Hear about life in a startup during DMS Monday

Greetings DMSers. I hope you’re having a fantastic Thursday now that the midterm is behind you!

Monday we have a guest speaker, Colby L. Smith. Colby graduated from our program in 2013 and landed her first job out of college with a startup company. She’s now a social media and marketing specialist with the Melton Design Group where she is working on another startup project, the Outdoor Trunk.

Colby’s talk will focus on what it’s like to work for a startup company in your first job out of college. She’ll discuss strengths and weaknesses of making this type of leap and key questions you should ask during the interview process.

And, since she’s a social media and marketing specialist, you might pick her brain about how best to use these skills in the marketing section of your business plan.

Check out Colby on LinkedIn. Bring your questions.
