“I liked that they didn't hold our hands through the process. They gave us things to do but we had to figure it out as we went along. I also was able to meet a lot of successful people and was able to grow my network.”
“I originally saw this position from a Career Services email in August before I got back to school. I was entering my senior year and knew I needed to be working throughout the year to gain experience for when I graduate. I applied to the position and interviewed with the Program Director, James Shomar on campus. After receiving the offer, James took a generous amount of time out of his schedule to explain everything about StartFast and the type of work that I would be doing. This was so helpful and was a great transition into a field like venture capital that I had no previous experience in.
Over the course of the year I have enjoyed everything that I have been doing for StartFast. I was able to do such a variety of different tasks that it is so challenging for me to constrict it to only a few bullets on my resume. I can talk endlessly about how insightful it has been working with James and how much I have learned. He always made sure that I was gaining experiential learning while being productive in the work that had to be done. I had freedom of testing different strategies and always received great feedback about what was working the best to prioritize time into. ”
