In the past year, nearly 3 million women have dropped out of the workforce. At a 33-year low in women’s labor participation, we are facing a gender equality crisis that has the potential to set women back half a decade. If this happens, we’ll end up with far fewer women in leadership—and far fewer women on track to be future leaders. All the progress we’ve seen over the past six years could be erased. Creating more opportunities for remote and highly flexible work is essential.
Meet OpTech's Data Strategist - Sarah
Sarah is a working mom with two children under the age of five. Sarah shares that she can have it all -- a career and a family -- because OpTech allows her to work a modified work week with lots of flexibility built into her day. OpTech helps working moms and dads by offering flexible schedules, part-time opportunities, and modified work weeks. We also help anyone who has taken a break in their career (to raise a family or care for a relative) and help them get back into the workforce.

Do you ever question whether you've found the right job? Maybe you say to yourself that what you have is "good" or "okay" or that it pays the bills. For many of us, we get bogged down in the day to day monotony that makes it difficult to discern "okay" from "great." We all have moments of frustration with fellow coworkers, and at times, we are performing tasks that feel menial or redundant. These every day job realities can cause confusion. Have we settled or is this just normal career ups and downs? These questions can stymie our movement to search for a new job and stay planted in our current position. Here are three signs you love what you do and three signs that it is time to move on.
How you know you've found the right job
How you know when you should start looking for a new job
Making the decision to leave your job or start looking for a new one is scary. It is a major life decision, especially if you have been somewhere for a long time. You should always weigh your options (pros and cons), but remember this: sometimes it is worthwhile just to look and see what else is out there, especially if you are bored or dreading every Monday on the calendar. Looking at job boards and getting a feel for what's out there helps you decide if you want to take the next step...submitting a resume. It's little steps along the way that lead you to your end goal. Whatever you do, don't settle and don't give up.
