How often would you switch careers?

Men and women seem to approach career changes differently, if new research from the London Business School is anything to go by.

A survey at the School’s annual Women in Business Conference found that the majority of women (59% of the 2,000 surveyed) expect to have four or more total career changes in the course of their working lives - more than most men.

“Men change rapidly and then settle down to career stability; women are more liable to keep moving throughout their careers,” said Nigel Nicholson, Professor of Organisational Behaviour at London Business School.

“Different attitudes to careers accompany this pattern,” he explained. “Men are goal-seeking, women are value-driven. Hence men find, invent and sometimes move targets, to ensure they are always thrusting forward towards an end purpose. Women are more apt to consider at any point, how does this fit with who I am and how I feel? Hence they are more liable to switch.”

Other reasons put forward include a perceived reduction in loyalty to any one company, and the fact that later retirement means that men and women will both need to work longer.
