This is an interesting topic that I just thought I should write about. I am an IT- Networking graduate; I’m currently in a learnership program at Gijima and I have become conscious that most of the students here are guys and it brought to my attention that this industry is dominated by males.
I’m just writing this to encourage young black ladies that are in the similar position as I am, whether you’re into Construction or at the Military, Machinery Engineering or you’re just like me into Information technology, know that woman are beginning to pour into management and skilled profession. Never doubt your skills or your knowledge.
Gone are the days where women were known to be at home, in the kitchen and baking stuffs. We might not be physically strong as men but when it comes to running and delegating we certainly are doing a great job!
In fact women are now directing in some of the jobs that used to belong to men only. In the beginning it’s always inflexible to get a job let alone a job that is male-dominate simply because you are a woman.
Sometimes you have to make a statement to be recognized and not to be confused to the P.A when you’re out of the office on site, perhaps setting up a network for a company or whatever the case may be. As women we really have to go above and beyond to prove your value, whereas men get that automatically.
Women being recognized
Being a woman in today’s competitive job market can be a challenge particularly if you’re hoping to start your career in a traditionally male-dominated arena. Many women have successfully navigated into typical male-dominated arenas.
Personally I would like to encourage those that are dominating in a male field to keep on keeping on, don’t look down on yourself no matter how hard it gets. You were called for this and that is why you are occupying that position.This is also a note to self.
