Congresswoman Porter notes women have been disproportionately affected by job loss during the pandemic and they are often the last to recover, noting issues like having to be home with children for remote schooling, the closure of daycares, and says industries many moms worked in were particularly hit hard. She also notes this issue is even worse for women of color and low-income women. Congresswoman Porter explains these factors can affect women getting a promotion and being able to save for retirement.
To help women and mothers take control of their careers and jobs, Dorianne says women need to "master their storytelling, their personal branding, and networking skills" in order to land and thrive in their dream job.
If you are just starting out in your job search, she says you need to be "crystal clear" on what you want your next job to be and she uses the acronym "D.R.E.A.M." to help guide this search. She says job seekers need to take their time to reflect on what they need from a job to succeed in each of these categories.
- D - development
- R - relationship
- E - environment
- A - acknowledgment
- M - money
She says industries like technology, healthcare, and virtual education are seeing growth and have job opportunities. When explaining why you were out of work due to the pandemic, Dorianne says to keep it brief and to the point and to not worry about going into great detail about being laid off or losing your job.
