the future of job platforms and why it matters for you as female talent

Updated: Nov 5, 2021

The job market as we (and generations before us) knew it has changed fundamentally. You as talent now have decision-making power when it comes to choosing your preferred workplace. But the way we currently get to jobs (>80 % of applicants are coming through job sites) is outdated, which makes the job hunt hard and daunting. We're here to make it a little easier for you.

a shift in power dynamics - and you are winning!

The pandemic has recalibrated the power dynamics between talents and employers and this shift is here to stay. As qualified talent you now can choose who you want to work for and where you want to invest your precious time.

“I wanna work where what I do matters, where my time investment can add a positive contribution to the overall impact the company is aiming to create.” - a female talent about the ideal workplace

Money is by far not the only or most important decision driver. Studies show our generation is looking for impact, self-fulfillment, location- and time independence, a diverse leadership culture and development opportunities.

job platforms are not reflecting the needs of talents

Career and job sites are still the #1 driver of applications. But let’s be honest, most job platforms today are a little outdated showcasing professions, location and salary range and don’t really include any of these factors we elaborated on above.

Especially as a woman it’s a challenge by itself to understand if the employer to be is offering equal opportunities, equal pay and is open and considerate when it comes to the needs and wishes of women in the workplace.

When you are on the job hunt, you need to do your research about the employer, but why make it so hard in the first place?

introducing your unfair advantage to find your dream career

We wanted to facilitate this shift in power dynamics and support the next generation of female leaders in finding their dream job in companies who are putting their people first.

As the female factor we are already connecting (female) job seekers with pioneering employers through mentoring, networking and our career programs. But to make it even easier for female talents to find their ideal workplace, we were working on something bigger:

We are super excited to announce the launch of our next generation job platform, showcasing job opportunities of companies that put their people first and are pledging to especially support women in work place.

Our team hand-picks job opportunities and is vetting every single company according to the following criteria:

  • diverse leadership team

  • diversity & inclusion goals in place

  • employee benefits offered

  • presence and reviews across career platforms

Only if companies reach a certain number of points, their job ads will be listed on our platform.

Job seekers can search according to the factors that really matters to them when it comes to their ideal workplace:

  • (flexible) working conditions

  • development opportunities

  • diverse leadership

  • family-friendly policies

As part of our mission to close the gender leadership gap, we are delighted to now play an even bigger role in connecting female talents with inclusive companies.

Thank you once again for being with us on this journey, we are looking forward to making big things happen together!

If you have any questions, ideas, concerns, please, feel free to reach out to us at any time!
