While you may have aspirations of starting your career in the tech world at a place like Google or Facebook, your best bet for finding a job may actually be at mid-sized tech companies that are gaining momentum.
Companies like Warby Parker and Slack may not have revenue in the billions like Google just yet, but they already have a cult following and billion-dollar valuations that will likely project them to even bigger and better things. Why wouldn’t you want to be on board for the ride?
