Neha Bagaria, Wharton graduate, decided to take a break from her career to start a family in 2009 - a break that turned into three years. By the time she was ready to step back into the fray, however, she was amazed at how much had changed.
“I dealt with everything from guilt management to time management to fear management to biases management,” says Bagaria, 36, who now has two boys aged 9 and 6.
Her reasoning was that if she experienced all of these doubts and concerns it must resonate with a lot of women trying to re-enter the workforce. Thus was born JobsForHer – a portal dedicated to women aspiring to restart their careers.
She launched it on International Women’s Day in 2015. It now draws more than 300,000 monthly visitors. Bagaria says that she’s been able to reach millions of women through Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter.
With a reach spanning 15 cities from Delhi to Mumbai to Chennai, JobsForHer features postings from more than 5,000 companies including the likes of banking behemoth Citibank, retail giant Future Group and consumer goods major Unilever. The listings range from volunteer opportunities to part-time and flexible options in addition to full-time work.
