Passion vs. Profit: Ladies, It’s Time to Get What You’re Worth Today

There are many reports of how women and men differ when it comes to asking for what they deserve in the job market, and it’s often said that we women accept less than what we’re worth. But why?

Some might say we’re simply less aggressive than men when it comes to negotiating or making the ask, or we don’t even know the tangible value of our skills.

One NPR reporter brings up a different side of this coin by exploring the link between our choices in major or skill-building with our career choices. Lisa Chow recalls interviewing Georgetown University economist Anthony Carnevale on the subject and finding that women are “overrepresented among majors that don’t pay very well (psychology, art, comparative literature) and underrepresented in lots of lucrative majors (most fields in engineering).” She continues to report that even when women choose high-paying majors, they often don’t choose high-paying jobs.
