  • 3. According to the latest Today’s Professional Woman Report, career satisfaction and success are not just end goals, they’re moving targets for both men and women.
  • 4. Inspired by the conversations in Connect: Professional Women’s Network, the latest survey looks at career concerns, professional progress and happiness.
  • 5. Men and women in every age group report that the happiest point in their careers was just a few years in the past.
  • 6. WHEN PROFESSIONALS SAY THEIR HAPPIEST AGE WAS: Gen. Y 28 Adults 35–44 35 Adults 45–54 42 Adults 55+ 49
  • 7. “My proudest moments were when I was awarded two commendation medals from the California Military Department. There is nothing more satisfying than knowing you did your best and that your efforts had a positive impact.”  MeShawn Tajalle Hunt, Owner at 2 Tropical Gals
  • 8. When professionals think they’ll peak in their career varies significantly by generation.
  • 9. Professionals anticipate their “peak” further ahead as they move from one generation to the next.
  • 10. THE AGE PROFESSIONALS EXPECT TO HIT THEIR PEAK: Gen. Y 43 Adults 35–44 50 Adults 45–54 56 Adults 55+ 62
  • 11. Most professionals associate career satisfaction with a good salary, but the importance of salary varies between genders and generations as well.
  • 12. Men are more likely than women to equate career satisfaction with a “good salary” (58% vs. 52%), while women ranked salary as equally important to doing what they love and being challenged.
  • 13. Salary also becomes less important to professionals as they age: Respondents 55+ were significantly more likely to equate career satisfaction with “doing what I love.”
  • 14. “Money, prestige and social status are all nice, but they are not what make a successful career. You have to feel fulfilled, constantly striving and learning.” Pamela Rogers, Employment Coach

  • 17. “WHEN MY BOSS ASKED ‘WHY DO YOU DESERVE MORE?’ I WAS READY! I deserved more because I had cut cost for the company that tripled what I wanted in a raise. I deserved more because I worked 16 hours a day and never complained. I deserved it because I earned it. WHEN YOU EARN IT, ASK FOR IT! Chances are you are too valuable for them to let go.” Rachel Goodwin-Juby, Owner at Emergency 911 Equipment
