Pleased to have been able to guest blog on Placer’s website on how doing work experience is the most important thing you will do!
Take a look 🙂
It’s crazy that in 2018, women are still considerably underpaid for the same jobs that men get paid for.
What confuses me, is that governments and companies are crying out for more women in business, STEM and to create a diverse business community. But why would women want to go into any work, when they know they are going to be patronisingly paid less.
My opinion in all of this is not that I should be paid more than a man, nor chosen for a job over a man, but just to simply be treated equally.
Glassdoor compiled their top 25 jobs in the UK for 2018, and 7 out of those 25 jobs are IT related!
From business analysis to mobile developer, there is no other sector that holds that many jobs in the top 25. It is more than likely that the number will grow in years to come and looking at the other jobs on the list, you cannot complete any of them without at least basic computer tools and applications.
IT is more than just the stereotypical job and you can apply other skills to it, so if you are trying to decide what to get into, why not aim for a top job?
