The Best Online Resources for Professional Women

Our list of life-saving sites you shouldn't live without.

With hundreds of career websites at your fingertips, it can sometimes be difficult to find authentic content tailored specifically for female professionals. If you’ve been on the lookout for a few career-focused sites, you’re in luck. We’ve put together the ultimate list of online resources for savvy professional women.

Row 1

Lean In: If you’ve read Lean In and were left wanting more, drop by Highlights include inspirational stories and “expert lectures” on topics such as leadership and teamwork.

Ladypreneur League: Do you own a business or are you thinking about starting one? This is the ideal resource for female entrepreneurs. It features entrepreneur profiles and handy work-life articles.

The Boss Mag: Our go-to for honest and real career wisdom. The Boss Mag has some of the best articles, interviews, and advice geared specifically toward working women.

Row 2

That Working Girl: A fab blog curated by Lindsay Shoemake, a Social Media Manger in Denver. It’s filled with practical (and personal) career tips plus Q&As with professionals.

Levo League: The ultimate resource for thriving women professionals. We’re especially keen on the site’s “Office Hours” segments. P.S. You can catch a Levo feature on our very own co-founders, Dorie and Emelyn, right here.

Quarterlette: In your 20s or 30s but don’t have everything figured out quite yet? We can relate. This site is designed for women in their “quarter-lives.” We featured the Quarterlette’s founders on the OM Index. Read about the amazing ladies here.

Row 3

The Muse: This site cranks out fresh career advice like there’s no tomorrow, and it gives readers behind the scenes looks at successful companies. Be sure to check out The Muse job board too.

NYC PR Girls: You don’t have to be in public relations to get the most out of this blog. It contains tried-and-true career (and life) advice. Lindsey Pollak is the bestselling author of Becoming the Boss. Glean some of Lindsay’s helpful insights on her blog. 

Row 4

The Prepary: This site can help you land your next job. (Seriously!) A recruiting expert (and our friend!) founded the Prepary, and content covers everything from cover letters to negotiating offers. 

The Everygirl: Okay, this site isn’t just for professionals… But it features some of our all time favorite career profiles and also has a pretty great job board.

The Lovely It Girl: It’s important to build a personal brand, especially when it comes to having a presence on social media. The Lovely It Girl can help you do just that. Don’t miss the site’s blog.


Femme & Fortune: As an online magazine for success-driven women, this site provides original career-minded articles and interviews and other helpful work-life guidance.

DailyWorth: The DailyWorth helps women make financially sound decisions and features some useful business tips too.

I Want Her Job: Ever hear about different people’s jobs and wonder, “How did she land that position?” Well, this site answers that question. You can review hundreds of career profiles for women in an array of fields.

Row 6

Women 2.0: A great resource for all the techy female entrepreneurs out there. It’s an awesome networking platform—the site coordinates everything from conferences to city meet ups.

Career Contessa: Another great find for female career profiles. We also love reading the Career Contessa blog over a morning cup of coffee.
