Quotation Mayrhofer, Wolfgang, Steyrer, Johannes, Chudzikowski, Katharina, Demel, Barbara, Reichel, Astrid, Schiffinger, Michael, Schneidhofer, Thomas, Strunk, Guido. 2009. The Magic Third Wave: Gender and Income - a Longitudinal Analysis of the Vienna Career Panel Project. Academy of Management, Chicago, Illinois, Vereinigte Staaten/USA, 7. - 11. August.




Careers by definition develop over time. At the end of most studies on careers, there is a call for longitudinal research because the fluid nature of careers requires collecting multiple waves of data, rather than relying on cross-sectional data. This symposium showcases the work of researchers who have successfully accomplished longitudinal research on careers and advanced the knowledge of patterns of careers over time and for diverse groups. Hurley-Hanson, Giannantonio and Sonnenfeld open the symposium with research from a unique study covering more than 40 years of HRIS data on factors that influence promotions over time for women and minorities. Schneer, Post, ogilvie, & Reitman discuss their 20-year managerial career path project findings on patterns of career success for men and women MBAs. Mayrhofer et al. present research on the Vienna Career Panel Project examining career trajectories to see how and when gender differences in career success arise. De Vos focuses on career transitions from school to work to see how changing career expectations impact evaluations of career success, and whether this differs for men and women. Goldberg and Zhang have multiple waves of data from new employees and their supervisors and examine how race and self-efficacy influence supervisor impressions, which, in turn, impact future supervisor impressions and employee performance assessments. The symposium will provide time for audience exploration of the methods and findings of the research through facilitated discussion and questions and answers.
