Happy Flag Day! I don’t have a post on America’s biggest flag manufacturer or anything, but I’m sure that you’re ok with that. A big part of my job is staying up on the newest technology, trends, and turns of events. It’s not that I’m doing anything earth shattering, but if I want to be able to tell you where the most exciting entry level opportunities are, I need to be one step ahead of the economy. I need to have a feel for where growth is going to come from before everyone else already knows about it. This keeps me interested, and it gives me a good excuse to be an early adopter of things like Twitter and Foursquare. As important as it is for me to be constantly aware of what’s new, it’s even more important for the folks at Altimeter Group, which is a San Mateo, CA based company that “provides thought leadership, research, and advisory on digital strategies, with a core focus on how companies can leverage disruptive technologies.” A lot of the top talent at Altimeter came from Forrester Research, so there are some similarities between the firms; however, Altimeter Group puts a much bigger focus on how companies should actually use technology (whereas Forrester issues reports about said technology).
When you’re searching for a job, it’s fun and easy to embrace new technologies. Nothing can disrupt you, because you’re flexible. But when you run a multi-million dollar business that has been around for a while, change can be scary. In a matter of months, your business model could be obsolete. Unfortunately for many people in business, there are plenty of things that take priority over staying current. They can’t do it on their own, so they hire help. That’s where the Altimeter Group comes in. Their “holistic approach to emerging technologies” helps their clients learn about and utilize new technologies in four areas: Leadership and Management, Customer Strategy, Enterprise Strategy, and Innovation and Design. These are traditional consulting areas, but the content that Altimeter Group covers is obviously non-traditional. If you’re an early adopter and want to help businesses overcome their fear of technology, then you should take a look at jobs at Altimeter Group. Right now they’re looking for an Entry Level Researcher. It’s a contract position that goes for three months with the opportunity to stay on permanently after. That shouldn’t really matter since by the time that you’re done with them, they’d be stupid not to keep you. The job descriptions does offer application instructions (and you should follow them), but I think that you’d be silly to ignore the accessibility of Altimeter Group’s leadership—they have contact info on the sidebar of every page on their site.
