Abstract

This research examined correlates of three career priority patterns – career‐primary, modified career‐family, and career‐family – among 218 managerial and professional women in Bulgaria. Data were collected using questionnaires completed anonymously. It attempted to replicate similar research conducted in Canada. Although career‐family women worked fewer hours per week, and were less involved with their jobs than were career‐primary women, many of the differences observed in the Canadian sample were absent in the Bulgarian sample. Offers possible explanations for the differences in the two studies.

Abstract

Data from a 1989 survey of over 600 middle‐level managers in a large Canadian corporation were analysed to examine the characteristics of jobs held by career‐family and career‐primary men and women. Hypotheses were developed based on human capital theory, statistical discrimination theory, and gender role congruence theory. Examining career outcomes suggested that participation in household labour had a significantly more negative association with men's hierarchical level than with women's. Implications for theory and suggestions for research are discussed.
