A NEW FlexTime Jobs Only Marketplace for Working Daughters who are Caregivers
I didn't choose caregiving. Caregiving chose me. That bitch! He (caregiving) just showed up unannounced and completely shifted my life as I knew it. One day I’m chilling focusing on my career, and then bam mom gets ALS, and now I am juggling caregiving & my career.
Every day I struggle with the possibility of caregiving ultimately killing my career. Like most of us know, becoming a caregiver wasn't a choice we planned for but instead a life interruption forcing you into a caregiving or career corner. I love my aging parents, and I love my job. Thanks to a recent article written by Liz O'Donnell of www.workingdaughter.com, I discovered some stuff I don't love…
no say WERK! www.saywerk.com

So How does Werk Work
All jobs postings featured on the Werk Marketplace have pre-negotiated types of flexibility that can be filtered based on your flexiverse (term coined by Werk)needs.
Introducing the Flexiverse™
The Flexiverse™ is Werk’s proprietary framework of flexibility. The Flexiverse™ allows employers to effectively communicate about the types of flexibility they can offer. Job seekers can use the Flexiverse™ to discover opportunities that are compatible with their lives. Every job posted on Werk features at least one type of flexibility from the Flexiverse™.
Can Werk help you negotiate your flexible schedule at your current job?
Yes! Over the course of this year, Werk will be rolling out resources and support to help companies and candidates negotiate flexibility. In the meantime, Werk will do everything they can to support you. If you need help, please email Werk at firstname.lastname@example.org.
