Here's What Jobs Young Workers Are Looking For in Mississauga


Gen Z Mississaugans are slowly starting to make their way into the workforce, but where are they searching for their future careers?

According to a recent Indeed Blog post, Gen Z has a keen interest in ‘future proof’ jobs.

The post collected numbers based on Gen Zers of graduating age and compared them to everyone else. A “popularity index” was also created to show how much more frequently they click on specific full-time job postings compared to all other job seekers.

Some of the top jobs found included:

  • Pediatric Nurse Practitioner
  • Junior Marketing Associate
  • Actuary
  • Video Game Designer
  • Architectural Technician

Indeed claims that growing up in a technological age may be the main reason why many of these job searches tend to be related to the business, marketing or finance fields.

Apart from the tech and media-related jobs, a few more traditional jobs showed up on the list. Actuaries, paralegals and laboratory analysts are all in demand and offer plenty of career opportunities. 

Many of the jobs are also noted to be entry-level or require minimal university education. Indeed claims this might be due to Gen Z’s desire to enter the workforce to achieve their dreams, such as homeownership.

As more Gen Z students graduate and join the workforce, it will be interesting to see what careers they will follow. Do these trends predict the future, or will it change as time goes on?

What do you think of these trends?
