Career and 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!

A Conversation With Women In Tech At Three Fast-Growing Startups

If you are a San Francisco-based woman and tech and you are interested in attending this event, please email hi@powertofly.com to be considered for an invitation.

PowerToFly is back in San Francisco for another exciting and transparent evening of cocktails and conversations featuring women tech leaders from Cloudflare, Forward and Philo.

The event will take place on Thursday, November 15th from 6pm to 8pm at ConnectionsSF, located at 424 Clay Street, San Francisco.

Cloudflare's goal is to build a better Internet. Today, Cloudflare runs one of the world's largest distributed networks that powers more than 10 trillion requests per month, which is nearly 10 percent of all Internet requests worldwide. Their customers range from Fortune 500 companies and nonprofits to small businesses and budding entrepreneurs.

Forward is redesigning the way we deliver healthcare using all the technologies healthcare has neglected: sensors, mobile, and AI. Named by Time Magazine as "a best invention of 2017", Forward's technology allows patients to monitor their health in real time with their doctors through blood testing, take-home wearables, and a digital health chart.

Philo is a small, ambitious startup building the future of television. Their product lets you watch your favorite shows on all the devices you care about, with intelligent search, insightful discovery, and effortless sharing — in short, they are building the TV watching experience that we've always wanted for ourselves.
