Better Jobs with Companies That Care About Women – July 26, 2017
Let's talk about recognition for a sec, shall we? As women, positive recognition is tough to come by. Sure, maybe Mrs. Fields called you out that one time in the fourth grade for making the BEST diorama (thanks for the help, Mom!), but since then? Virtual crickets. Professionally-speaking, it really takes a special company who's brave enough to recognize based on merit as opposed to….other stuff. Or even give you the chance to be put in a position to be recognized at all. But these are the special companies we work with everyday – ourselves included! Hit us up (firstname.lastname@example.org), hit them up, and read on below. You're welcome.
