Unmarried Young Women with No Children Earn More than Men

This ABCNews video shows women who are under 30, unmarried, with no children, earn an average of 8% more than their counterpart. In New York City, young women make 17% more. This could be explained by the fact that there are more female than male college graduates, with a ratio of 3:2. A college graduate earns almost $30,000 more than a high school graduate. I believe this group of young female professionals is also more flexible in terms of work, work hours, and locations (i.e. travelling). Being flexible is also very important in career success. What do you think?

  1. I agree that flexibility is crucial to a successful career. In addition to time and location, I think flexibility could also mean allowing yourself some room to change positions within your career. For example, I hope to someday work as a Dietitian in a large food company to help consumers make better food choices. I understand that once I graduate from school, I will definitely not go directly into the food industry. I will probably start in a hospital or community setting and work my way up. It is with time and networks that we ultimately find out what is right for ourselves. Even though college students do work hard in their undergraduate years in hopes of getting that dream job, we must understand that we will not start at the very top right out of school.

Do you know where your prospects hang out during the #DeleteFacebook movement?

Facebook used to the cool place where everybody hangs out. Not long ago, Facebook was ranked the most visited website in the world , and the website where Americans spent the most time. Facebook page then became the most popular social media platform for business-to-consumer communications among various types of organizations. In recent years, however, Facebook faced several backlashes toward the platform’s data privacy practices and its CEO. Facebook is experiencing some challenges of maintaining its popularity among internet users, some of whom even call for a #DeleteFacebook movement . I myself, also notice a shift in my teenaged students’ interest in Facebook, even before the #DeleteFacebook backlash. So, if Facebook is no longer the cool place where everybody hangs out, which social media platforms can we use to communicate with our prospective consumers?
