This week on Career Crashers Joel is joined by Emily Cozzens, a partner success manager at PandaDoc!
Many people believe a job at a high-growth startup is completely out of reach unless you’re a superstar programmer or experienced marketer. The reality is that some great projects and initiative will go a long way to getting your foot in the door.
“I was astonished by how quickly I was able to put something together, and then be able to look back and see why this approach works so well.”
Besides helping you get your foot in the door, projects are also a really great way to learn, in general.
“The lessons weren’t just in ‘How do I build the Marketing thing?’ it was also in: ‘How do I tackle something huge?!”
In this episode, Emily shares how she used her early career experience working in a cheese store to develop great customer service skills and how taking initiative to create projects allowed her to win a great opportunity and advance quickly once she had it.
