Factors that Influence Women's Choices to Work in the Trades.
Greene, Cherry K.; Stitt-Gohdes, Wanda L.
Journal of Career Development, v23 n4 p265-78 Sum 1997
Interviews with 10 women employed in trades revealed four significant factors in the choice of nontraditional occupations: perceived innate ability, strong sense of self, desire for independence, and role models, especially family. Formal career education/counseling was not a factor. Contrary to previous studies, only 3 of the 10 were firstborn or only children. (SK)
