Your resume and cover letter are on point and you’ve built a fantastic network. It comes as no surprise, then, that you not only have a job offer, but that you also have more than one. It’s an awesome feeling, but it can be scary to make a decision. How do you know you’ll love working somewhere without actually doing it? Here’s how to handle multiple job offers and come out on top.
Resumes, cover letters and thank you notes are the worst part of the job application process. We get that, so we pulled together some tools, tips and tricks to make the process just a little easier for you.
At She Spends, we’re all about practical advice. We’re excited by New Year’s resolutions, but we want to make sure our resolutions are things we can achieve in a year. Here is our guide to achieving some money and career resolutions. Some of these were shared by members of our Facebook group, while others are our own. Check them out, and share on social media what your resolutions are.
As you’re preparing for holiday travel and struggling to make it through the a string of holiday parties and happy hours, we suggest you take an hour or two to set yourself up for career success in 2018. Using our checklist below, you’ll be able to start 2018 on the right foot.
The holidays are hard. We get it. So we put together a guide on some of the most common problems that arise in the office, among families and with ourselves during the holiday season. Be sure to check in on our Facebook group as the holidays approach - there’s a lot of advice given and received there.
As we kick off the holiday season, it's easy to get wrapped up in spending more, or even going into debt, without really noticing. For our hygge month, we’re sharing some ideas for financial self-care that you can do right now. These ideas will help you feel in control of your money while also helping you to make positive long-term changes.
November is unofficially “Conscientious Consumerism” month at She Spends. We’ve talked about thrifting a work wardrobe and investing in ESG strategies, along with questioning who benefits from #girlboss merch. As we raise our consciousness as consumers this month, we’re going to discuss buying locally.
We talk a lot at She Spends about spending money in ways that align with our values. From values-based budgeting to making time for volunteer work, we know our readers care about the world around them.
I was talking with a friend the other day about a meeting she led at her company recently. Unfortunately, though, the meeting didn’t go as smoothly as she had hoped. Several of her co-workers (all men) interrupted her for the entirety of the meeting.
Sound familiar? Yep, it does for me too (even if I don’t lead meetings… yet!).
It’s 3 p.m. on a Wednesday and you’re wildly bored at work. You log into Facebook, maybe to take a peek at what’s happening in the She Spends group. A chat pops up. It’s a woman you tangentially knew in high school that you haven’t cared to ax from your friends list. The calming playlist you curated for work breaks like these suddenly gives way to horror movie music. You open the message.
“Hey girl!! So… long time no talk, but I wanted to reach out because I know you have a passion for working out like me! I just became a Beachbody consultant and I wanted to share their AMAZING product with you!”
The three little dots continue to blink. She’s still typing. You know the pitch for Shakeology is coming, but you don’t know how to escape. You dash off a message: “Hey girl! Sorry, I’m not interested in diets. But thanks!” You close the browser, pull out your earbuds and take a deep breath. There’s sage in your desk drawer. Is it insane to light it at work?
How many times have you decided to go on a diet? For me, it’s certainly been too many times to count. Eventually, my diet and severe food allergies led to an eating disorder, which is a story so many women can tell.
Of course, the issue is systemic. Our desire to lose weight comes from many sources. We can choose to blame magazines, our mothers, the scale or mean boys on the playground, but we should also take a look at the way the weight-loss industry, one that has been steeped in sexism for years, is taking advantage of one of our greatest insecurities.
Ever sit down to start a budget, but not know where to start? Values-based budgeting, or the process of spending and saving based on how you want to live, can be a unique way to manage your budget.
Does the word “networking” make you want to cringe? Are you one of those people who hide in the bathroom to avoid awkward conversation? We get it. We are too.
Ever wonder if you could find an easier way to pay off your student loans? There are actually a few ways you can simplify the process, including refinancing and consolidation. We spoke with Bustle this week about refinancing. We’re also going to break down the two processes for you and help you decide whether it’s right for you.
Have you ever been sexually harassed at work? You’re not alone. One third of women who responded to a Cosmo poll said they had been sexually harassed at work, while 60% of women working in the tech industry said they have been sexually harassed.
In the hopes of arming you with the tools you need to handle sexual harassment at work, we’ve created a guide.
We’re not shy about the importance we place on volunteering our time and donating our money at SheSpends. We are, after all, one of the many organizations that sprang up in the wake of the 2016 election: an attempt at being the change we wanted to see in the world.
Do you ever wonder how the company you work for is really doing? It can be difficult to see through those company update emails that management sends every once in awhile. You know the ones. They use vague language and always assure that your company is performing well. Sometimes that might be true, but for others, it’s far from the case.
Happy Labor Day! It’s going to be so nice to have a day off from work on Monday, right? But do you know why we actually celebrate Labor Day?
