Let’s talk about our jobs/career goals. (If you don’t plan to work after college, reflect on a job you’ve had in the past.)
- What type of occupation do you hold or want to gain access to once you finish your degree?
- Will you be entering into a nontraditional occupation for your gender?
- Describe the process by which you decided to enter into that occupation. Did you consider the gender-type of the occupation at all (did it cross your mind), or do you think the gender aspect of your decision was somewhat unconscious?
- What challenges or opportunities/advantages might you experience in that occupation because of your gender?
- Why do you think it is that most men and women enter into occupations which are typical for their gender? How does this pattern persist?
