Attention all women who work! There are websites out there designed with you in mind. These websites are so valuable for growth, development, and networking with other female professionals. I have found each one of these sites so useful in my daily, working world. I think it’s important to utilize the resources we have available to us to give us as many advantages as we can.
Great website for connecting with other girl bosses. They provide great resources for women in all stages of their career. Follow them on social media sites like Instagram and Pinterest for some working girl inspiration and articles you may have missed.
Their mission is to help women craft happy, healthy, and sustainable career paths with their award-winning personal and professional development training. They also foster a career community to help women feel empowered. Bossed Up even have bootcamps at various locations around the country.
Looking for some boss inspiration? Look no further. Marie Forleo provides budding entreprenuers with tips, tricks, inspiration and empowerment. Seriously spend a few minutes on her blog or YouTube channel and you’ll be ready to take on the world!
Fairy God Boss is set up more like a LinkedIn or Glassdoor than a blog. But there are extremely valuable resources for women who work all over their website. They provide salary and maternity leave resources, jobs, and a safe place for women to go to ask and answer each other’s questions.
Like Fairy God Boss, this site is designed to help women in the job search process. This one has a unique spin though. Katharine Zaleski and Milena Berry launched Power to Flow to help women find jobs that allow them to work from home. They will actually place qualified women into telecommuting jobs that fit their professional desires.
Career Contessa is an advice website for working women, but they do not shy away from grey area topics. They touch on everything from when to quit your job, interview advice, professional development, and side hustle. If you have a question you need answered, I advise starting here.
While this website is not necessarily geared toward women, it is hugely helpful in the battle against the wage gap. Users are able to create a profile for their potential job and find out what salary they should be negotiating for. It takes many variables into consideration, that women may overlook when calculating their desired income for a new position.
I hope you found at least one or two of these websites helpful. I encourage all women who work, no matter how you define work, to take advantage of resources available to you! Let me know if you have used any of these or any other sites that may be useful to some of the other readers.
