It would absolutely suck to be in your early twenties right now. Their employment opportunities looked pretty dismal even before the pandemic. Now there's the added downer of the impact on their social lives and opportunities to see the world and really experience life.

“Generation Covid”...? Seriously?

Most young people are innovative, creative and have an indomitable spirit. This is their chance to change the world, make it more community spirited, more environmentally friendly, more geared to people over profit.

I would agree with that.

Hopefully these people in their twenties ( and anyone for that matter) that will be looking for a job can anticipate and prepare an appropriate answer to an almost certain interview question. Such a question will be something like “How did you improve your skills, or what new skills did you learn, when you were looking for a job during the pandemic"?   Those that give a great answer, such as they learned a new language, computer skills, or especially skills relating to the job for which they are interviewing, etc., will have one heck of an advantage to land that job.
