Join us tomorrow for the Iowa Startup Fair + Startup Job Crawl

Want to get to know Iowa startups better, or perhaps even get a job at one? Make sure you are in downtown Des Moines tomorrow, as the Iowa Startup Fair kicks off at 3:00pm-6:30pm, followed immediately by the Startup Job Crawl from 6:00-8:00pm. Whether you’re a freshman in college or you’re already in the workforce, come make connections with those in the startup space.

Here at Dwolla, we’ve hired driven, hard-working interns from the last two job crawls that are still with us today, the majority of whom are still in school. It was at this time last year that we met Mariah, a college freshman who’s helped out and been a rock star in every role possible. She is back working with us again this school year, and had this to say about the startup crawl:

“I went to the startup job crawl as a freshman in college, completely clueless to what it might have in store. It was one of the best decisions I’ve made since at school. From that evening, I have gained invaluable relationships and an internship that I love.”

Mariah already has more experience than the average college senior, as a sophomore.

As for me, I too started off my career as a Dwolla intern. My case may have been out of the ordinary (I was hired as an intern right out of college, became a part-time employee after a few days, and a full-time employee within a couple months), but it demonstrates the power of internships and making those connections. I was able to get to know the company better, while Dwolla was able to see where I would fit in best for them. Since then, we’ve hired a few other interns to join our team full-time, such as Max in Community Building and Nicole in Business Development.

Currently, we are looking to fill the positions that we have posted on our website. We look forward to meeting all of you attending!

Props to:

Silicon Prairie News  and Startup America have always been avid supporters of the local economy, holding events that focus on building and retaining talent here at home, while supporting entrepreneurs and startups with media and invaluable connections. We can’t thank them enough for all that they’ve done for us, and we are forever grateful to have such a strong backbone in our Midwest startup scene.
