibilities
What does this job offer you? Is it a profession that lets you follow your passion or hobby? Does it come with a fat paycheck and a promise of a promotion in the future? How about your work-life balance and your relationship with colleagues? Your career choice is dependent on these decisions. And don’t forget to take your lifestyle into account when it comes to choosing the right career, either.
Now that we have covered the basics, let’s move to the next crucial step. How much of your paycheck can go to your savings and investments, while leaving enough for your essential needs? Take your life goals into consideration as you move through the different stages of life, so that you are in a career that can support your future education or your family expenses. If you have planned to buy a flat or a car sometime in the future, your career progression should be able to meet these growing needs.

Singapore continues to be the centre of several industries, with the financial sector leading the business market.
