Startup & Entrepreneurship Fair

This event brings together the most entrepreneurial and innovative students at Boston College. All students, no matter what major or college, who are seeking internships and/or full-time positions at startup companies are welcome. The Startup Fair is the go-to event for motivated individuals looking to earn more than just a salary and become a part of a growing enterprise where they can make a significant contribution.  We hope to expose students to the wide array of potential career opportunities that exist in various emerging industries. No dress code, relaxed atmosphere, and more opportunities for organic conversation.

Here are some reasons why a job at a startup could be perfect for you:


Learn By Doing

Working at a startup typically involves a ton of on-the-job learning. Challenge yourself in a fast-moving and changing environment. A small company can give you the opportunity to be more of a “jack-of-all-trades” and gain experience doing many different tasks. Learn something new every day from a small team of passionate and intelligent startup whizzes who can inspire you to do something new and different.


Work With An Awesome Team

At a startup, you will often be surrounded by a high concentration of smart and interesting people who love to experiment, innovate, and make new things. Feel like an integral part of the team and find some great mentors who can help you in and outside the workplace. Many times at a smaller company you also get the opportunity to learn from and interact with higher level management on a closer level.


Make An Impact

As a member of a smaller team your work will stand out and make a greater impact. Challenge yourself to take on more responsibility and know that what you do matters.


Have Fun

Join the Boston startup community -- full of fun and passionate dynamos who love what they do. Enjoy becoming friends and working closely with your small team while dressing casually for work. The work is serious, but that doesn’t mean it has to be dull!
