Women in Nontraditional Careers


NTO: nontraditional occupations

Nontraditional careers (sometimes also called nontraditional occupations or NTOs) are those in which women make up less than 25 percent of the workforce. The pay, benefits and job satisfaction can be much higher than in traditionally female occupations.
