We're living through one of these events right now. Every person from every generation has been affected by COVID-19, but in this content package, we've been able to explore specifically how it's impacting teens and young adults.

It's important to create content for this specific generation as they begin to learn and apply personal finance in their everyday lives," said Levi Leidy, Jr. Writer/Editor at GOBankingRates. "They could be starting their first job, budgeting as a student, or launching a career -- but money matters, and how you first build that relationship with money can impact you for the rest of your life."

Key Points: 
  • Specialized training online or vocational training is proving the way to go for Gen Z over the traditional college path.
  • Thanks to apps and social media, Gen Z can access the stock market more easily than any previous generation.
  • According to another GOBankingRates survey , perks like working from home and flexible vacation time are a top priority for 41% of Gen Z workers.
