How to Work for a Startup
Alison Hunter, Raines International
Simon Lewis, Michael Page
Diane Magri, SolomonEdwards

There are many reasons to work for a startup. Some have been downsized from large corporations and are looking to transition into a different career, while others simply prefer to run their own shop and avoid the bureaucracy of large & middle market firms. 
Regardless, there are considerable employment opportunities, since economic growth has been largely fueled by the startup and small business sectors, which frequently need the know-how of experienced executives and the dynamism of young managers who wish to build a firm from the ground up. As a consequence, major recruiting firms have become increasingly involved with startup and small businesses, given the significant role these sectors play.

The event will focus on the following topics, among others:
    Road map for finding employment in the startup sector
    Aspects of transitioning to startups & small businesses from large corporations
    Where to look, resources to make use of, how to find companies you can help
    Jobs typically found in the startup world in terms of seniority and compensation
    Employment contracts, in particular how they differ from corporations
    Working for owners and managers who may be considerably younger than you
