A common saying I hear in the black feminist community is: "If White Women have a glass ceiling to break, then Black Women have a concrete ceiling" Well, I'd like to think of it as a concrete door- heavy, yet I can bust it open with the right tools.
Today, we're exploring one of the first tools I discovered online. It's called GlassDoor.com. How do you break into a company like Google, Proctor and Gamble or Elliott Davis? You get the inside scoop.

What I learned from navigating GlassDoor!
OK. So how to Navigate Glassdoor!
It's pretty simple to use. If you want to research a particular company and location, just type that into the obvious search boxes. From there you can click on Interviews, Companies, Salaries, and Interviews. This site is legit so take notes on the Interview portion. I've always had at least 1-2 questions asked in the interview that were at least similar to what was online.
Glassdoor is clutch. Especially for those who are just starting out! This is not a paid endorsement or anything. (But I wish it was)
And remember it's a concrete DOOR, not really a ceiling; and we lean in with tools like jack hammers while getting someone from the inside to open it up! #LeanInKeisha #AllDay #SharingisCaring.
