60 Years Later, Women’s Most Common Job Hasn’t Changed (CNN Money)

A secretary or administrative assistant is still the most common job for women, as it was in the 1950s, according to CNN Money. In the 2010 U.S. Census, 4 million employees were secretaries, and 96% of them were women.

The next four most common jobs for women in 2010 were cashier, elementary or middle school teacher, nurse and nursing aid. In 1950, they were bank teller, sales clerk, private household worker and teacher.
