PowerToFly was thrilled to partner with Casper, the groundbreaking company revolutionizing the way we think about sleep, to present an evening for women in engineering on November 14th.
As our guests arrived, they had plenty of time to network with their peers and members of the Casper team over cocktails and bites before the event officially kicked off with a welcome address by Casper's Chief People Officer Elizabeth Wolfson. Next up, our guests were given a real treat as they watched a product demo conducted by none other than Casper's Co-Founder and Chief Product Officer Jeff Chapin.
When Jeff concluded, it was time for a panel discussion, moderated by PowerToFly's Amy Trappey, featuring two of Casper's impressive women tech leaders, Chief Experience Officer Eleanor Morgan and Design Strategy Director Rachel Robinette, along one amazing male ally, Vice President - Industrial Design Rhys Newman. Our panel not only answered Amy's questions on their careers and journeys at Casper but were more than happy to take questions from our enthusiastic audience too.
As the panel wrapped up, the evening concluded with more free networking time which provided our attendees more opportunities to ask the panel (and other Casper employees) their burning questions. Before the night came to a close, Casper had one more surprise for everyone as they raffled off one of their acclaimed mattresses to a lucky audience member.
Casper is hiring! They believes that better sleep makes for better living. Their competitive benefits include company equity, a comprehensive 401(k) program, fitness stipends, an open vacation policy, catered lunches and a gifted bed set.

It's pretty common in your 20s and 30s to feel like you're treading water financially – dealing with the immediate bills and expenses and not thinking too far beyond the next year or two. But this is the ideal time to think about the financial objectives you want to achieve. The best rewards don't come without risks, and there's no better time to start setting goals and taking chances.
In an interview, it's hard to anticipate what questions an interviewer will ask, but there is one that they are guaranteed to ask every single time (and it may be the most important question of the interview): "Do you have any questions for me?"
As we approach the end of 2019, there's no better time to reflect on the past year and prepare for 2020. This is especially true if you work from home: from tax write-offs to redesigning your home office to maximizing productivity, there's a lot you can do to make 2020 your most efficient year yet.
When you're a student, having a meaningful summer internship lead to a full-time offer after graduation is typically a "best-case scenario."
But what if you could intern at a remote-reliant, flexible company over the summer (and get the chance to talk about your work at a major conference!) and then continue working part-time while you study?
