Ever wanted to work at a startup but not sure where to start? Or perhaps banking and consulting don’t seem like the best fit but you’re not sure what other options you have. Come join Curtis and Samanee as they explain the process of getting an internship or job at a startup, from finding the right company, figuring out what role you want to do, how to network with startups, and how to get an offer. All majors welcomed! This lunch is specifically for non-technical folks who don’t want to be an engineer but still want to work in a startup.
All of our events are open to the public!
Curtis Stiles ’19 and Samanee Mahbub ’19 will be your workshop co-hosts!
