With the support of the’’Közösen a Jövõ Munkahelyeiért Alapítvány’’ (=Together for Future Workplaces Fund) our 2016 research aims the pursuit of finding answers for the relation of labor market and digitalization, the labor market role onto the new generation and the factors regarding professional career. The labor market goes through a radical change among others due to the unstoppable technical development. Digitalization expanded the over-segmented labor market and its competency needs even more. It also has an impact on the more strongly occurring generation problems. From our point of view the gap has never been so deep among those active generations who are working at the same place. The cause behind the change is simple: The industrial society had been gradually replaced by the information society, which has been followed by the knowledge-based society, that entirely alters interpersonal communication. Internet facilitates the acquirement of information, however, it changes the nature of relationships and induces never seen generational problems. Our research topic is to analyze digital competency and labor market relationship from the aspect of lifelong learning career orientation.The current study displays certain crucial details of the previous assessment.
