About This Event

Fast growing startups have arguably become the most attractive places to work. They provide almost unprecedented pathways for personal growth, autonomy, impact, and even the opportunity to become wealthy. But breaking into the startup world can often seem frustrating and confusing.

Topics we will cover

  • What exactly is a startup and when is it advantageous (or not) to work at one
  • All the startup jargon you’re too afraid to ask about
  • What are the most popular roles
  • Disclaimers, pitfalls, and things to watch out for
  • Cultural differences and what to prepare for
  • 5 tried and true steps for landing a startup job

What will the remote learning experience be like?

  • Ask questions and interact with peers and expert instructors — all in real time. Collaborate via live chat, voice, and video.
  • Gain accountability and guidance from your instructor and fellow classmates to help you turn skills into career success.

Preparation

  • A laptop is required for this workshop with Excel installed (any version 2007 or newer on PC and any version 2016 or newer on Mac)
  • For those on Windows, you’ll need Microsoft Windows 7/8/10 (32- or 64-bit). For those with Macs, you’ll need the Mac OS X 10.8.5 or higher, up to 10.11.4 (El Capitan). Upgrade your operating system before class, if needed.
  • Strong internet connection.

About the Instructor

Matthew Cynamon Photo

Matt Cynamon is the founder of The Contrarian, a new media company that helps you break through your social media echo chamber by sending you the best, substantive articles that challenge your existing point of view.

Prior to The Contrarian, Matt spent nearly five years at General Assembly. As one of GA's first employees, he had the privilege of playing around in many parts of the business. He started GA's operations in London where he served as the Regional Director for the UK for 2.5 years. He also served as GA's Global Alumni Director where he was responsible for building out programs to support the long term success of GA's 40K person alumni base. After leaving GA, Matt has stayed involved by teaching a monthly class on "How To Get a Job at a Startup", as well as hosting a monthly event series that explores how different industries are changing and what you can do to prepare yourself to stay ahead of the curve.

In addition to The Contrarian, Matt also consults and advises early stage growth startups. Finally, and mostly just for fun, Matt spends the time he has left as a career coach.
