Hi all! I am currently in the job search process and would appreciate any advice/help.
My name is Sri, and I am a recent GW grad. After graduating from GW last Spring with a degree in International Affairs and Economics, I joined a fellowship program - Venture for America (a selective two-year entrepreneurship fellowship that serves to create economic opportunity in American cities by mobilizing the next generation of entrepreneurs and equipping them with the skills and resources they need to create jobs). Through this fellowship, I was placed at The Lip Bar where I worked in product development. I handled quality assurance for the entire assortment for TLB,
managed the 2022 Holiday offerings for .com and all of our retailers (Target, Walmart, and Meijer) for TLB and Thread (a new Gen-Z focused brand for BIPOC that formally launched today), and helped out with product testing in focus groups and general market research/product innovation strategy.
I enjoy the innovation aspects of product development but would like to explore other opportunities in other industries or at larger startups.
These are specifics of industries and roles I am looking into:
Company Size: 100+ (mid-size)
Industries: Wellness, Sports, Entertainment, Tech, Women's Health/Sexual Wellness, Beauty/Fashion (focus on and prioritizing sustainability), Venture Capital
Roles within: Public Policy, Trust & Safety, CSR, DEI, Product Development, Product Innovation/Creative, Ops/Supply Chain Management
If any of you know of or have seen any relevant opportunities or know of anyone that would be a good person to connect with, please let me know.
Thanks so much!
