I’m always fascinated by listening to people talk about what drives them. I have plenty of male and female friends, all in entirely different fields and holding different statuses in their industries. I have friends who are public school teachers, and friends who come up with curriculums for prestigious universities. I have friends who come up with marketing plans for apps and friends who stay up all night designing those apps. Regardless of the job, there have been some themes I’ve found to be true in how men versus women think about their careers. I even have to admit that I absolutely live up to many of those themes. They aren’t right or wrong—they’re just different. It could be very helpful for men and women to understand where the other comes from when it comes to careers and business since we do, after all, work together. Here are the different career pressures men and women feel.
