Few things are more exciting than getting involved in a new project, working hard on it together with your teammates and seeing how it evolves and grows: that’s what happens when you work at a startup.
Working at a startup, you’ll move away from the boring “preset to-do list” into a world full of new challenges and possibilities. Yes, working at a startup is an adventure. Big companies have already done all the work and you just have to follow an established plan –your job is focused mainly on getting your assigned tasks done. At a startup, you will have to help create everything from scratch, imagine and develop the workflows that best fit the company, change and adapt them once and again.
For recent grads, working at a startup is a wonderful way to acquire experience and continue learning while doing real work in a dynamic environment. For experienced professionals, swapping from a corporate business to a startup is usually the best way to break years of routine, get new goals, regain passion and continue growing by using your knowledge to help create something new.
Are you still wondering what are the pros of joining a startup? At JobFluent, we’ve come up with 14 reasons to answer that ever so common question.
It’s almost 2016 and by now, every business is familiar with the huge opportunities available for them online. There’s no question online marketing is invaluable, and social media is one of its main tools. Not only does it help companies to connect with potential customers, it also allows them to establish conversations with people who may be interested in their products or services.
Aside from generating business, social media is also creating jobs. Positions like community manager, social media content creator or curator, social data analyst… are on the rise.

A brand is anything (a symbol, name or even a color) that separates and distinguishes something from the rest. Although the term has been used for companies and products, we must be aware that all of us have our own set of characteristics that differentiate us from the rest. We have our own personal brand online.
Now, having a personal brand is a huge responsibility that comes directly tied to our reputation. Think of it as your online birthmark. It allows recruiting managers or possible business partners to recognize you and choose you on a lineup!

Europe’s startup scene is thriving, which means that there are many startup jobs available here. Wouldn’t it be nice to work at a cool startup while exploring a new country? Well, many cool opportunities are rising on cities like Barcelona, Berlin, Amsterdam, Paris and London that may entice you to cross the pond. But, before you do, here’s what you need to know about the legal regulations for working in the European Union.
In general, to work as an employee in one of the EU countries you don’t need to apply to any work permit if you are a national from another EU country, any of the countries belonging to the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland.
If you are a citizen from a country outside the EU/EEA, willing to work in the EU, you’ll need to fulfill several immigration laws, that can vary from one country to another and may also depend on your nationality. Nevertheless, there are some common trends that apply in all the European Union countries, in particular those regarding high qualified workers, researchers and students.
A cover letter is not just a simple attachment to your resumé to make it look good — it’s your first opportunity to make a good impression in a more direct and personable way.
Your resumé already lists all the information about your education and work experience but your cover letter should give a brief introduction to your professional background. Also, you need to convince the hiring manager that you can be a great asset for their company and that you are really motivated to join them. Your cover letter can help you voice that.
Actually, a good cover letter may be even more important than your resumé in getting you a job interview… so, it seems reasonable to put some time and effort to make it perfect. In case you are asking yourself how to write a great cover letter, we have put together some tips that may help you to improve your job search results.
