Job Mobility of Men and Women Psychologists in the Southeast.
Kimmel, Ellen B.
This study investigates job mobility of men and women psychologists in the southeast. The sample consisted of 300 male and female regular members of the Southeastern Psychological Association whose names were taken from the 1972 membership list. Each person in the sample was sent a one-page questionnaire which asked for the date of their doctorate or terminal degree, the area of specialization within psychology and for a chronological listing of all the jobs held since the terminal degree was obtained. There was a 47% return, with 72 females responding and 74 of the males. Results indicated: (1) more men had the doctorate degree than women; (2) while both sexes specialized in an applied area more often than a basic area, this differential tendency was greater for women; (3) women were more often employed by agencies than men; (4) the mobility of men and women was not significantly different; (5) the level of highest position reported differed by sex. Men achieved the rank of full professor more often than women; and (6) men more often than women reported changing jobs in order to achieve professional advancement, or because of job dissatisfaction.
