Women's eNews looks at women entering the workforce

In the April 7 Women’s eNews, the article, “Young Women Face Culture Shock in First Jobs,” looks at the transition that many women make from school to work. Some women feel that it is unclear how to interact with a manager or mentor. Young women face challenges when their managers aren’t eager to teach and train on the job.

The survey found that, “women with informal mentors reported a greater number of promotions and higher promotion rates than those without mentors.”
