Money v Job Satisfaction 16 June 2009
Pay slip
What should girls look for when choosing a career?

Despite the fact that girls are outperforming boys academically, they still earn less. Some of the disparity may be down to the fact that women tend to choose a job for satisfaction rather than income, but long term impact of poor careers advice can be profound. So should we be giving girls more information - before they commit to a career path - about how much they can expect to earn? To discuss the issues, Jane is joined by Dr Rachel Mulvey, Associate Dean of the Department of Psychology at the University of East London  and Judith Leary-Joyce,  Chief Executive of Great Companies Consulting and author of 'The Psychology of Success'.
