Better Jobs With Companies That Care
Dec. 6, 2017
With 2017 coming to a close, it doesn't seem possible that more scandals could erupt surrounding women- but it's happening. There's a new controversy brewing on the daily, and now with CES, the largest technology show in the world omitting female keynote speakers from it's program, we're taking three steps back instead of one giant leap forward. Thankfully, we're out to change that. We're filling our blog and your inboxes with stories of truly inspiring women, like Emily Jones, the first female engineer on her team at Zapier, and calling out companies like LinkedIn who completely neglected to include a photo of an African American in its diversity report (uh… what?!). 2018 is going to be a pivotal year for women- and it's time for us to take our seat at the table, or in Meghan Markel's words, "Where a seat isn't available, well you know what? Then we need to create our own table". Create your own table, or find a seat at a table with a company that cares here.
FEATURED COMPANY THAT CARES: KARAT
Karat was founded on the premise that the interview process is the gateway to innovation. And who better to innovate in hiring engineers for tech companies than actual engineers?

On-the-job training, off-site retreats and a chance to really help talented people from all walks of life round out the reasons why Karat is a company that cares for sure.

Dorra Bouchiha can remember the exact moment she realized she wasn't in control of her own career.
It was summer 2018, and she was sitting at work, watching a presentation by one of her then-employer's new leaders. The presenter was talking about personal growth and showed the room a slide of two images side by side.
Growing Your Career in Technical Support: 4 Tips for Getting Hired at Elastic from Support Director Heidi Sager
Heidi Sager loves math, but she also loves working with people.
She always has, which is why she enjoyed her part-time job working at the IT department of the University of Colorado while she was studying electrical engineering. (She'd started in computer science, but explains that it "wasn't for her" and switched her major.) She helped students and professors with word processors, basic programming, and software checkout, and took a full-time job after graduation as a UNIX system administrator.
Working at Relativity—the global tech company that equips legal and compliance professionals with a powerful data-organizing and discovery platform—looked different in 2020.
