Furlong, Andy; Biggart, Andy – Journal of Education and Work, 1999
A longitudinal study assessed the impact of gender, social class, and location on the development of occupational aspirations and expectations of 13- to 16-year olds. Findings suggest that area and social class have an impact on academic attainments and that efforts to broaden occupational horizons must begin prior to secondary school. (Author/JOW)

Glover, Judith; Fielding, Jane – Journal of Education and Work, 1999
Analysis of British national data sets shows that, although women's representation in the sciences increased, occupational outcomes differ for men and women. Women are much more likely to be underemployed and are overrepresented in teaching. Labor-market policies, as well as education policies, need attention. (Author/JOW)

Interviews with 150 working and 50 nonworking secondary and postsecondary students in Britain found that, although financial need was an initial motivation, working becomes habitual and normative. Most learn to adjust to work and study demands. Work enables the acquisition of transferable interpersonal skills, even in poorly rewarded jobs. (SK)
