Your Career OnRamp.
My struggle and frustration became my inspiration to create YourOnRamp. My job search was complete. I partnered up with Millie Froeb, an HBS grad passionate about helping women navigate their career transitions. We wrote a business plan, built a team and in 2007 launched YourOnRamp, an online community, career resource and job board for women in career transition.
Are you a woman who took a career break and are now eager to find your next path? Do you need to contribute to your family’s finances? Are you looking for career inspiration and flexible work options? Is the thought of brushing off your resume and going on an interview overwhelming? Is it really possible to find meaningful, professional part-time work?
You may not want to return to your prior career, but how do you move from the playground into a new fulfilling career? Technology has changed everything.
