We know that every woman who has taken a break in India did it because she had to, because nobody else in her family could or would, did it because she put others’ needs before hers. We’ve all been there. We’ve all done it. And we’ve all returned.
You can too.
We’re here to catch you when you fall, like we did for each other and continue to do every single day. We’re here to tell you that you’re wanted, you’re needed, and you’re still RELEVANT to the working world outside your doors.
Take a leap of faith this International Women’s Day and #BeBoldforChange with JobsForHer.
Girl, we got you.
Join our Facebook LIVE CHAT on Friday, March 10th from 11 am to 12 noon on my (Neha Bagaria’s) Facebook page! For one hour, you can ask me, and all the women on our team, who restarted their careers, anything & everything related to restarting YOUR CAREER!
Neha Bagaria is an entrepreneur at heart, a Wharton grad, a wife, a mother-of-two and a woman who restarted her career, thus founding JobsForHer. JobsForHer is not Neha’s first entrepreneurial venture.
She founded her first company Paragon, right after she graduated from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. Paragon, an educational centre based in Bombay, introduced the Advanced Placement Program for high school students in India, with Neha also serving as the College Board Representative of India. When marriage brought her to Bangalore, she started working with Kemwell, a contract pharmaceutical manufacturing company, in the fields of HR, Finance and Marketing strategy. Neha took a break in her own career when she had her children. During this personal journey, she became aware of the various difficulties a woman faces in order to re-enter the workforce. She then became committed to the cause of enabling women to restart their careers and founded JobsForHer.com to help them achieve their full potential.
