How to Find Work With a Startup: Job Boards | No BS Job Search Advice
When you apply to a startup, you’ll most likely be asked to fill out a short application. Startup work is often highly team-oriented and growth-oriented, so it’s important to consider what types of work you enjoy and can do. In addition to focusing on your current skills, think about your experience and your hobbies to see if these qualities align with the startup’s culture. After all, it’s not always about your resume, it’s about proving your fit for the startup’s values.
One way to connect with startup leaders is to start by researching startup companies in your area of expertise locally and globally. Start by identifying companies that are in your field and related industries. Find out what their mission is, what they’re looking for, where they’re located, and whether they’re willing to hire a remote worker. Additionally, note what stage of business each startup is in. The different stages require different types of candidates.
The best startup-focused job search website is AngelList, where you can apply to over 74,000 jobs in one application. To make your profile public, you must create an account. Once you’ve registered, you’ll have access to all the startup-related job listings. You can search by job title, company, or co-founder. Another option is to create an account on Co-FoundersLab, a site where potential entrepreneurs search for co-founders.
Aside from the salary, bonuses and options, a startup job can also be emotionally rewarding. Even executives in their later stages of their careers should consider working at a startup. If you’re considering joining one, be prepared to work long hours, stretch your comfort zone, and probably fail a lot. Those who choose this path should take the time to consider what kind of company they want to join, and what kind of role they’d like to play within it.
