What’s the Perfect Age to Start Your Career? It’s Not What You Think, According to a Stanford Psychologist

(Source: www.inc.com)

In the current system, people get an entry level job right after college or other training, usually when they’re between 20 and 25. Until recently, that was also the age range during which they were most likely to be starting a family. The average age to have a first child in the US has been rising. It’s now around 30 for men and around 28 for women. There are many reasons for this development, including the growing burden of student debt. But another factor may be the long hours and intense dedication you often need to put in when starting out in a career. It’s tough to make that work when you’re doing 2 am feedings. Even those who don’t start having children till their early 30s should have those children in school by the time they’re 40.
