You’ve always dreamed of working for one of those prestigious companies like Amazon, Apple, Facebook or Google, but you’re not sure if the skills you possess – or ones you’re developing – are what today’s tech startups are looking for.
To answer some of your questions, we caught up with tech startups across the country to talk about which skills they recommend students develop before beginning a career in technology.
“Within a startup, you don’t have an accounting, billing or HR department at your disposal,” said Dana Marlowe, principal partner at Accessibility Partners. “I would highly recommend that a (student) job seeker specifically state they’re willing to adapt to new roles at any whim and demonstrate their ability to wear a lot of hats.”
