Seen in the Fremont neighborhood, Seattle.
Pretty regularly, I have lunch/coffee/drinks with someone who is trying to find their way in the Seattle Tech Community. Typically, it’s someone with an idea for a startup. Although, these days, with the economy the way it is, often they’re looking for work at a tech company.
Here’s the thing: it’s easy to target companies like Microsoft and Amazon because everybody has heard of them. But, these companies have two big problems:
- Since everybody has heard of them, a gajillion people are applying for jobs there, and
- They’re big, giant corporations and that’s not a good fit for many people.
