A new survey of 1,000 13-17-year-olds reveals that Generation Z feels optimistic about the future – and that’s despite COVID-19! 75% of those surveyed said new careers would be created as a result of COVID-19 while further 66% believe their generation will be more likely to work freelance jobs than past generations, writes Mark C. Perna for Forbes. Almost half of them (45%) do not expect to change their career plans due to the pandemic, but about a third (34%) believe COVID-19 will lower their income over their lifetime. When it comes to life plans in general, the youngest generation does not seem to be affected much by recent months. 73% said they feel the pandemic will not negatively affect their ultimate success and happiness.
