3 Give Feedback

Another way to make a good impression while looking for a job at a startup is to try its product or service. Loopholes in the service should be pointed out. “This gets 100% attention of the recruiter. There is no way this person will not be selected,“ added Kashyap.

4 Show Passion

for Work Passion for work is a certain draw, irrespective of your experience. “Startups are a growing sector with a huge potential. We look for passion in an employee rather than experience,“ said Tanuj Khandelwal, cofounder, TinyOwl.
