You launched your startup

20 mars 2017 , team HFA

Once upon a time, you decided to become an entrepreneur.

Launching a start-up seemed obvious : you had a great idea, enough funds to cover your needs at least for a year, and you were ready to work hard day and night to make it work.

3 years later, it is over.

 

You have priceless skills and valuable competencies.

 

You failed, you stood up but what you can get out of this experience is that you learned the hard way.

You applied both what you learned at school but also real-word skills : project management, P&L management, funds raising, recruitments, management, administration, etc.

You do not want to start a new project, but you’re willing to commit to a new project minus all the risks. Thus, you are looking for a job.

You are activating your network but the problem is :

• They can’t offer you an adequate salary for you to be finally « stable ».

• You do not fit in any boxes, that’s a good thing : we are specialized in « out-of-the-box » profiles.

• « Classic » and big companies just do not appeal to you.

 

👉🏻 What to do after the entrepreneur life?

 

 

F.A.Q. of entrepreneurs

 

#1 You do not know which position would suit you

HIGH FLYERS SOLUTION > We only offer positions with strong entrepreneurial dimension, in fast-growing companies : ambition and adaptability is needed. You will be able to commit to a challenging entrepreneurial project minus the risks.

 

#2 You are afraid that your project's failure will be badly perceived

The reality > Mindsets evolved. You have to rationalize what happened and focus on the positive input : what did you achieve? What did you learn? What mistakes did you make? And the mistakes might be the most important things to remember.

HIGH FLYERS SOLUTION > We have seen thousands of ex-startuppers. It is your role to give a good pitch and make your profile coherent. Writing a medium post about it could be a start, but you need to embrace your failure and make it an asset. We will take care of explaining your career to companies’ top management.

 

#3 You are not specialized enough

The reality > That is true. You have a unique profile and so what?

HIGH FLYERS SOLUTION > Our mission : to structure your profile, to define your skills and convince the top management you are the match.

 

#4 You are afraid to lose your autonomy

The reality > During your entrepreneur life, your boss were you and only you. You were in charge of your team, your schedule, your project.

But the reality was different : you were completely chained up to your clients, partners, employees… and your cash. Not that worry-free, right ?

HIGH FLYERS SOLUTION > We offer you added value positions with strong perspectives. You will have to deal with high objectives (but achievable). You might be supervised but you will mostly be supported in your effort. You will be completely independent in your daily work.

 

#4 You are going to get bored in a company

The reality > Hasty generalization. You might find and extremely appealing corporate jobs. You might want to consider then judge.

HIGH FLYERS SOLUTION > Our secret : we work hands-in-hands with our client’s CEO and top management. We have a completely different mindset and only work with fast-growing companies with a similar mindset. Their core business will always be appealing, challenging, ambitious. Therefore, the missions will never be boring.
