A good engineer can be either a woman or a man

Out of habit, some people still talk about “men’s jobs” and “women’s jobs”. But how do things actually work in real life? As we know, many women even work as astronauts. That’s why this day and age, no one should seriously believe that a woman doesn’t have what it takes to be an engineer. In fact, it was established long ago that a person’s skills and knowledge do not depend on their gender.

Let’s see what happened to engineer Maria.

An employer is looking for a new engineer to join their company. Many good engineers are interested in the job. One jobseeker, however, has particularly good qualities. Her name is Maria. Maria has worked as an engineer for a long time. She has a good education. She also has excellent skills and a wealth of experience. Maria only has one weakness in the employer’s opinion: Maria is not a man. The employer simply doesn’t believe that a woman can be a good engineer. He doesn’t even invite Maria to a job interview.

How can this be solved?

Job skills and experience do not depend on whether someone is a woman or a man. A woman can be a good engineer. A man can be a good nursery school teacher. In this case, Maria would be the best applicant. The employer should have chosen her.

Maria soon applied for another job. This employer knew how to appreciate Maria. Maria was hired right away. Now everyone is happy, both Maria and her new boss.

When choosing an employee, employers cannot judge people on the basis of whether they are male or female. Only the person’s skills, experience, education and knowledge are important.
