Nontraditional Careers

Hennepin Technical College supports students in their efforts to pursue nontraditional careers. Defined by gender, nontraditional career fields are composed of 75% or more of members of the opposite sex. For example, a non-traditional career field for a woman employees three men for every woman. The opposite is true for men. All gender employment statistics are gathered from the US Department of Labor Statistics.
