'Après' is a new female-focused networking platform that is aimed at those who have taken a career break and now want to reenter the workforce. For mothers and other women who have taken time off from their career, reentering the job market can be a difficult task. This platform helps women return to their careers by putting them in touch with other professional women.

Après, which officially launches on May 4th, is a female-focused networking platform that helps women secure full-time and temporary positions in a wide variety of industries. With the help of corporate partners, the platform gives women access of editorial content, career coaching and advice from industry experts about how to renter the job market.

The platform not only helps women find meaningful work, but it also helps companies find employees who are not found on traditional networking platforms. As Après co-founder Jennifer Gefsky explains, "This virtually untapped pool of candidates is an invaluable source of talent for corporate America."
