Women are doing it easier

WOMEN in executive management roles earning more than $65,000 a year find work 25 per cent faster than their male counterparts on similar salaries according to a recent Morgan & Banks survey.

The survey of 1,000 people found the average time taken by women to regain employment after redundancy was 8.9 weeks compared to men who took an average of 12.1 weeks.

Morgan & Banks’ John Banks said women were often seen as more organised in their job hunting activities and more polished networkers.

“This is an obvious advantage, considering more than 30 per cent of people pick up their next job via word of mouth,” Mr Banks said.

“Females are also less rigid in their demands of potential employers. They are generally more focussed than males and they make decisions faster.

“They are quicker to get over the grieving of job loss and therefore get going sooner.

“They also have a methodical approach to the job search and do not rely on the old boys’ network,” he said.
