Apply to join First Round’s Recruiter Track — A program for folks looking to make a career switch into tech recruiting

If that sounds like something you’d like to be a part of, apply here by 3/20.

What you’ll get from the program:

  • The fundamentals of recruiting, from job description to offer letter, taught by the First Round talent team and experts in the industry
  • An inside look into how First Round-backed startups hire
  • Hands-on practice! We’ll work on finding candidates for real roles throughout the program to practice sourcing and outreach
  • Guidance for future interviews to be the first recruiter at an early-stage startup
  • A community of other folks who are also interested in recruiting in tech, with opportunities to network, trade ideas, and practice building up your new skills
  • The potential to work directly with First Round-backed companies on a project basis upon completion of the program
  • A fast-tracked application to any First Round company that’s hiring a recruiter

What’s the time commitment?

  • Virtual sessions will be held every Tuesday, from 3:30–5:30 pm PT between April 5 — April 26, 2022, with optional electives in between.
  • We expect each student to attend every session and actively participate, and sessions will not be recorded. At the end of each session, we might have some “homework” for you to complete. We believe that practice makes perfect, and we’re here to give you a ton of experience so that you’re ready to take on the role of recruiter!

Who should apply?

  • Have 2+ years of general work experience
  • Are looking to make a career transition into recruiting at an early-stage startup
  • Love connecting people
  • Are a master-organizer
  • Triple-check your work
  • Take pride in your crisp and clear email communication
