Things On The Web: 9 Instagram Accounts Career Women Should Follow

Since I spend a lot of time scrolling through various feeds, I make sure I follow accounts that will also be of help to me. So instead of having pointless social media scrolling, I’m actually looking at content that inspires me.

Here are the 9 Instagram accounts that inspire me to be better at my job and life in general.

Career Advice: careercontesa


This is an account that keeps me sane whenever I need that extra push to tick off tasks on my checklist. It also gives useful advice to yuppies like me who are still establishing themselves in the workforce.

Career and Lifestyle Tips : careergirldaily


This account shares relatable content about the lifestyle of a career girl–from money advice to the perfect clothes to wear in an interview.

Coffee & Fashion Porn : coffeenfashion


I run on coffee and I know you do too. Well, let these coffee and fashion photos keep you going! Her feed is perfectly curated. Can I say #feedgoals? YES.

Girl Power: girlboss


Sophia Amoruso, the author or #Girlboss, is my personal girlboss crush. I listen to her podcast wherein she talks to other girlbosses about how they achieved their goals so we can learn from their stories. Those lessons and stories are summarized in one short social media post in this Instagram account. And that reminds me to just keep doing my thing, because not all success stories go through the same path.

Grammar: grammar_tips


Brushing up on grammar never hurt anybody. Besides, you’ll be sending tons of emails in your job, might as well do it right.
