To dream of employment represents your feelings about obligations or responsibilities being mandatory. A person or situation you need to take care of because you risk losing status, power, or progress already made.
Negatively, employment may be a sign that you are feeling too obligated to something that may not be in your best interest or as important as you feel it is.
To dream of needing employment may reflect a desire to regain feelings of relevance being needed, or carrying your own weight. Feeling unimportant.

To dream of having a new job may reflect feelings about extra responsibilities you are taking on. New situations you are experiencing that “feel like work.” Not enjoying something you expected to enjoy. Feelings about being obligated to someone. Feeling that someone is bossing you around too much or not appreciating your contributions. Feeling subservient to people you are doing favors for.
Alternatively, dreams about your job or employment may reflect waking life frustrations with your job.
