Men age 18 to 49 value their careers the most, according to a new Gallup poll. The results found that 69 percent of them said they considered advancing in their career either extremely or very important. Sixty-five percent of women in the same age range agreed. Men and women in their 50s or older however are not as similar. Thirty-seven percent of men 50 or older said advancing their careers was important to them, compared to just 24 percent of women of the same age. The survey also found that both 57 percent of college graduates and 57 percent of blue collar workers employed full or part time considered career advancement important.
