Our career and our finances: for professional working women
these surely rate as our most precious assets - perhaps along with
our reputation and our personal brand.
Annie Lennox sang years ago that "sisters are doing it for
themselves" and it's a wise (and happy) woman who keeps a
measure of financial independence while doing work she finds
engaging and meaningful.
In all the years Professionelle has been running, it's
probably no accident that most of the requests for advice we've
received have been from women wanting to identify and
capitalise on their career opportunities. These questions reflect
all career stages, from Day One, Job One through to
boomers pondering what a satisfying retirement would look like. The
recent global financial turmoil has added redundancy advice to what
you'll find in this theme.
Lastly, we share interviews with successful women, asking their
advice on careers and how they "make it all work".
