Every month, millions of women come to Fairygodboss to find jobs, research employer ratings and reviews and get 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 Fairygodboss members. Here are 13 ways to take full advantage of our resources.

1. Join the largest career network for women.

The Fairygodboss Feed is a place where you can connect with other women to get your career questions answered, share your experiences and offer other Fairygodboss members impactful advice. You can easily engage in conversations on various pertinent topics, including job searches, stress management and workplace diversity; or join a group and speak with women who share your unique interests.  

2. Customize your profile and stand out to recruiters.

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. Beyond your experience and education, you can also add professional skills, dream companies, an "About Me" statement and a link to your website. 

3. Get the career advice and support you need.

The Fairygodboss community is here to help you get the answers you need to any career questions you may have. Post your question, thoughts or experience to the Community Feed for all members to see and offer advice, encouragement and support. You always have the option to post anonymously! We 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.

4. Find jobs at companies that want to hire you. 

Our job search experience offers FGB’ers a personalized dashboard of job recommendations that:

  • Reflects your search history
  • Suggests job alerts and email notifications that you may add or edit
  • Enables you to follow companies that interest you (including their latest job postings and employee reviews)
  • Allows you to save jobs you’ve browsed and would like to review later
  • Offers a search filter by company or location, including exclusively remote positions

5. Expand your network.

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 also send a direct message to anyone within your FGB network. This means you can ask private questions to the experts 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. Join Fairygodboss groups.

FGB Groups better connect you with other Fairygodboss members and organizations that match your profession and career interests. 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!

8. Learn from free Fairygodboss events.

Fairygodboss provides free professional development programming every single week. You can explore our upcoming webinars, register to learn something new, and connect with other FGB’ers — all without leaving your house!

9. 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 influential experts. This group of hand-selected women are verified by Fairygodboss and it shows on their profiles — anyone with a “wing” on their profile is an FGB VIP expert! It’s a great way for experts to establish their voice within our large community by signing in and providing valuable advice to women. 

10. Learn from expert-sourced content.

We have a wide network of female role models, recruiters and career experts who write for Fairygodboss. By sharing their insight, we supply readers with content that informs, entertains and inspires. You can comment on articles and like pieces that speak to you.

11. Find out what women are saying about your employer (or a prospective one!).

We’ve gathered reviews from women around the world who candidly describe their company’s culture and policies. If you leave a review of your own company, you’ll get intel on salaries, work-life balance, benefits and more at thousands of other employers. 

12. Get the data on what’s affecting women in the workplace.

Stay up to date with exclusive FGB research on how women are experiencing the workplace. Our research covers numerous topics, including work-life balance, gender equality, and women's job mobility.

13. Find inspiration from Fairygodboss radio.
