Interview Study to Understand the Experiences of Women in Non-Traditional Careers
Women who are in the first 5 years of a “traditionally male” career are needed for a research study on work experiences (must be 18 years of age or older to participate).
Women in the United States continue to be significantly underrepresented in particular career areas. The United States Department of Labor, for instance, refers to nontraditional occupations for women as those “in which women comprise 25 percent or less of total employment” (2008). These occupations include architects, chefs, clergy, computer programmers, detectives, engineers, fire fighters, machinists, pilots, and truck drivers. The implications of these gaps are far-reaching.
Participants will complete a 60 minute interview and brief online survey, and will be compensated with a $15 Starbucks gift card. Participation is voluntary and confidential.
