Salary differences between men and women are evident from the start. Even with identical qualifications, female graduates generally enter professional life on lower pay scales than their male peers.
At entry level, salary differences amount to 8% and salary discrimination to 7%. The salaries of male graduates subsequently rise even more quickly and the gap widens during the initial years. An analysis of salaries based on education levels shows that salary differences among university graduates are the highest.
It is therefore essential that female graduates are well prepared for salary talks.
