Do you know why JobsForHer works so well for women who want to regain their self-confidence to restart after a career break?
Because more than half our team WERE on a break and we came back. And we remember how tough it was for us to even THINK about finding jobs after a career break. So, every day, we put ourselves back in your shoes and try to think like you are, right now.
And it works.
We figure out what women like us want to read to motivate their journey back to the working world. We do the homework that is necessary to sign on the best companies for working mothers every day, we find and list the best jobs for women returners every day, we showcase the best job opportunities for restarters every day, and as an online job portal for women returning to work, we stay true to the heart of what we do, every day. We never lose sight of it.
Because, we’ve been there.
And we know that, in the end, applying for A job or multiple jobs a day wasn't enough. Not nearly. It took a concerted effort of our mind, body, and spirit to find our way back.
We had to put ourselves out there a little bit. We had to force ourselves to meet people outside of the comfort zones we'd set for ourselves. We had to push ourselves to open the newspaper or online news journals / business journals and read about what was going on in the world, so that when we met these people we had relevant topics to converse with them about.
We had to brush up our communication skills. We spent some time in front of a mirror, or with a trusted friend, practising that professional chitchat that can make or break an interview. We usually enlisted the help of others.
Now we're telling you that WE'LL help YOU.
We are putting together India’s BIGGEST conference & career fair for women returning to work, on September 1st, in Mumbai, so we’re telling women around the city to mark the date in their calendars and find a way to be there!
From women’s mentoring programs, to career advice and reskilling workshops for women, to a job fair packed with a generous mix of small, medium, and large enterprises, and start-ups, who are all looking to hire women after a break, the day will give you everything you need to rebuild the confidence in yourself that you lost during your break. It will show you how to tackle that job hunt and FIND the job that’s best for you!
And for those who are looking for that extra-special motivation and inspiration, the kind that can only come from women who have gone before us and paved the way for us in times that were tougher on women in the workplace, and the men who believed in this movement way before we stumbled upon it – come to our conference to start the day.
We have curated a bouquet of panel discussions that will bring together elite groups of women-returner champions from the working world. Men and women from both the corporate and non-corporate worlds will tell you why companies NEED to hire women returners to boost their bottom lines, and what they’ve done in their companies to facilitate the advancement of women in the workplace.
Career guidance experts and women restarters will share space on stage to talk about all the ways that women can immediately increase their confidence levels to find their way back to work.
