Researchers and theorists disagree about the place of individual choice in the process of occupational 24 KARRIE ANN SNYDER segregation. For example, those who stress human capital models may focus more on how men are drawn to male-dominated occupations with greater financial returns, while others have stressed how gender socialization structures gender-appropriate job choices (see Jacobs, 1989). Additionally, while some researchers examine how forces of discrimination and preferential treatment (such as old boy’s networks and the glass ceiling) largely determine an individual’s available opportunities, others have focused more on how individual choices lead men and women to sexsegregated jobs such as the idea that women choose less demanding jobs or career paths because of their desire for children and family.

This assumption is bolstered by academic research showing that young people often have little idea what jobs entail – even jobs that young people are interested in pursuing as adults (Csikszentmihalyi & Schneider, 2000). But this insider information is particularly important for men because the messages men do receive are highly gendered including that nurses are subservient, female assistants to (male) doctors. The point here is not that one female-dominated job leads to another one (and in fact Jacobs would point out that the sex composition of a job does not predict the next) or that all men in these lower-level health-care jobs become nurses, but rather how a job exposure in a female-dominated field opens up some men to another set of viable options by seeing the inner workings of a female-dominated job – the opportunities, the technical side, and the skill needed.
