Ready to get started? First things first, complete this form to let Stillwater Consulting know you’re interested. Next, describe your business idea in one of two ways.
Option 1: Create a short video of three minutes or less. Make sure to include:
- A little bit about yourself.
- What’s your business idea? (Still working it out? No problem. Just give us the general gist of what you’re thinking of).
- Why is there a need for this kind of business?
- Why should Stillwater Consulting choose you? (Don’t be shy here. Brag away.)
Keep in mind, candidates are evaluated based on their business idea, NOT on video editing skills! Using a phone to record is absolutely fine. Once complete, upload the video online (YouTube is great) and email a link to firstname.lastname@example.org along with a copy of your resume by August 29, 2021.
Option 2: Complete the Online Application Form.
Not comfortable in front of the camera? You can alternatively choose to complete the online application form at this link. Once you’ve complete the form, you’ll also want to email your resume to email@example.com by August 29, 2021.
