GenZ: Embracing freelancing for independence and work-life stability

The way we work is changing rapidly, and Generation Z is at the forefront of this exciting shift. Born between the mid-1990s and early 2010s, Gen Z is redefining what it means to have a successful career. With a preference for freelancing, a strong desire for work-life balance, and a focus on independence, Gen Z is making a big impact on the tech freelance market. Tools like CoGig are emerging as key resources for Gen Z freelancers seeking success in this evolving landscape.

GenZ: A force for change

Preferring freelancing over traditional jobs:

Gen Z values freedom and flexibility. Traditional 9-to-5 jobs often feel restrictive to them. Freelancing offers the ability to set their own hours, choose projects that excite them, and create a career aligned with their values.

Embracing work-life balance:

Gen Z wants more than just a paycheque. They are less likely to buy into the "workaholic" mentality, instead prioritising their mental health, family connections, and personal time. Freelancing offers them the ability to structure their work around their lives, not the other way around. info image
