How to Get a Startup Job Abroad

Matheus Riolfi

"Startups don’t have a structured recruiting process, so you must find the right targets and bring your own chair. Since this requires a lot of work, focus on your top three cities before you start your search."

A People Ops Veteran on Navigating the Gnarliest Conversations

Meg Makalou

"They were left to think, ‘I'm working like crazy, giving everything I have to this startup, because that's what early-stage organizations need, and this person is clearly under-performing. Why are they still here?’"

Alfred Tom

"When is the official start of the contribution accumulation?  If you're a "business guy" and you've been trying to sell your idea for the past year with no tangible results, you'd be hard pressed to convince a technical co-founder that the date should start a year ago."
