Women are moving to non-traditional avenues and excelling in them

Times have changed; what was true at the workplace a few years ago does not hold ground anymore. Traditionally men took up high-pressure jobs, including those involving long working hours and frequent travelling. If survey findings are to be relied upon, women employees too are ready to take up such jobs. A survey conducted by recruitment consultancy firm, CareerBuilder.com, reveals that two-third of women employees in India are now open to travelling as part of their job and another 33 per cent actually prefer a ‘high pressure-high rewards' work environment. The study further found that 82 per cent of women employees agreed that their families were supportive of their career ambitions, while 60 per cent felt that marriage would not come in the way of their career progression.
