Better Jobs With Companies That Care

It's Katharine Z, the Cofounder of PowerToFly. I thought I was terrible at Excel. I thought I was terrible at public speaking. I thought I wasn't great at a lot of things... and then I found the right women at PowerToFly to teach me what I'd blocked out over the years. We've assembled a crew of them for our VIP program to show you everything from how to build prototypes, speak publicly, pivot into a tech career later in life, master Excel and more. I'm also teaching a course that shares exactly how I've placed my stories in The New York Times, Fortune, Elle and beyond. Access all the course and a lot more by becoming a PowerToFly VIP here.
