Journal of Education and Practice, v7 n5 p26-31 2016
Career development research has often explored gender differences in and development of career patterns. Women were traditionally sidelined from performing from full participation in society and have struggled for their civil rights and social freedoms by challenging the male-dominated social systems. In an age when women are now gaining strong footing in positions once dominated by only by male, it is imperative to assess how the career development of women fare. Thus, the researcher examined the career development patterns and values of women school administrators. The researcher found that women school administrators in the province of Capiz were highly motivated, have high self-esteem, have very strong spirituality, and possess very strong will power. They were also equipped with career development patterns skills that they applied on their position and in becoming successful. The researcher also found that they were able to successfully combine family and job, attaining high level of achievement. Despite marriage constraints, they were innovative, finding time for both family and work and with supportive family members that lessen the demands and burdens of their position. These women administrators also realized the importance of values on their career development patterns in providing them direction to their desired end. As successful school administrators, they made themselves "role model" for other professionals who aimed to become one in the future.
