Recommended Tools & Resources

The job search process can be very daunting and there is so much information out there. What job search platforms should I use? What do I wear to an interview? What books should I read? Is LinkedIn Premium really worth it? What cool companies are even out there?

Don’t waste a ton of time sifting through all the noise when you should be spending time networking and connecting with your top company picks. Use this list as your guide. I wish someone had synthesized this information down for me when I was going through the job search process.

Just as an aside, I’m affiliates with some of the resources on this page. Meaning, I get a small commission whenever a purchase is made through my link. There’s no extra cost to you and you often get a bigger discount than if you were to purchase outright. Don’t worry though, I promise to never promote a service I haven’t used myself, recommended to my clients or thoroughly researched.

Did you know that most of our personal care products are toxic?

Yeah, I didn’t either until someone educated me. When you know better, you do better. Now, I’ve completely revamped my bathroom to include safer beauty products. Plus, I love supporting and joining organizations that are female-founded and mission-driven.
