Better Jobs with Companies that Care
Jan. 17th 2018
How many people do you speak with on an average weekday? Perhaps just the surly barista taking your coffee order, colleagues gathered at the water cooler discussing a TV program you've never seen, a grocery store clerk with no knowledge of where capers are stocked, and maybe a family member via text later that night about Cousin Gertrude's impending nuptials. While the conversations are there, the meaningful connections our minds need to thrive may be lacking from our normal routines alone. Social interaction is one of the most important factors when it comes to one's mental and physical health, and it's one of the reasons we think PowerToFly Networks is one of the biggest benefits our site offers. Once you've created a profile on PowerToFly, you now have access to hundreds of thousands of women just like you, and have the opportunity to connect and speak with women who want to help you succeed in both your personal and professional lives. Don't believe us? Shoot one of our cofounders a message and see what happens- even busy moms running their own businesses want to connect with you!
