I plan to go into business, and everyone tells me I had great potential (from Harvard graduates who have succeed to life to my classmates, some of whom don’t even like me), but after doing some research tonight it seems like the industry is still male dominated. I don’t really mind if I’m the odd one out and not seen as a real threat, because I know I’ll prove them wrong, but I’m worried that because of my gender, will it be harder to get to the higher positions? For example, the C’s (CEO, CFO, etc.) even executive managers. I know by the time I reach that level I’d have worked in the industry a great deal of time, but will it be much harder? Will I not really be taken seriously?
Because although I have straight 90′s, I do have that "popular girl" look.,,
Most high management jobs are now being held by women. So, the only thing stopping you from succeeding is yourself now.
