Hi! I'm Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter.. I'm called The Big Game Hunter because I've been
hunting down leaders and staff organizations for more than 40 years
today I want to help you open your eyes if they aren't already open to a
different possibility with where you going to work. Now many of us, I know, I
was and I know a lot of people i talked with are conditioned to the idea of
going to work for the big behemoth company the mid-sized firm you know the
well-established organization doing well in its field why because it's symbolic
of stability now if you could see the top of my head I'm scratching it right
now why because if you haven't noticed there's no stability in the world right
now there wasn't a government in the world that isn't cutting back on people
or talking about cutting back on people there wasn't a substantial organization
any size whatsoever that isn't talking about cutting back on staff however
there is one organization that seems to be the type of organization that seems
to be offering interesting potential startups text types in particular why
real simple number one is some of them are involved with changing the world
A well-capitalized startup, you're going to work like a beast and
when you're in your 20s 30s and sometimes beyond that's not a bad thing
You enjoy your work. You love what you do. You get involved with it dramatically
and it's a great opportunity to become an expert in to craft most of us myself
included want to do interesting work and work with brilliant people we want to be
challenged all the time we don't want to become drones on the third floor of a
big building where no one knows who we are except the person in the next cube.
all we want is an opportunity to change things to make a difference to do things
that are important startups going to offer that kind of potential now in the
realm of stability the interesting thing about
startups is often they're now being targeted for what are called aqua-hires.
now it's not necessarily that the product is so great and it ever gets to
the point where it really scales to change the world like a Facebook or
Google or Microsoft before that but the team is acquired everyone profits
through the acquisition you have a chance to learn by going to work for the
new parent, often meeting new people with whom you go into business with yourself.
so consider another possibility open your eyes to the possibility of
exploring startup organizations and see if there's you know there's a root for
success for you with one. So this is Jeff Altman. I hope you found
