I just find assumptions we all make (I also assumed it was a man in my head) worth noting. I certainly do not care to be this over-confident, nor appreciate those who are, no matter their gender. But I do hope times are changing. These types of expectations make coming into a new position more difficult. When people have a way they expect you to be, if you don’t’ fill it, there is automatic dislike or frustration. If we all could assume less about someone based solely on their gender (and perhaps more on how they write their cover letters) the job search and new work environment would be less treacherous.
