So you’re graduating from CU-Boulder this Saturday and you’re looking to strike out in the world of the employed — or maybe you’re just looking for a career change. Regardless, we wish you the best of luck, and have gone ahead and compiled five entry-level jobs that are looking for qualified candidates right now. Get your suit or dress pressed, because you’re going to an interview soon:
What you’d do: You’d be responsible for generating new sales leads for the company utilizing outbound phone calls and emails.
Why it’s cool: Alternative Technology Solutions is opening a Boulder office and you’d be in it. Not only is working in Boulder fun, but being amongst the first in the new office is even better. You’d also be working on their Salesforce Software Application, which is also pretty sweet.
Who they’re looking for: Someone with a bachelors degree and 1-4 years sales experience.
What you’d do: Sales, sales, sales. You’d be making a ton of phone calls, looking to uncover sales opportunities. If you don’t like talking on the phone, this isn’t a job for you.
Why it’s cool: The company itself is cool, and provides all-in-one software for fitness businesses – stuff like membership management, scheduling, website templates, etc. But, more importantly, the benefits are top-notch. There’s an option to have 100% company paid health insurance, life insurance and long-term disability insurance. There’s also a monthly fitness stipend, paid time off for volunteer work, and a kid’s playroom. Actually, there are too many perks to mention here, so click over to the job listing and check them out.
Experience desired: A bachelors degree, a silver tongue and thick skin.
What you’d do: SpotXchange is looking for a Software Quality Engineer who can help out a software team in their Westminster, CO office. You’d work on a Scrum team of 4 to 5 developers.
Why it’s cool: The office is fast-paced, but casual. There’s a quarterly hackathon, unlimited paid-time-off, and a foosball table. What’s more, the company doesn’t believe in hiring based on a cultural fit – so capable oddballs may apply.
Who they’re looking for: Someone with experience in one of the following: PHP, Java, .NET, Python and a creative, open mind.
What you’d do: Innovation Pavilion is a startup incubator that provides office space and services to startups. You’d be working with the Branch Manager to perform marketing and administrative tasks – as well as anything else that comes up.
Why it’s cool: You’ll get to work with a diverse array of startups and entrepreneurs, which is sure to keep you on your toes. You’ll also get experience helping create marketing collateral like flyers and brochures, and with email marketing.
Who they’re looking for: A friendly person with good communications skills and an eye for detail.
What you’d do: PaySimple is looking for someone to fulfill the traditional ‘lead generation’ role – that means you’d be responsible for identifying, initiating and nurturing relationships with potential sales opportunities.
Why it’s cool: This is a great opportunity to have a high profile position at a fast growing company with little previous experience – you get to talk to A LOT of people. They currently have five openings for the position, and they’re looking to hire ASAP.
Who they’re looking for: Someone with 1-3 years of experience in sales and a bachelors degree.
