There are a lot of equity type job arrangements on https://www.reddit.com/r/cofounder/ and other places. For a guy like me who has savings and doesn’t mind working on one of these for the experience it seems like low hanging fruit to build job experience and a resume.
To be clear, the pay probably won’t be there, this would be a longer term play. I’d continue to job hunt while working at my job and list it as such on my resume. By the same token I treat my work seriously.
Are hiring staff generally wise to the low or unpaid nature of these micro startups, and punish them accordingly in their review? Or is this an easy in to develop demonstrable job experience?
If it depends, I’m interested in the dividing lines between good and bad job experience. I get the extremes (2 guys in a basement walking away from a bankrupt company bad, Google good). I’m not clear on anything else.
