Generation Hired Is Our Favorite Job Site For Gen Z, Here’s Why

I will never forget graduating from college and navigating the job search for the first time. Between the endless hunt for job postings, hours spent applying to roles, and dozens of email follow-ups with employers, let’s just say the entire process can be exhausting. In case you missed it, we recently launched Generation Hired presented by Neutrogena®, a brand new job-seeking platform that connects you with roles you’ll love. Gen Hired is the resource I wish I would’ve had in college, and it’s here to make the job search a lot easier for Gen Z!

Chances are, you know that finding (and securing) a job nowadays is hard work, and it takes a lot more than sending out your resume to land a job that’s perfect for you. Gen Hired helps streamline your search while connecting you directly with employers so you can sit back, relax, and let the opportunities come to you. Here are five reasons why we love Generation Hired, and how the platform can help you score a job you actually want:

Gen Hired simplifies the process for finding internships and jobs.

Gone are the days of scouring a million job sites to find your perfect match. When you create a free profile on Generation Hired, you’ll get connected with internships, part-time, and full-time roles in media, tech, public relations, and more. Plus, you can learn what makes each company special, from unlimited bring-your-dog-to-work days to offering tuition assistance for college students. Once your profile is complete, Gen Hired will connect you with companies where there’s mutual interest. Then, just sit back, relax, and let employers contact you. 

You can attend curated events for Gen Z.

We know how difficult it can be to navigate the job market right now. That’s why Generation Hired offers curated webinars focused on topics that make sense for you, our smart, savvy community of college students and recent grads. Whether you want to ace your next virtual interview or learn how to send follow-ups appropriately, we’ve got you covered. Check out the events page for a list of upcoming webinars, then grab your journal and get ready to jot down our insider tips and tricks!

You can showcase your unique career journey.

As someone who worked in many different industries before landing a role in media, I know how challenging it can be to represent your career journey in a virtual application. My absolute favorite feature on Generation Hired is the “questions” section, where you can submit responses to questions like What are you passionate about? and what do you hope to gain from your next job or internship? I love that this feature lets you showcase your personality beyond your resume while giving employers insight into why you’re a great fit for their company.

You can share your social media and digital portfolio.

Many job sites require that you submit a standard resume and cover letter with your application. While Gen Hired allows you to upload traditional materials like this, the platform also allows you to include your LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Github, website, and digital portfolio to help employers get a holistic view of who you are as a candidate! Whether you’re a graphic designer with an amazing Instagram aesthetic or a writer whose witty tweets could go viral, sharing your social media presence or digital portfolio can help you stand out during the hiring process.

The platform is totally free.

Finding a great job or internship shouldn’t cost a fortune. While many job-seeking platforms are subscription-based or charge extra for premium features, Generation Hired is totally free to use, making it an accessible resource that’s perfect for Gen Z. Plus, you can access free blog content, exclusive events, and easily network with employers, making professional development and advancing your career a breeze.
