What are Non-Traditional Careers?
Non-Traditional careers are those careers that are generally filled by less than 25% of one gender. Examples of this would be men in nursing or women in engineering.
How Do I Know If a Non-Traditional Field Is Right For Me?
To find out if your interests, abilities, and economic needs match a specific type of career, do your research!
Visit the United States Department of Labor's Bureau of labor Statistics' Occupational Outlook Handbook to find information on careers that interest you. The site will explain the training and education needed, earnings, expected job prospects, what workers do on the job, and working conditions.
Why Choose a Non-Traditional Career?
It is important for individuals to consider a career based on their own interests, abilities, and needs. A person's gender should not be a determining factor in choosing a career path. If you choose a career field based solely on the idea that women and men are predisposed to being/doing a certain job, you are limiting your options.
Everyone has the right to work in a filed that provides a sense of personal satisfaction, pays family-supportive wages, and matches that individual's abilities and talents. Albuquerque Public Schools and Carl D. Perkins Grant encourage students to explore Non-Traditional career options.
There are advantages for both men and women to consider Non-Traditional Career choices.
