Women In Web Weekly Round-Up

WEEKLY ROUND UP TEMPIt’s been another remarkable week at Women In Web and we’re working on some thrilling features that we simply cannot wait to share with you!

This week we featured Laurie Burns, Chief Development Officer for Darden Restaurants in our Q&A. Laurie is responsible for all development of some of the most popular restaurants in the USA including Olive Garden, LongHorn Steakhouse and The Capital Grille. Read our interview with her here.

We also had a great guest post from one of our Advocates, Monster. Joanie Courtney, Senior Vice President at Monster shared with us her top tips on the right way to find a job online and maximise your chances of getting hired. If you’re looking for a new job this is one post you won’t want to miss.

Another highlight this week has been our exclusive interview with Mightybell CEO and Co-Founder Gina Bianchini. Mightybell is a fantastic platform for building and developing online communities, and the company announced this week that the platform is now open to all organisations and individuals. Mightybell has worked with organisations including Lean In and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and it was fantastic to hear more about what they’ve got planned for the future. Check out the interview here. 

This week’s question from Co-Founder Ena is: “Have you thought what other roles your current skills set could lend itself to?” Share your thoughts with us via Facebook and Twitter. 

We were also delighted that Morning Joe’s Mika Brzezinski tweeted us a photo of her and President Obama’s Senior Advisor, Valerie Jarrett at a reception for the Red Sox at the White House!
