I searched Boston.com jobs link- see http://www.boston.com/jobs/city/ and there are over a few hundred jobs at organizations which are mostly educational, health related, or finance hiring in Boston. The jobs range from sales to web design, market analysis to scientific research. It’s exciting to see so many diverse options available in Boston itself. For those of you who want a career change, you should look at this site as see which options could be a fit for you. In addition to listings on this site, I have been getting requests from life sciences and clean tech companies for individuals with grant writing experience. If there are any ONEin3ers who have grant writing experience, let me know (Lauren@propelcareers.com) so that I can update you on opportunities which could be a nice fit for your skills.
This is the first in a series of blogs that I will be writing for ONEin3Boston to share insights on career paths, internships, full time jobs, and trends relevant to these areas. In short, I’ll be one of your guides to Humpday Jobday!
All of us ONEin3ers are fortunate to be living in Boston because there is so much entrepreneurial activity in a variety of sectors including technology, life sciences and clean tech. We’re really in a hotbed of innovation and startups. Right now, we have countless opportunities to meet new people and to learn about the emerging companies that form every day.
For startups and established companies in technology, life sciences and clean tech, many different skill sets are needed all the way from pure technical skills to sales and marketing, finance and administration, graphic design and web design – and this is just a sampling. These companies place a premium on hiring young people who can solve problems, are eager to learn and multi-task, and who can work in a dynamic team environment.
