Most of our lifetime is determined by working, which not only provides us with income, but also creates identity, meaning and status. Work, however, is determined by an overarching socio-economic structure, which reaches beyond crude working sectors. Thus, in this paper, we speak of "working worlds". Driven by a variety of distinct processes, the working world is constantly changing. This is not only a result of new technologies, but also due to social dynamics such as demographic change, economic events or generation-related perspectives. In addition, since the global pandemic took place, the transformation of working worlds accelerated significantly. This creates both opportunities and challenges for individuals as well as entire societies. But one should not assume that these conditions prevail in the same way in different parts of the world. Rather, the framework conditions are as diverse as the working worlds and vice versa. With this in mind, the present paper is focusing on the conditions and dynamics of the working worlds in Germany and South Korea, with the aim of providing recommendations as perceived by the young generation.
