careers Careers That Need More Women - Now Hiring  

21k views 10 items Follow Embed
If you need a job, read this: I’ve compiled a list of companies that are currently hiring, and crossed referenced them with non traditional careers in need of women. Typically, women are attracted to non traditional careers because they offer a higher starting salary and better career ladder than the average profession. Also included in this list are positions that are hard to fill, usually because of hard-to-find skill sets and/or high turn-over. To those of you ladies out there seeking employment, or even a career change, I hope this helps. Good luck! (This list was compiled on August 24, 2009, subject to change. Images from Wikipedia.)
