Nontraditional Careers for Women and Men
Women are making great strides regarding gender equality and equal pay in the workplace. But there are many high-paying, fast-growing fields that young women still may not be aware of as
exciting career options.

In the book, Nontraditional Careers for Women and Men, it shares 22 nontraditional careers for women, including pilots.

Two female ALPA pilots provided interviews inside the book.

Capt. Nathalie Hacken (ASA) states, "It is a great career for the independent, driven woman. It requires patience, drive, and determination. If you enjoy challenges, traveling, and working with many different people in an always fluid and changing environment, then you would enjoy this line of work." 

"My job is always changing--the weather, my routes, the passengers. Every day is different," said First Officer Annmarie Savitiski (DAL).
