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.
