Tale Of A Woman’s Career
A sparkling river
springs its way through the seasons
A giggle-scented boulder of cuddles
with a taste of bliss
and a sense of duty
to stops the waters
in their tracks.
It lays down its head to one side
savor the beauty at the pause.
Slowly gathering more waters
to reach across the boulder.
And on to the next scenery
carrying cuddles along
INSPIRATION/CAUSE FOR THE DAY: ORGANIZATIONS HELPING WOMEN RESTART THEIR CAREERS
Many women, mostly at the mid of their career, leave their jobs. In India, research shows it is as high as 48%! There are many reasons that a woman leaves her job: kids, family commitments, insufficient support system, inflexible work are some on the list. Today, I wish to showcase the many companies that are doing their bit in helping women restart their careers.
JobsForHer, founded by a woman who restarted her career after a break, is a bangalore based company deals exclusively who want to return to the workforce.
Sheroes, which started out as a career portal for woman, has now evolved to a huge community support group for women.
Reboot, provide the necessary personal mentoring and reskilling support along with opportunities for women who are looking out for jobs to get back on the corporate ladder.
You will find a more comprehensive list of all the companies here.
And if you were wondering why a woman should work, visit one of my most popular posts to find out!
Do share this list with women who are trying to get back their foot in the door and get their careers flowing again.
