Those of you who visit regularly, or who subscribe to our automated email alerts, know firsthand that there are thousands of job openings at venture backed companies with hundreds more added each week. One compelling aspect of the venture ecosystem is that certain companies eventually break ahead of the pack. Identifying these companies is of course a difficult task; however, hitching your career to a rising star can lead to phenomenally positive results – rewarding work, career advancement, endless opportunity, and financial wealth.
