Characterizations of Computing Careers: Students and Professionals Disagree.
Clarke, Valerie A.; Teague, G. Joy
Computers & Education, v26 n4 p241-46 May 1996
Researchers studying attitudes toward computer careers interviewed 68 students in a university computer science course, 33 secondary school girls, and 19 women working professionally in computer-based careers. Both groups of students tended to stereotype computer-related careers as menial, isolating, and overly technical; this view differed sharply from positive attributes highlighted by the professionals.
