Anyone looking to get into startup jobs in Boston? I work for a skills accelerator called Startup Institute that trains it's students in relevant skills to get them employed at high growth companies in the tech scene. I came to this job because a friend who graduated the program was trained here, and had great luck with finding work after because of the skills he picked up. He was a fellow NS'er (mainelandcollab) as well.
There are four areas of study, Web Design (front-end), Web Development (back-end), Digital Marketing, or Sales/account management.
The different classes all work together for 8 weeks. You receive training from our partners who are professionals in their designated field at start up companies currently. Much of the course is learning the skills needed to be proficient in these areas, but equally as important, all of the training you need in networking, job searching, and just generally skills needed to be successful in this field of work (working collaboratively, working in early stage companies that need processes and problems to be defined etc.)
If you're not sure what to do after college, or feel stuck in a stagnant company, shoot me a message. It may be a good fit. Even if this program isn't, if anyone is interested in learning more about startups and how to work at early stage, high growth companies, pm me, happy to chat.
I learned about this program via NS and would love to pay it forward. Our community is uniquely skilled in working in non traditional environments and would love to help anyone on here find work they love.
