Here's what you need to know to determine whether this event is for you.

Types of Companies

The Startup Talent Showcase consists of a mixture of:

  • Young, early-stage, pre-revenue startups
  • High-growth, cutting-edge technology firms
  • Corporate innovation labs

Startup/Innovation Culture

Working at a startup is not a traditional career path. Startups are fast-paced and ever-evolving. To be successful at a startup means being comfortable with ambiguity less structure than a corporate environment and having the willingness to take on what needs to get done.

3 Core Qualities of a Successful Candidate (in this order):
1) Attitude - Point me in the direction, I'll get it done
2) Aptitude - I'll pick up the skills & knowledge needed quickly and with little to no hand holding
3) Experience - I've been here before, I know what it's like, and I want to leverage those experiences into a new role

How It Works:

1) The STS is open for the following types of job candidates:

  • Students seeking internships
  • Junior professional looking to make the next move
  • Seasoned Executives looking to lead, run and grow an organization
  • Part time/Contractors who want project-based work

Very interesting job search concept. It forces one to build people skills, take some risk, and promote their individuality in person.

Everyone in the room was very friendly. They looked at me. They smiled. I thought the pitch element was great!
— Startup Talent Showcase participant
Incredibly easy and so convenient! After creating a profile, I was presented with listings of available startup jobs that coincided with my areas of interest. I was matched to multiple opportunities and only contacted by companies with mutual interest.
