Do you want to be a cog in the corporate machine of a big bank with 10,000 other people? Then no need to come to this talk. If you want to be a startup employee #2, 3 or 4 at the next Facebook — or be a part of the cool team at Gilt Groupe, GroupMe, Foursquare or Tumblr — you absolutely nee to show up.

Hear seed-stage investor Charlie O’Donnell of First Round Capital talk about job opportunities at growing startups and how to get hired. He will also discuss skills needed, risks, rewards, and the importance of personal branding.
