The U.S. Department of Labor classifies nontraditional careers as those in which 25 percent or less of the people working in that particular career are of a particular gender. Nontraditional careers are found in all major occupational groups (from business and health care to construction, engineering, and public safety). Opportunities are available for people from all educational backgrounds from apprenticeship training to graduate degrees. Nontraditional Careers for Women & Men provides information on 22 nontraditional careers for women and 9 nontraditional careers for men. The U.S. Department of Labor (USDL) reports that nontraditional careers are especially attractive to women because they offer higher entry-level wages and a career ladder with pay between $20 and $40 per hour. Additionally, the USDL reports that growth in the economy is projected to expand employment in many of these occupations and secondly, there will be strong demand for workers in these fields due to expected retirements or transfers of current workers to other occupations. Additionally, most articles in Nontraditional Careers for Women & Men feature one or more interviews with professionals in that particular field, who provide useful advice on what it takes to land a job and be successful in the career especially as a worker in a nontraditional field for their gender. Other features include informative sidebars, photographs, an index, and three appendixes: Women s Construction Associations; Nontraditional Occupations of Employed Women in 2010; and Nontraditional Occupations of Employed Men in 2010.

Book Description College Career Press, United States, 2011. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Women are making great strides regarding gender equality and equal pay in the workplace. But there are many high-paying, fast-growing fields that young women still may not be aware of as exciting career options. The U.S. Department of Labor classifies nontraditional careers for women as those in which 25 percent or less of the people working in that particular career are female. Educational requirements for these rewarding jobs range from apprenticeship training to doctorate degrees. Careers include Business Executive, Architect, Computer Software Engineer, Chiropractor, Police Officer, Industrial Engineer, Firefighter, Civil Engineer, Construction Manager, and Carpenter, Electrician, and Airplane Pilot. There are also many rewarding careers that are not traditionally sought-after by male workers. This book features 5 careers in which fewer than 20 percent of males are employed. They include Dental Hygienist, Registered Nurse, Occupational Therapist, Paralegal, and Special Education Teacher. In each career article, we provide an overview of the career and typical work environments, recommended high school classes and activities, educational requirements, personal skills, methods of exploring the career while still in high school, tips on landing a job, typical employers, information on the employment outlook and hot specialties, and contact information for professional associations. The book also features interviews with women and men who have excelled in these careers. They provide advice to young people who are contemplating careers in nontraditional fields. Other features include photographs and useful sidebars that feature books, websites, fun facts about the field, and other helpful information. Seller Inventory # FLT9780974525198
