Feeling Geeky?

By Jessica Lyons


C'mon girls, celebrate your geekyness. It's pretty darn easy at GirlGeeks, the first online career, training and mentoring community for professional female techies--or wannabes.

The site caters to women in all stages of IT career development, from teens to moms, connecting beginning geeks with mentors and professional geeks with colleagues. Geekettes can ask experts for career advice and résumé tips, enroll in live interactive seminars led by IT leaders, chat with other novice and big-wig girl geeks, visit the bookstore and search a database of more than 130,000 high-tech jobs. It's fun, too, featuring interviews with Girl Geeks of the Week and the Geek-O-Meter survey, rating your geekiness from "Geekasauraus Rex" to "Geeccckk!" And the moss and purple color scheme--obviously designed by a chic geek--is to die for.
