Forbes published a report yesterday on the anomalous trend of milennial women (born between the mid 1970s to the early 2000s) who are suffering from career burnout by the age of 30.  They first breakdown the statistics of the corporate ladder: women comprise 53% of all corporate entry-level jobs, a percentage that tumbles to 37% for mid-management roles and 26% for vice presidents and senior managers, according to McKinsey research.  Men are twice as likely as women to advance at each career phase, and one reason Forbes speculates may be a major contributor to this is that women are less inclined to take decompression breaks throughout the day and over the course of years.  And for women, the landscape of the workplace is a completely different reality than it is for men.  Research has shown that since the beginning of their education, women have worked noticeably harder than men: “These women worked like crazy in school, and in college, and then they get into the workforce and they are exhausted,” says Melanie Shreffler of the youth marketing blog Ypulse.  The report goes on to take a closer look at the other factors that are contributing to so many women being confronted with career crises at such a young age, and you can read the entire feature article by visiting Forbes
