【職場新氣象】研究：一半受訪Z世代嚮往成為企業家 Research suggests half of the surveyed Gen Z aspires to become entrepreneurs
In this ever-changing era, the traditional 9 to 5 work model no longer seems to align with the expectations of Generation Z. They are seeking more freedom and the ability to make an impact on the world. Consequently, more and more of Gen Z are choosing to move away from fixed working patterns and pursue their career dreams. According to a recent report by Samsung and Morning Consult, half of the surveyed Gen Z aspires to become entrepreneurs and establish their own business territories. But why do they make this choice?
- Seeking Autonomy and Freedom: During the pandemic, many discussions about online startups and unconventional careers ignited their imagination. They no longer see full-time employment as the only path, nor are they satisfied with fixed working models. They prioritize a career that they can control. For Gen Z, work isn't just about making a living, but more about achieving work-life balance. They hope to design their own career paths and live at their own pace.
- Influenced by Social Media: Driven by platforms like TikTok, Instagram, and YouTube, the "creator economy" is on the rise. Many Gen Zers see that with passion and creativity, they can monetize on these platforms and achieve their dreams.
- Challenging Traditional Thinking: In their view, becoming their own boss might bring a greater sense of accomplishment. This generation of young people doesn't want to be tied down. They hope to realize their dreams immediately and are unwilling to wait for opportunities. They don't want to wait to climb the corporate ladder and don't want to be confined to predefined patterns. For them, with the tools and opportunities available, why not pursue dreams now?
Becoming an entrepreneur is no easy task, but for Gen Z, such challenges also represent opportunities and possibilities. In this era full of uncertainties, Gen Z chooses to seize their future and pursue their true self-worth.
