Startups are hiring like crazy and often provide incredible opportunities for employees to make a big impact from day one. However, knowing that any new employee will be given this level of trust and responsibility means startups take a very cautious approach to hiring their next teammate. If you want to join an early stage venture, you'll need to do more than just think about how to target your resume.
The purpose of this workshop is to help you start thinking about all the ways you can make yourself the next perfect hire. From the very basics of finding out where your ideal team-mates spend their time, really wowing with your background, to understanding what recruiters find when they Google you- this information will help you craft your perfect candidate pitch.
You'll get real time feedback on your resume, elevator pitch, and tips for what to expect on the day of your interview.
