Do all Women@Work placements involve flexibility? Are all Women@Work candidates looking for part-time positions?

No. Although all the women in our network are striving to achieve a greater degree of work-life balance, many are used to working within very traditional full-time structures and expect to continue to do so. Women@Work places women into permanent full-time and part-time positions—as well as “1099” consulting engagements.

What does flexibility really mean? Is giving in to flexibility opening the door to one big “free for all”?

Employers want to control their work environments—and rightfully so. There’s lots of work to get done, and work does mean work! But productivity levels do not need to suffer at the hand of flexibility. And flexibility does not require a major overhaul of your workplace. At Women@Work we offer employers some basic wisdom on the matter of flexibility: Don’t think outside the box, just redesign it.

Why should my company use the services of Women@Work when there are thousands of unemployed people looking for work?

Unemployment figures are indeed still high, but the majority of unemployed workers are in the manufacturing sector. It is still difficult to find "A List" knowledge based workers--and many of these professionals are already employed.

How have the returning professional women in your network continued to develop their business skills?

At least 60% of the women in our network are current professionals who have never left the work force.

Does Women@Work specialize in a particular industry or company size?

We are working with industry giants such as JP Morgan, McGraw-Hill, Pepperidge Farm and Pitney Bowes, as well as many smaller companies in a very wide range of industries. We have generated candidates for positions in sales, marketing, accounting, technical writing, financial planning, corporate training, IT, investment banking, communications, finance, public relations, travel, consumer products research, law and much more.

Are Women@Work candidates at a particular level and compensation range?

Women@Work has generated top-quality mid to senior-level candidates for positions that range from $50,000 to $1 million in compensation. Women@Work does not specialize in one area: we have administrative to C-suite candidates in all industries.

Our mid-level administrative candidate pool (non-clerical Executive Assistants, Project Managers, Office Managers, etc.), which often includes well educated returning professionals, is atypical and of a higher quality than can be found through other resources.

Why are Women@Work Network candidates of a higher quality than would be found through other sources?

Top-quality candidates typically do not look for employment opportunities in newspaper classifieds or mass market online job postings. Experts estimate that 60 to 80% of job seekers land positions through networking—and this is especially true of top-quality candidates.

The best candidates move in the same circles and look to each other for significant job leads. Women@Work, first and foremost, is a networking organization—nearly 8,000 smart women helping other smart women nationwide.
