I have been working at Skyrocket Ventures full-time
Being at Skyrocket Ventures has been a great working and learning experience so far. Each and every person who currently works here is great. It feels like a small family. They’re all genuine and caring toward one another and toward the clients they’re placing. The companies and candidates being recruited are top notch and we make many of them happy by bringing them together. Another benefit to working at Skyrocket is its location. The lake view from outside the windows is beautiful. You’re also able to walk outside to the balcony for a breath of fresh air overlooking the scenery. The owner of Skyrocket is a great mentor and very thorough in the training he provides. He constantly gives feedback that will help you succeed. He is extremely hardworking which will in turn benefit you because that work ethic will a lot of the time rub off onto you. The hours aren't really set in stone. It's not a strict 9-5 policy, although you may want to work extra as I will explain below. The dress code is also lax. Whatever you’re comfortable in right now is acceptable in office. If you feel good, you’ll perform well! Some of the events the company has are also an awesome bonus! From time to time there are also cool team building activities. These events and activities help bring everyone together as a tight knit group.
You get what you put in when working for Skyrocket Ventures. To see results quicker, you may want to work a little more than the traditional day. As long as you work hard, the results come. If you expect to take it easy, you probably won't reach your true potential and make the kind of money you really want to make. The environment rewards those who stay here for a while and work hard, but it takes a while before you see the results. If you plan on only working here for a year or two, it probably won't be worth it. Once you’ve been at Skyrocket Ventures for a good amount of time, you may feel it becoming robotic. This is a part of recruiting you’ll have to get used to no matter what role you play in the company. This job is probably not for someone who wants to use a lot of analytical skills. However, you should still be trying to “upgrade” and better yourself along the way. If you're uptight and can't have a good time while working hard, this job may not be for you. People who have a big ego or do not work well with others will not like working here. People who are set in their ways and are not coach-able or eager to learn will not do well here. In this job you face a lot more rejection than appreciation from candidates and clients. You'll have to overcome a lot of rejection in order to do a good job. Many recruiting companies out there are considered unethical or not very good at their job, thus making it harder for us to convince candidates or clients to give us an opportunity to work with them.
