New Online Course from 9 Lives for Women Helps Women Find Work They Actually Want

Affordable Career Coaching Alternative: “Find A Flexible Job & Make
Work Fit Life”

WILTON, Conn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#Career–As Hillary Clinton aims for the Oval Office, are more women inspired to
“lean in” toward the C-Suite? Probably not, says Kathryn
Sollmann
of 9
Lives for Women
: “Most highly educated, talented women don’t
fret the glass ceiling. They want and need less life-consuming, more
sustainable, flexible work that accommodates child and aging parent
caregiving.”

Where is that flexible work found? The Internet offers career resources
for “traditional” work and few women can afford career coaches (an
average $160/hour). Too many women exit—to care for children (an average
12-year hiatus) or up to four aging parents who need 25+ hours/week of
hands-on or oversight care. Women still believe their only paid work
option is the full-time+ corporate grind.

Each year out, a woman forfeits up to 4X her salary in total
compensation, benefits and saving/investing potential.

9 Lives for Women’s mission is to keep women working. Building on
its highly acclaimed Make
Work Fit Life
event
, the firm created an affordable resource: Find
A Flexible Job & Make Work Fit Life
a self-paced,
online course that sharpens tools women need to find flexible
work. 22 short sessions, 12 worksheets, recommended reading and a
discussion forum—just $39.

In a few hours, women learn how to:

  • Aim for flexwork structures that best accommodate caregiving roles
  • Pinpoint expertise for very specific, part-time employer needs
  • Sell marketable “specialist” strengths via resumes, LinkedIn, and more
  • Maximize networking efforts to find truly flexible employers
  • Persuade interviewers they can add immediate value to understaffed
    projects/initiatives.

Find A Flexible Job & Make Work Fit Life draws on Sollmann’s
15 years of experience as a recruiter, career coach and work+life
expert. She has been interviewed on The Today Show, NPR and CBS
News. Her award-winning blog is read globally and carried on Huffington
Post
