Technological advances bring transformation in employment, such as the shift of work towards digitalization. The covid-19 pandemic has also encouraged increasing technology use at work.

Generation Z is a generation that currently and will face this change where they are required to have more skills so they able to compete to get and maintain their jobs.. Self-perceived employability measures individual perceptions of their ability to get and keep jobs later. This study aims to get an overview of the level of self-perceived employability in Generation Z in Indonesia by involving 1157 college students in their third and fourth years.
