It’s nothing new to announce that you’re looking for a new gig. And maybe it’s just happenstance. Or maybe it’s just the new year. But I’ve had a couple of tweets in my stream lately featuring talented folks who are looking for a new job. Likes and retweets will only go so far — and knowing how critical finding good talent is — I thought I’d share a few of them here. (And if there are others I should include, please let me know.)
It’s almost the new year. And for many folks, that means it’s prime time to search for a new job. If you’re in that boat, there are a number of startup companies — and established companies like Nike and Stumptown — that are looking to hire.
It’s that time of year. Where everyone starts ramping up the discounts to inspire more of that holiday cheer when it comes to spending. Well, Silicon Florist didn’t want to be left out. So we’re offering up a discount of our own: 50% off any job posts or job post packages through Friday.
There have been any number of fundraising announcements in the past two weeks. And as compelling as that news is, it’s even more exciting to see the companies putting that money to work. Like Rigado, for instance. Which recently raised $15 million. And that led to a bunch of open jobs. Like nine of them.
As the end of 2017 approaches, it’s only natural to be thinking about the new year. And new opportunities. For some folks, that may be considering a new role, a new job, or a new town. For others, it may be seeking some new employees. Or a cofounder. Whatever the case, so long as it’s in Portland or nearby, the Silicon Florist job board has got something for you.
As we meander our way toward the end of 2017, it’s only natural that our thoughts stray to the future. To what you might do. To 2018 and beyond. And for many folks, that means assessing their current job. And maybe, just maybe, considering something different for the new year.
You’re building an awesome company. And to continue to do that, you need awesome talent. But you’re a startup. So you need to make the most of every dollar. Trust me. I totally get it. That’s why I’m getting in on the whole Cyber Monday craze and giving you a ridiculous discount on the Silicon Florist job board.
As the year draws to a close, we’re seeing a bunch of folks motivated by change. Changing locations, changing roles, or changing careers completely. Luckily, there are a bevy of interesting Portland companies standing by with new roles to help make those transitions easier.
Truth be told, I can’t even spell entrepreneurship. (I used spellcheck for that.) But there are many folks who can. Among them, there are even a few who understand all the ups and downs of the rollercoaster that is starting a business. And among them, are a select few who recognize and understand the potential impact government can have on startup ecosystems. And Business Oregon wants to talk to those folks.
It’s getting to be that time of year. That time when you start looking back on what you’ve accomplished. And start looking forward to what you want to be doing in the future. Where you assess your progress. And set some new goals for yourself…. Or maybe I’m just overthinking it and you’re just tired of your current job. Or your current town. Or whatever.
