Focus on startups

Startups are awesome places to break into. You’ll learn super fast! You also don’t need a special degree to land a job. Show your excitement and your hunger to learn. (Good to quickly learn a tech tool, too).

See our 23-page Guide to Startups (pdf)

“The great thing about growth-focused companies is that they have no choice but to demand growth from team members. Each new phase of the company is different, and you’ll be exposed to  different challenges, tasks, and types of work.”

Quote of the Day
