Who can better tell you what to expect during the program then the students! Every now and then we will share their experience. Where do they professionally come from and where are they now.
This week we listen up to Bram (Growth Hacking @ The Talent Institute)
“After graduation (Sport Marketing – Bachelor of Applied Science) I couldn’t find a job that fitted my educational background. So I started working at a clothing store for a short period, just to get some income. But as it wasn’t challenging me (my brains) I decided to do something else. Before joining the B. Startup School Amsterdam I did a non-paid intern at a just launched startup called Brixer. My motivation overruled having a steady income. I believed I had to start somewhere to grow my network.
During this internship I faced a few disappointments: my 4 years of study didn’t fit the skills the startup/market needed. I didn’t had the knowledge to help the startup grow. I wasn’t able to add value to the company, as I wanted to. This caused a lot of de-motivation and made me realize I needed to gain the essential skills before entering the startup world.
