themuseThe Muse (@themuse)

We love the clean graphic style and the hyper-relevant advice at The Muse. Their website is focused on helping people succeed in their careers, find meaningful jobs at the best companies, and get inspired in whatever it is they're doing. With a slick blend of quotes, statistics, communication tips, and specific job advice, The Muse is definitely worth following. We're especially fond of their "The First" series, featuring groundbreakers who are making an impact within industries that were traditionally closed to diversity.

Career Contessa is the only career site built exclusively for women. They help women cultivate successful careers through expert advice, interviews, and videos. Career Contessa’s Insta highlights strong women and inspirational quotes that will empower you to make moves in the workplace. We're big fans of their "The Salary Project" which enables salary transparency. Knowing how your salary compares to others in your field is power, plain and simple. It's evidence you can use to ask for a raise or walk into an interview room with a clear argument for your salary requirements. Good stuff!
