Better Jobs With Companies That Care
Feb. 6th 2018
It's only Tuesday, but we're already starting to plan out our weekend (it's how we're getting through this cold spell in the Northeast) and it starts with a large cup of coffee, a cozy chair, and Emily Chang's novel, Brotopia, that was just released today. We've got an inside scoop from PowerToFly CoFounder Katharine Zaleski (who's quoted in chapter seven!), but we're most anxious to read how Emily says we can break this toxic culture--to bring down the brotopia, once and for all. Have you read something recently that really inspired you? We'd love to hear your favorite novels on female empowerment, or just cozy read. Shoot us a message on Networks with your recommendations!

Brittany Boardman went to her first interview with Stack Overflow without expecting much.
"I'm not technical, I'm not an engineer. And I wasn't necessarily looking [for a new job]. But Stack just blew me away," says Brittany of her first exposure to the company behind the world's largest and most trusted software developer and technologist community. "The people I met that day seemed like they genuinely liked coming to work. There was this cohesive belief in what the company was doing. I was converted pretty quickly after that interview—Stack was somewhere I wanted to join."
