PowerToFly

PowerToFly is a job-search site with a specific mission -- to help women get back into the workforce after time off. It's not your typical job-search site either, because PowerToFly is not only on a mission to equalize the workforce, it also wants to help cut back on time spent job searching by matching companies with qualified candidates. The process to get registered is a bit involved, since all candidates need to be vetted before joining, but once you're approved you can start getting matched with companies. Once matched, there's a two to four-week test period to make sure the job is a good fit before you can officially sign on -- but you do get paid during that time.
