Consulting

Applying to a position at an alpha phased startup. They are looking for someone who has startup experience in addition to other skills. I don’t have startup experience but I am pretty proficient in the other skills department. Anyone who successfully transitioned to a startup environment willing to share resume tips on how they convinced the hiring committee? Help a brother out 🙋🏻‍♂️

Just know that there is no “hiring committee” and you really just have to 1. have a pointed enough resume to get a call 2. seem like someone the people hiring you would want to be friends with on the calls
