Interested in working for a startup? It won't be your typical 9 - 5 office job, but working for a startup company can be exciting, fun, rewarding and the opportunity to get in on the ground floor of a new endeavor.
What's the best way to get hired? Job search engine SimplyHired.com got the inside scoop on getting hired at a startup from Ryan Sapper, the Head of Recruiting for TaskRabbit (TaskRabbit is hiring, by the way). Here are a few highlights:
- You don't necessarily need specific experience, but you do need energy, enthusiasm and passion, so highlight your transferable skills.
- Research to understand the company's space in the market and the competitors, and don't be afraid to (casually) show what you know during the interview process.
- Double check the dress code before your interview. At most startups, business casual is the most formal attire you'll see in the office, so a suit isn't always the best bet.
