Unfortunately, being a female in a male-dominated industry can mean that you have to really fight to be heard, seen, or even noticed. You might even think it’s impossible to get a promotion since you might be the only female competing for the job. Luckily, there are many employers out there who really will notice the work you produce more so than just your gender. So, one tip to get your foot in the door is to put everything you have into your work production. Show them you are just as or even more so capable, qualified, and motivated as your male coworkers. Try letting your work speak for itself.
