New website for young career women received a “10 Best” nod by industry heavyweight Forbes a mere two weeks after its launch. Move over mommy blogs—single, ambitious career women in their 20s and 30s form the newest powerful online nation.
Washington, DC—On the heels of the launch of JaneHasAJob.com, a career and lifestyle website directed towards young, driven women, Forbes Woman dubbed it a “10 Best” career website for women. JaneHasAJob.com offers a largely untapped demographic—single women just beginning their careers—job advice, relevant newsbytes, style guidance, and a community hub.
“We are honored that Forbes Woman included us on its prestigious list. A career hub for young women has been long overdue—and our mission is to provide readers with the tools they need to get their foot in the career door, attain success once they're there, and have fun while doing it,” said founder Emma Chase. As one reader tweeted about JaneHasAJob.com, “I absolutely love your website—finally something I can relate to!”
The idea for JaneHasAJob.com occurred to Ms. Chase when, searching for an Internet resource with targeted advice and dynamic content for someone in her position—a recent post-graduate, searching for career-planning and lifestyle resources—she came up empty. She found websites for working moms, for careers in transition, and for more established career women, but none for a woman just embarking on her career.
So, drawing on her experience working in media, attending and graduating law school, surviving rigorous recruiting and interview seasons, and working in the private legal sector—Ms. Chase created a new web destination for young women charting their careers.
JaneHasAJob.com offers tactical career tips on topics like thank-you letters after interviews, advice from career experts, style and fashion guidance for working women, and other news and content that related to its readership.
