Senior roles in the Valley have headhunters but you need to be in SF. And if you’re already out there, then you would know as everyone is connected. In NY, not many big roles for headhunters to actively work on, plus the startups won’t pay those fees. So best to go to events that the company you want to work for attends and just start networking. WeWork has a bunch of parties and a lot of these startups started there and still attend. Make sure you’re in the scene first, there’s a ton of social opportunities.


Most of the time you apply to the company directly, they don’t work with headhunters.


I went in-house at a startup. Great money. Really bored. Left for a much better job and much better work for less money.
