Researchers examined the job outcomes of men and women who recently graduated from STEM majors. The results demonstrated that women experienced more difficulties in finding a job, received fewer job offers, were less likely to find a job consistent with their education, and earned less money than men. In comparison to men, women were also less likely to attribute their success to stereotypically male characteristics and more likely to attribute their success to stereotypically female characteristics such as interpersonal skills. Moreover, women were less likely than men to perceive agency‐affording job characteristics (e.g., salary) as decisive features when making a decision about a job.
