How Job Search Is Different for Women, with Jennifer Kass

Wed, 13 Oct 2021

The wage gap between men and women is well-known, but did you know that women also approach their job search very differently than their male counterparts? Women are more cautious, more hesitant to share their strengths, and generally ask for less money. Find Your Dream Job guest Jennifer Kass offers several ways women can change this approach, starting with creating a list of skills and achievements. Jennifer also suggests applying for jobs even if you don’t have 100% of the qualifications and negotiating the salary you’re worth.
