Joining A Startup? 9 Reasons Why You Should Take The Plunge!

In the age of startups, more students and freshers are ditching career opportunities at the established corporates to explore their options in the newly found companies.

A trend, slowly picking its pace, is becoming the next major shift recorded in the graph of career, since the days of inflations. But what is it that is attracting this young budding talent away from corporate giants? Are startups that good an option?

Here are some reasons why one must take the plunge and work in a startup world instead:

#1. Greater Responsibilities

Working in a startup means you are working with a limited set of people, with each having a distinct role of function in the company. Thus, the lesser the number, the greater the responsibilities bestowed upon! This fact appeals to the younger masses who get attracted to the world of startups.

#2. Opens A Gate Of Opportunities

Working in a startup culture opens a plethora of opportunities for the employee to choose from. It gives you the freedom to experiment with your talent by opting for other fields and grow in the field that best suits your caliber.

#3. Try New Things

Unlike Corporate Giants, startups allow an individual to try new things by gallivanting into an area that interests them. It encourages them to move out of your comfort zone and try new things to keep exploring the potential of each other and the company in the market.

#4. Learn From The Best

With the advent of startups, many well-trained seniors and experienced employees resigned from Multinational Companies to serve startups and drive them on the road to success. Hence, the hierarchy here is smaller, with the difference between the best and the amateur limiting to one or two. Thus, you are directly getting trained under one of the best in the field, which the youth considers being far more achieving than a brand name on their CV.

#5. Work Gets Recognized

Startups know how to appreciate their staff, unlike big MNCs. They recognize you from the terrible work you delivered and encourage you to continue showcasing similar talent. Corporate giants do not recognize the hard labor put in by their employees to keep the company floating in the market.

#6. Friendly Atmosphere

There is no need to dress up in formals, as startups do not follow the corporate culture of dress code in office. The atmosphere at startups is so relaxed and soothing that at times one can confuse it with that of a college classroom. All work in alliance with each other, respecting each other’s experience but not getting suppressed in the formal, structured atmosphere like that of corporate companies.

#7. Learn To Be Frugal

One thing not good about startups is that it does not offer a good salary, teaching the promising talent to learn the significance of money in life. The constraint in these new based organizations serves as a lesson for the younger talent that money is earned with hard labor and dedication. Something that the corporate companies do not offer to teach!

#8. Teaches You Hard Work

A startup is not just a place of growth and opportunities but also a place where the employer wants its employees to be hard-working, self-sustainable and dedicated to achieving their monthly targets and mission. The startup culture molds the talent to become sincere towards their work and inculcate a strong sense of work ethics in them, which will be beneficial for the longer run.

#9. You Get 'Real' Work

Unlike a Corporate Giant that hands out trivial work to their fresher’s in the initial few days, the startup companies expose them to the real world. It hands over real, productive work and expects its employee to be well acquainted with the work to begin its services towards delivering efficient returns to the company.
