斜杠青年
    2017-December-26  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

xiégàng qīngnián

Meaning:

“斜杠” means “slash,” and “青年” refers to “young people.” The New York Times columnist Marci Alboher, author of “One Person/Multiple Careers: A New Model for Work/Life Success,” popularized to the term “slash” to refer to a person with concurrent multiple careers. Such a person, for instance, may introduce themselves a photographer/author. An online survey conducted by www.baike.com revealed that more than 80 percent of the 18-25 age group in China expressed a willingness to develop multiple careers, seeing it an opportunity to live life fuller and freer.

Example:

A: 小林总是非常忙。

Xiǎolín zǒngshì fēicháng máng。

Xiao Lin is always very busy.

B: 他是个斜杠青年,白天是平面设计师,晚上在酒吧唱歌。

Tā shì gè xiégàng qīngnián, báitiān shì píngmiàn shèjì shī, wǎnshàng zài jǐubā chànggē。

He has multiple careers, working as a graphic designer in the day and performing as a singer in pubs at night.
