Better Jobs With Companies that Care

Nov. 15 2017

If you have been avoiding your calendar (or just any and all things holiday), we hate to break it to you: next week marks the beginning of the holiday season. While we can't wait for turkey, crowded malls, and explaining to Grandma Jane for the upteenth time what we do for a living, let's get ourselves in a good mental state by taking some "me time". Whether that means going to the gym, taking a cool new class, or starting Black Edge (a book highly recommended by our president and cofounder Katharine Zaleski), we all deserve a little selfishness before the season of giving begins! Are you starting a cool new project this holiday season? Stay connected with us through the craziness and join our Facebook group- we'd love to hear from you!

How These Companies Are Celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

According to a recent study, anti-Asian hate crimes have risen 150% since the pandemic started. But these acts of violence are not new — they are part of a much larger history of anti-Asian racism and violence in the U.S.

That makes celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month (which was named a month-long celebration in May by Congress in 1992 "to coincide with two important milestones in Asian/Pacific American history: the arrival in the United States of the first Japanese immigrants on May 7, 1843 and contributions of Chinese workers to the building of the transcontinental railroad, completed May 10, 1869") this year all the more important.

The Outlook That Helps CSL’s Paula Manchester Invest in Herself and Her Team

"That's a global indictment," she says. "'I'm not good at math' implies that you don't have the ability to nurture that muscle. And then I'd ask what kind of math? There's a lot to math."

Now in her current role as an Engineering Manager at payment platform Afterpay, Emma continues to find ways to manage her personal and professional growth, and her family's well-being.

5 Things All Product Managers Should Do for Their Engineers (And Vice Versa)

Tips from SeatGeek's Anuja Chavan

When Anuja Chaven turns on a fan in her house in Jersey City, she can't help but think about how every piece of it works.

"There are an extensive amount of things that have to go perfectly at the same time," says the former engineer (and current product manager at live event ticketing platform SeatGeek).
