Getting a job at a small company

Most people think or dream of a job at a Fortune 500 company, but most jobs are actually in small or even Mom and Pop companies.

If you happen on an opening at a smaller place, ask yourself if you are willing to wear a lot of hats. Employees there need to pitch in and be self-starters--maybe even do their own scut work, such as fixing the computer or getting supplies.

You will need to work closely with others--the same others--all the time.

Since every customer counts at a smaller place--you need to be great at schmoozing.

And--I would add--smaller places may have issues coming up with whether they will offer health insurance--ask about it.

That man's office? Just joshing! It won't be that bad.
