More Women Seeking Jobs in IT, Finance and Telcos
A latest Everjobs Career report reveals that the younger generation of women in Sri Lanka’s workforce are defining career differently by increasingly pursuing job roles that in previous generations were dominated by men. According to the report, more female applicants actively seek jobs in the IT, telecommunication, finance, energy, utilities and healthcare industries.
The report assembled by monitoring the traffic on Everjobs.lk over the past five months suggests that female participation in Sri Lanka is rapidly increasing, especially in traditionally male-dominated industries.
Sascha Woelk, managing director of Everjobs Sri Lanka said, “It will always be employers, who need to make a deliberate effort to give women a fair chance to have the career that they aspire to. Looking at how closely gender parity is tied to GDP growth around the world, this effort will surely be of great value to Sri Lanka.”
