Bloomberg Law recently published an article featuring Kabrina Chang, Clinical Associate Professor of Markets, Public Policy, and Law on women’s hesitation compared to men to apply for jobs receiving higher salaries despite being qualified for the positions.
It has been reported by software company iCIMS that women are less likely than men to apply for jobs with salaries over $100,000 if they do not meet all the qualifications, compared to their male counterparts, who apply for jobs more quickly even without meeting all the criteria. iCIMS’s director of data insights, Rhea Moss, said that men were much more likely to jump back into job-hunting after COVID-19 struck in 2020.
Who knows how many more high-quality women are out there who are not applying for a variety of reasons” Kabrina stated.
Studies have also shown that women are also more likely to accept jobs quicker than men, rather than exploring other opportunities that may come their way.
