There’s a significant chance that you, as a college student, don’t have a landline telephone number, and instead rely entirely on a cell phone. Besides being a recipe for irritating recruiters (they hate doing interviews with people on cell phones, but they don’t really have a choice, now do they?), this also means that you likely have no appreciation for the complexities of phone systems. Neither do we. Businesses spend boatloads of money on complex phone systems that include extensions, voicemail, paging, and other features. For large companies, such systems are a necessity, but for smaller businesses they are often a front to make the company appear more professional to its customers.
GotVMail Grasshopper is a startup that has created web-based phone management software that is affordable, easy to manage, and extremely flexible. Whether you’re a consultant named Gary (GotVMail’s mascot) or a college student starting a business in your dorm room, GotVMail offers tools that allow you to manage your telephone needs easily while looking like a real business.
We’re not sure if most of our readers understand how onerous phone systems can be, but believe us, they create a lot of headaches for people. GotVMail’s solution is excellent, and as we expand, we’ll definitely look into using it to manage One Day, One Job’s telephone needs (we barely use the phone at this point). As great as their product is, GotVMail’s website is even more impressive. They do a nearly perfect job of telling their story. Whether you are a customer or a job searcher, you will find what you’re looking for; in fact, their Careers section is as good as it gets. Whoa! That’s two days in a row that we’ve absolutely loved the careers site of the company that we’ve featured. Maybe employers are finally starting to get it. Anyways, we’ve highlighted some links below as usual, and we’ll refer you to those, since GotVMail explains themselves so well.
As the 66th fastest growing private company in the U.S. according to Inc. Magazine, GotVMail is quickly adding to their team. As of now all of the entry-level hiring seems to be going on in software engineering and development, but keep an eye out for new job postings in other areas. Currently, GotVMail is hiring for three positions that appear to require no prior work experience: C# .NET Developer (Needham, MA); C# / ASP.NET Software Engineer (Needham, MA); and C# / ASP.NET Software Engineer (Austin, TX).
We think GotVMail is a startup with great potential for success. If you’ve got the coding skills, now is the time to join their team. Or you could always do your own startup and hire them for your telephone needs. Either way they’re someone that you want to do business with.
Note: On April 25th we revisited entry-level jobs at GotVMail.
