Better Jobs with Companies that Care

Jan. 10th 2017

In the words of Oprah, "a new day is on the horizon"- and we couldn't agree more! It's been far too long since we've been able to write a newsletter fueled by positive vibes, and we're grateful to have started the year on such a high note both here at PowerToFly and as women worldwide. Don't lose this momentum- there are plenty of ways to ride the high we're all experiencing through the cold winter months ahead. Make an effort and try messaging at least one woman from our platform using the PowerToFly Networks tool! Connecting with women who also demand a change in the world will not only help to inspire you, but it could potentially give you the knowledge you need to take your career to the next level. We can't wait to hear about the amazing things you're doing in the wake of these exciting events, and we hope you share your success with us via Networks or our Facebook Group so we can celebrate with you!
