1/12/2013 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM


Startups are hiring like crazy and often provide incredible opportunities for employees to make a big impact from day one. However, knowing that any new employee will be given this level of trust and responsibility means startups take a very cautious approach to hiring their next teammate.

The purpose of this workshop is to help you start thinking about all the ways you can make yourself the next perfect hire.
