It seems like every week, there’s a new startup with a mission to revolutionize the way we eat ice cream or make everyday tasks a little easier. Working with these young companies is a different experience when compared with working for a company like IBM or Nike, which have been around for quite some time and have an established presence in their respective markets. Understanding how they differ is the first step in figuring out where you would be a better fit.
Victoria Hood is the Social Media Content Developer for ThisWay Global in Austin, Texas. After leaving Texas A&M University, feeling like she didn’t quite fit, and then being stuck in one minimum wage job after another, the opportunity arose for a career shift into creating engaging, useful blog posts that would enable others to find the same fulfillment she did. Victoria has been working with ThisWay Global since January 2017 to prepare for SXSW Interactive.
