An Investigation of Job Satisfaction and Female Sports Journalists

An Investigation of Job Satisfaction and Female Sports Journalists The purpose of this study was to provide a theoretical foundation to enhance and enrich the understanding of female sport journalists and their level of job satisfaction. In this research we sought to determine satisfaction with six distinct areas of employment by using two of the most often used survey instruments (Job Descriptive Index and Job In General) that measure job satisfaction. A total of 78 surveys were completed by members of the Association for Women in Sports Media who were identified as full-time employees of daily newspapers. Although the journalists indicated overall satisfaction with their employment, pay, supervision, coworkers, and type of work, they were dissatisfied with their promotional opportunities. Significant differences were also found by making demographic comparisons. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Sex Roles Springer Journals

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to provide a theoretical foundation to enhance and enrich the understanding of female sport journalists and their level of job satisfaction. In this research we sought to determine satisfaction with six distinct areas of employment by using two of the most often used survey instruments (Job Descriptive Index and Job In General) that measure job satisfaction. A total of 78 surveys were completed by members of the Association for Women in Sports Media who were identified as full-time employees of daily newspapers. Although the journalists indicated overall satisfaction with their employment, pay, supervision, coworkers, and type of work, they were dissatisfied with their promotional opportunities. Significant differences were also found by making demographic comparisons.
