Entrepreneurs 3. Accelerators blog and thoughts on Hiring Priorities
Filed under: Interviewing, Position Searching, Observ. Trends, Alternate Career Paths

Although the entrepreneurial spirit is recently
highlighted in ACS, it is honestly nothing new.

High risk, high reward opportunities on one’s
own or joining with others have been available
since high tech was high tech, and chemical
ventures had to split off from larger companies
or universities.

Take a look at a WSJ blog article on what start-up
mentors, Brad Field, Neil Blementhal and others
suggest.  It reveals behaviors job seekers might
consider and offers what they may find in their
interviews and first days on the job if offered
positions.

 - both culture fit and technical skill are important
[Preparation;  find out about the culture before
the interview.]

 - having failed ventures is good, if people learned
from them;  know your own talent level and what
you can contribute

 - job descriptions and company story need to be
dissected and tested ;  understand incentives.

 If you are interested in Entrepreneurial business
employment, the Accelerators Blog is a place to
peruse.
