About this Course
We all know that startups and small, developing companies drive job growth in our economy. At a startup, you could be the employee who is able to cash out your equity in five years for $1 million. In a small business, you can find a job that provides stimulation, variety, and opportunity–without spending years working your way up. In both cases, you’re likely to feel that your efforts matter and that you make an impact on the success of the company.
Despite so much growth in new and small business, traditional career advice is still structured towards large and corporate opportunities–it may not be relevant for those seeking a role in a startup. This course addresses that gap, and provides you with the resources and skills you need to successfully seek out a startup or small-business job opportunity, apply for it, and demonstrate your value to those hiring.
