Julie ChenJulie Chen is a woman of many hats. She is the host of the popular CBS show Big Brother, a host on The Talk, a respected journalist, a well-known TV anchor and she is a mother.

Julie Chen has more than one job

With the upcoming Big Brother premiere, Julie Chen is getting ready, (once again) for an epic season of the reality show competition.

Fans enjoy the way she is able to separate the two shows while still offering her unique style and focus.

Can you name a male host who is on more than one TV show currently on the tube? A name probably popped right into your mind immediately. Plus the guys probably get plenty of kudos for being so busy. It’s not the same for women though and Julie Chen is leading the way in showing this can change.

Julie Chen is a perfect example of what women need to do to be outstanding in more than one job or opportunity and for that reason Chen is the latest woman highlighted in the Women Empowerment TV series.

Why only one job? Careers for women can be multifaceted

The typical stereotypes pushed on women years ago is that they could only do one thing. Impressing upon them to be satisfied just to be part of the workforce – this is no longer the case.

Women in today’s world face many challenges in the workforce. Frankly, there is a lingering idea that once a woman finds a profession that fits, she should be satisfied that this is the place she belongs her entire lifetime. The one job to one women equation is so ridiculously outdated. It’s almost as if people can’t believe women can multi-task on a professional level. News flash: women are excellent multi-taskers.
