It goes without saying that this list is not going to be your one-stop answer. But it can certainly get you started with your journey of personal growth and career evolution.
You’re going to need to do some research.

Having led with that disclaimer we’re going to share a few resources that have been incredibly useful in my journey so far as a marketing manager (I’ve done my best to balance it, so they’re not all women-focused)!
A fast-paced blog filled with ideas around typical careers, entrepreneurship and leadership, covering everything from having confidence at work, learning new skills at 30, to writing a cover letter, and so much more. It’s also worth noting this blog has an abundance of blog posts on other topics too, including money, parenting and technology (to name just a few)!

Its Career section is regularly updated with advice on interviews, the gender pay gap and networking. Elana Lyn also includes some amazing career profiles with working women that are definitely worth a read.
I recently stumbled across this blog whilst planning on writing this article. Not necessarily career-related Scott does post regularly about the importance of learning, organisation, focus and basically keeping productive and happy.

The career section of its blog covers a range of work and financial topics including the biggies for Gen Z and millennials in the workplace and their financial lives - moving home, setting career goals and boosting your confidence.
Blog: Art of Manliness
