Now big tech companies, movies and series portray a side of a startup that’s very enticing and exciting, but when it comes down to it, what is the job? What is the position? and what value, will not only the company bring you, but what will you bring to the company?
When you’ve gone through some of these questions, you feel comfortable everything aligns, you’re the right fit for the company, and it only makes sense to move forward, well then…
...there’s no doubt that there’s definitely an entrepreneurial spirit and sense of excitement working in a startup and growing with a company to achieve its vision.
You can expect to not only grow with the company, but also to grow your own skills and experience. Some startups grow into companies which change an entire industry. Some become industry leaders of their own. "Team" is a big word in a company! Working in a team environment and a collaborative environment, being part of that excitement and reaching your company goals, and small wins along the way. Will it be easy? Definitely not, but nothing worth it, ever is. A startup can bring lifelong and meaningful relationships, and every individual has their part to play. Can you play your part?
Ultimately, working in a startup can be incredibly rewarding, but you’ll have to take the risk with you, along for the ride.
