The best of the best are getting the job interviews and offers.
**Only a small few at each college can be the best of the best.
While our college engineering/stem classes are 40% women - we are seeing only 10% at internships and at job interviews being called in. I can still remember my daughter saying only 6 girls out of 60 mom.
I asked my daughter this very question:
If I get up in front of a classroom of high school girls (going for STEM) and tell them everything they will have to do during high school, the college application process and maintaining a high gpa in college, and what it takes to find an internship and the job interview process and the entire day written test whiteboard problems - what percentage of girls will wish to do this? She said I would scare them all away.
The real question that should be asked is why do we have significantly more females interested in engineering and science vs being interested in CS?
