About Us

We are on a mission.

Today in the United States, there are more than three million women with college or advanced degrees trying to reenter the workforce. These women are an invaluable source of talent for corporate America—they bring a strong skillset, a proven work record, reliability, life experience, and confidence. So why is it nearly impossible for them—for women like you—to get a job?

We created Après to change this.

Après is curating a job market JUST FOR YOU. The companies on our site have made a pledge to hire women returning to the workforce.

Après will coach you through this transition. We have vetted career coaches and expert advice to help you brush up on your skills, regain your confidence, and better understand today’s workforce to prep you to get hired.

Après connects you with others who understand what you’re going through—from watching inspiring success stories to sharing triumphs (and missteps), you’ll find like-minded people to walk the path.

Après sparks gender diversity. We are working with companies across a broad array of industries to promote the value of your talent. We are committed to changing the equation and getting more women like you back into the workforce.

Jennifer Gefsky
Jennifer Gefsky
Co-Founder

I’m a former big-firm and Major League Baseball labor lawyer and a self-described worker bee who believes gender equality is actually possible. Things that make me happy: a great pair of shoes; a glass of wine with friends (ok, wine without friends makes me happy too); and my family. Things that make me mad: cruelty of any kind; the pressure on teenage girls to sexualize themselves on social media; and a woman who doesn’t believe in herself. (The list is actually much longer.) I am on a mission to empower women by helping them get back to work and to educate companies on the value this demographic brings to any workforce.  My motto is “don’t be afraid to fail, be afraid to not try.”
