Better Jobs with Companies That Care About Women
August 2, 2017
Sometimes it's really difficult to know your worth, what you excel at and how the two fit together. We can't claim to have a magic bullet or potion on this matter, but - we know the women of the PowerToFly community are highly sought after. How do we know this? From the feedback we get from companies EVERY day. Not sometimes, not once a week, but literally every day. They're looking for you, they want you and they are striving to create inclusive environments for you to thrive in. Don't doubt your worth.
Apple, the company that makes the very products you probably use every day, is hiring. When it comes to their practices and benefits, Apple exemplifies what we look for in companies that care. They hire inclusively, and they do more than believe in pay equity — they've actually achieved it: Women earn one dollar for every dollar male employees earn in the United States for similar roles and performance. And whether it's maternity leave, new parent leave, adoption assistance, backup care, student loan refinancing, or product discounts, Apple has benefits that fit your lifestyle and then some.

Jasmine Harvey is pursuing her MBA while working full-time as a buyer for Viasat, a global communications and satellite internet company.
