The job mobility of young white women is examined, using a continuous-time stochastic model. Analysis of NLS data on Young Women indicates that rates of women's job transitions within full-time employment are decreased by job rewards, socioeconomic status, and wages, and increased by IQ and age. A woman's education, however, does not have significant effects. The family constraints of being married and husband's income limit mobility. Shifts in and out of part-time employment are also common, and wages and young children are found to be significant factors in influencing changes to part-time jobs. Comparisons are made with previous findings for men.
