Gender equality is a controversial topic that many agree with, but it seems to have bypassed the education system. Society today has uplifted the boy's education, and that tends to neglect that of the girl. It's no wonder around 132 million girls globally do not go to school. Other barriers to the education of girls include poverty, gender-based ****, and child marriages. That's why if you're fortunate enough to get a chance at education as a woman, make good use of it. If you're in college trying to figure out your career path, you have a long line of options to choose from. As a woman, you probably will be multitasking between work and life, but finding that balance isn't as hard as it may seem. Here are some top choices that you can consider.
The IT world is fast blossoming into a thriving venture; hence, taking up a course in the IT sector would be worthwhile. Women can enroll for certificate or degree courses in informational technology, computer science, or cybersecurity. While at it, you will get to learn the zeros and ones of coding (literally) and get to be among the lucky few who have experience in the ever-demanding coding market. If you're still apprehensive about it, look at Girls Who Code founder Reshma Saujani. Information Technology is a broad field, with other options including designing applications and software, gaming, smartphones, and incorporating IT solutions for corporations. Working on IT can be quite exhilarating and easy if you know what you're doing. Well, there's also good pay!
Being female comes with its advantages; you have a unique ability to solve problems.
You will agree that many women are good listeners, observers, and communicators, all of which are critical skills to becoming a great psychologist. A psychologist's work entails listening to people's problems, including their deepest and scarring ones, and providing solutions. No one listens more, empathizes more, and strives to provide workable solutions more than a woman would. That's why psychology would be a great fit for you. Venturing into psychology will let you help many people struggling with personal or family problems. Since women are known to be emotional creatures, you can bet that your heart will ever be at peace after helping a soul. If you get to advance your career as a psychologist, you stand a chance to earn many bucks (especially with the hourly rate in play).
If you're like most women, you've probably taken up too much time designing the look of your current or future home. From choosing the perfect tiles to blending your curtains with the furniture, it takes a keen eye to make a house look alluring. Having the talent to turn a dull space into something gorgeous doesn't come easy, and you shouldn't take that for granted. Why not help others get beautiful spaces as well and earn some bucks in the process?
You can enroll in an interior design school, with courses running between two and three years before you take the national examination. If you're a creative woman, detailed-focused, and most of all are organized, think interior design. The career will also let you pick the clients you want to work with and set a working schedule that suits you.
To Sum It Up
Education is the right stepping stone for girls today to transition into successful career women. As such, you should pay close attention to the path you take when it comes to school. It is possible for you as a woman to be successful in both your career and personal life. It all depends on your drive.
