Are you looking to break into an exciting, innovative, up-and-coming company?

Whether you’re a recent graduate or an experienced professional, diving into the startup scene can be intimidating. That’s why we’ve partnered with General Assembly to assemble a panel of industry experts from three successful startups:

- Kate Furst, Senior Vice President of Operations at Zola;

- Hannah Ma, Vice President of Business Development at Propel;

- Allison Page, Founder and Head of Product at SEVENROOMS.

They’re ready to share their stories, answer your questions, and tell you everything you need to know about how to land an opportunity that’s perfect for you.

What You'll Take Away: Anecdotes and advice from three successful, innovative women founders/executives. How to position yourself when applying to non-technical startup jobs. Interview dos and don’ts and an inside look at how these companies interview. How to network like a pro in the startup scene — and more!

Why It Matters: When it comes to startups, there’s a lot to consider — everything from fundraising rounds to open offices to that ambiguous “culture fit.” But breaking into the scene doesn’t have to be daunting, even if you have a non-technical skillset: there’s room for everyone, and your background, experience, and perspective are valuable. These three experts will give you the low-down on what life is really like at a fast-growing startup, what their companies look for in new hires, and what they’ve learned in their careers (so far).
