Message Us Directly For Scoops On Employers + Jobs
That's right. You can now message me directly (I'm on the right in the leather jacket) and the rest of our PowerToFly executive team, including my CoFounder and CEO Milena, by using PowerToFly Networks, a new feature we introduced this month. You need a PowerToFly talent profile to enable this feature - it takes two seconds to make one via the PowerToFly homepage.
More specifically, our new Networking tool allows you to:
- Connect with women working at companies you are interested in, and get inside information on that company's interview process, benefits, culture, and more
- Find coaches and mentors who want to elevate women like you
- Simply meet women who share your interests
And now, thanks to a feature update from our CTO, Ana Martinez, who you can also message directly, we have enabled every person on the platform to be able to privately chat with us. All you need to do is to click on the "Connections" drop down in your navigation window and then go to the "Manage" tab - see the screen grab below. Message any of us and we'll get back to you ASAP.
Pro Tip: Research quickly who you are messaging by reading our bios. For information about open positions, Rachel Valdez our Chief Talent Officer, is your best bet!
Ah, the dreaded PIP.
Performance improvement plans (PIPs) can feel scary. They have a (not entirely unearned) reputation for being the first step on the road to an eventual firing. And sometimes managers do implement PIPs solely to appease HR by ensuring that they made every last effort to make a given employee successful before terminating that employee.
We recently chatted with Megan Hansen, VP of People at Smartsheet, who oversee the employee lifecycle from Talent Acquisition to Alumni support.

The world has changed in the past few weeks.

Preparing for the Unexpected: How Maria Fava Found Her Confidence as a Bicultural, Bilingual Woman at T. Rowe Price
Born in Mexico City and raised in Guadalajara, Maria Fava never would have predicted that she'd have a career in financial services. And certainly not in Maryland.
Over two decades ago, when Maria moved to the U.S. to study psychology at the University of Texas at Arlington, she'd planned on moving back to Mexico to study law after graduation. Instead, she fell in love with an unassuming Italian-American her senior year. She married him and moved to Maryland, his home state.
When the pandemic began in spring and her friends (and fellow Carnegie Mellon master's students) started to find out that their offers for summer internships were canceled, Mai Sha held her breath.
