OUR RECRUITMENT PROCESS

 

WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR:

eTower is looking for individuals that are genuinely interested in the topic of entrepreneurship, as well as being team players that are active participants of our community. It’s not necessarily where you are now, but what kind of upward trajectory and potential you possess as an entrepreneur and community member. It's about your willingness to learn new skills, take risks, contribute positive energy, build community with others, and be an awesome person to live with. While there is no requirement to run your own business or have a venture idea, our residents all aspire to be entrepreneurial leaders in their own ways. Our core values that we live by and look for in our applicants are family, empathy, diversity, growth, innovation, and passion.

ZOOM SKILLSHARE

Once you apply, you'll get an email that contains more information about the skillshare. Our skillshare event is where applicants get to present ANY skill they want to. We've had past applicants talk about different marketing skills, how to take cold showers, how to spot a fake sneaker, and many more.

ZOOM Interviews

After you do the skillshare, you'll get an email that contains information about our zoom interviews. Our interview process is unique because you interview with everyone in the community. This gives us a chance to get to know you better and it gives you the chance to meet everyone. Every interview with different residents is different and fun.

That's it!

After interviews, we will reach out and notify you of the decision.

Frequently asked questions

Do I need to have a business or current venture to join eTower?


This definitely helps and may come naturally to many of our applicants, but the truth is you do not need to have a business or current venture to apply or live in eTower, nor does everyone in our community have their own startup or venture. Our requirement is that residents are either pursuing their own venture, working on another venture, or actively building entrepreneurial skills. Also, community fit is very important. You could have an incredible startup or idea, but if you are not interested in being an active community member, eTower is not the place for you. We personally believe that our businesses are strongest when we work and grow together, not as separate individuals. We are constantly intermeddling between each other’s ventures and ideas, and how we can improve and help each other.




What is the application process like?


Our application process starts with our application opening on Wednesday, February 17th and closing on Saturday, February 27th. Then you are encouraged to attend the information session where you will meet current residents as well as other applicants. Once your application is submitted, you then move on to a very exciting part of our application cycle: skillshare. You will present to our community for five minutes a unique skill that you think would help us know you more as an applicant. After skillshare, you will interview with every single resident in our community on Wednesday in a spirited interview process. Finally, we will deliberate and deliver our decisions. Here is the timeline: Info Session: Thursday 02/25 Application Due: Saturday 02/27 Skillshare: Monday 03/01 Interviews: Wednesday 03/03 Results: Thursday 03/04




What does a typical week look like, and what is the approximate time commitment I am expected to commit when joining eTower?


Every week, we have internal resident’s meetings generally before or after our weekly guest speakers. Then, we have workshops or professional hot seats on the weekends, as well as weekly accountability group meetings. Approximately, this is about 4 hours of recurring events that are mandatory to all residents, but optimally, your involvement is much greater than just being present at these functions, as living in this community is dynamic, spontaneous, and fun!




What is the best thing I can do to become a part of eTower’s community?


The best thing you can do is first to possess a desire for growth and exploration in entrepreneurship, and then to interact with our community. Having these qualities makes eTower the right place for you to grow in an awesome community. You then want to meet as many of the resident’s as possible and get to know what they do and share what you are interested in/working on. There are many ways to go about interacting with our community like attending our Wednesday Speaker Events and getting to know our residents personally. However, please keep in mind that we are all in different stages of our entrepreneurial and personal growth journey, so there isn’t any kind of hierarchy for achievement and/or success. eTower is all about entrepreneurship for all! It’s your interest and potential to be a great entrepreneur and community member that we evaluate for.
