I am devastated for her obviously but she is about to leave a job that she's put her heart into and been an absolute star as she made the company grow double, but been sidelined. She found out recently her salary was 3/4 of what her male colleagues were getting and they didn't even perform last year's targets but she has superceeded expectations. So she went to see the top management at HQ but they have no idea what is happening at that branch; they did not take her seriously so she's decided to take the plunge and leave. She is in the creative industry (not web designer), has a good track record, loyal and has several credentials. Just daunting to start looking for a job again I guess.
I am out of touch with where to look so I wonder if any of you had experience with online or agency applications. No idea if agencies are a good idea, I hear they earn 50% commission ... or should she try online applications. Not being funny but she doesn't plan to send her CV everywhere just more targeted application and not looking for a fresh start in another industry.
Anything you have good advice for, would be very useful. Thanks in advance.
