Every month, millions of women come to Fairygodboss to find jobs, research employer ratings and reviews and get news and advice that matters. But this just scratches the surface of what you can do at Fairygodboss, and, as we grow, we want to make sure you’re aware of all of the opportunities offered to FGB’ers. Here are thirteen ways to take full advantage of our resources:
1. Join The Largest Career Network For Women
Through the new Fairygodboss Feed, you can share articles, ask and answer questions, and view the latest community activity on our site. After joining our community, you can: easily engage in conversations with other FGB’ers on pertinent topics like career advice, news and entertainment, and parenting; comment on FGB content and other news; and share thoughts, links, and videos. We now send FGB’ers notifications about the posts and comments they create, so you’ll easily see when people comment on or reply to anything you share.
2. Customize Your Experience and Identity
You can update your Fairygodboss profile at any time by visiting your profile page. Adding your experience and education helps you stand out to recruiters and increase your visibility to other members of Fairygodboss. You can also add professional skills, interests an "About Me" statement and link to your website.
3. Join Fairygodboss Groups
We want to better connect you with each other and organizations that match your profession, lifestyle and interests. FGB Groups does just that and we’ve already got a diverse network for you to join. If you can’t quite find what you’re looking for, you can always start your own group and invite your friends, family, and colleagues to join!
4. Attend Virtual Programming
Fairygodboss provides free professional development programming every single week. You can explore our upcoming webinars, register to attend, learn something new, and connect with other FGB’ers — all without leaving your house!
5. Connect and Invite Others to Fairygodboss
The easiest way to add connections is to invite the people you know to join Fairygodboss. A lot of women invite colleagues, mentors, friends, or family members. When they accept your invitations, they'll automatically be connected to you. You can also connect with other FGB'ers who are already on the platform by searching their profiles — via usernames or brief handle information — and click the "invite to connect" button at the bottom of their profiles.
6. Message Your Active Connections
You can now send a direct message to anyone within your FGB network! This means you can ask private questions to the experts and insiders in our community. To send someone a message, make sure that you’re first connected to them (and send them an invite if you aren’t). FGB Group Chat also allows all members of a group to message each other within one group chat. Find out everything you need to know about messaging here.
7. Get Verified and Become An FGB VIP Expert
The FGB Community is about celebrating, supporting and connecting career-minded women and our FGB VIP expert program includes a diverse group of entrepreneurs, HR professionals, career coaches, consultants, and other influential experts. This group of hand-selected women are verified by Fairygodboss and it shows on their profiles! It’s a great way for experts to establish their voice with our large community by signing-in with their real name and provide value to women who are looking for advice.
If you’d like to be an expert to a group of powerful women who build each other up and encourage the confidence boost to shape happy, healthy, and maintainable careers and lifestyles, please fill out this nomination form for further details. We expect this would be a relatively modest investment of your time (e.g. 5 minutes per week).
8. Become a Community Contributor
Community Contributors are the conversation starters to a community that strives to make it easier for career-minded women to connect and engage with each other and improve the workplace for women. If you'd like to add an extra bullet to your resume and become an active contributor on the FGB Community Feed, please email [email protected] with the subject line "Community Contributors" for more details.
