Austin Belcak loves his job in New York City at Microsoft, where he manages digital advertising projects. But what’s attracting more public attention is his side gig as a job search expert. What Austin does through his firm, Cultivate Culture, is help recent grads to use “unconventional strategies” to snag jobs at leading tech companies — just like he did.
Austin has come a long way since he graduated college in 2013, without connections or experience in the tech sector. To make the leap to a top company in a major city, he spent a year researching every aspect of the recruiting process at leading companies. And then, he says, he went through the process himself, snagging more than 50 interviews and multiple offers.
On this episode, Austin will share tips for pursuing jobs in world class companies, even if you’re starting out without the right experience or network.
