Women make better career decisions

Men are leaving their career choices to chance and not using enough “solid information”, according to a new study.

Workplace psychologists OPP found 24% of men rely on luck when making their career choices compared to 20% of women, and 26% of men admit opportunism is the most important factors, compared to 19% of women.

Dr Robert McHenry, chief executive of OPP, says: “These figures show a significant and consistent divergence in approach. Common sense dictates that leaving the course of one’s career to luck or convenience is a dangerous path to choose, but a startling amount of men seem comfortable with this.”
