Members of the post-95 generation are increasingly interested in working in tier-two or tier-three cities and they are more willing to work out of interests and hobbies, according to a report released by Tencent and 58 Group, Beijing Morning Post reported Wednesday.
The report focused on job seekers' behavioral characteristics at middle or basic level from 2017 to 2018, revealing the temptation of tier-one cities is dropping. The percentage of post-95s that want to work in tier-two or tier-three cities has increased to 41.3 percent.
Post-95s think highly of "emotional release, self-expression and spiritual freedom" when seeking employment compared to material benefits including salary and welfare.
According to the report, 16 percent of post-95s are willing to leave their own provinces to work. The top five provinces in terms of labor force export are Anhui, Sichuan, Henan, Jiangxi and Hunan, with Jiangxi province contributing the most.
