Career + Interview Tips

Finally, A Networking Tool For Women To Share Advice + Real Company Info

Jan. 9th 2018

Just like mom used to say "you are the friends you keep", we are elevated by our networks.

We're busy women; we don't have time to attend multiple networking events each week or participate in online platforms where spam messages seem to be more prevalent than those from real people.

Which is why we've created PowerToFly Networks where you can:

  • 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
To get started make sure you have a PowerToFly profile set up. You can easily make one for free here.

How to network on PowerToFly:

Search for any keywords or location in the search bar.


Send a connection request to women you are interested in connecting with (a personal notes always helps).

That's it! You will receive an email once a message is responded to, but you can also check your inbox and pending messages under 'Manage Connections'.

So, what are you waiting for?! Start searching for women now and we'll catch you later on Networks. Feel free to even reach out to any member of the PowerToFly team directly!

Setting New Hires Up For Success

Speed up onboarding with these integrations for Slack

Below is an article originally written by PowerToFly Partner Slack, and published via Medium on June 7th, 2018. Go to Slack's page on PowerToFly to see their open positions and learn more.

While a well-equipped desk with a new laptop and a coffee mug might make for a nice introduction, it's how you prepare employees for their new position that matters most. "Faster onboarding means employees can more quickly do the jobs they were brought on to do," says a recent IDC research study, sponsored by Slack, that also finds that HR teams using Slack for employee onboarding are able to get people up to speed on their new jobs 24% faster.

Getting new hires fully briefed and trained up can be a lengthy process. By connecting various tools with Slack, you can run an effective and organized onboarding program that gives new employees immediate access to the tools and information they need to make a roaring head start.
