Technology and Analytics – Upcoming Events, Opportunities and Resources

Hello Hoyas!

Have you wondered about the difference between working at a startup vs. a large company? If you have remotely considered a startup, you’ve heard one needs to “wear multiple hats.” This can be especially beneficial if you are still exploring what types of roles would be interesting to you in the tech industry (or really, any industry!). Because at a startup, you will have a chance to take on several roles and work on multiple projects. Yet, working for a larger tech company will let you dive deeper and build skills in a particular area, with a team, and with technical experts (and potential mentors) nearby. There are pros and cons to both environments; I encourage you to gain experience in both, if you can, to see and feel the difference. Read this detailed analysis of the pros and cons as it relates to internships, written by Anjini Karthik, who interned as a Software Engineering and Product Manager in three companies of various sizes. Or, check out this article if you prefer a quicker read. To understand the pros and cons from a full-time employment lens, read this article.

If you are interested in a startup environment, I encourage you to get involved with Georgetown’s Entrepreneurship program. Dip your toes in by reviewing their programs, signing up for their newsletter, and attending this virtual startup career fair on Nov 15, 5-7pm. If you are interested in working for a startup but unsure how to find startups of interest, schedule an appointment with me to discuss further.

All the best,
Jodi Schneiderman |
Assistant Director, Employer Relations and Industry Advising | Health, Science, and Technology
