14 Great Reasons Why You Should Work In a StartUp (fx)

  1. 1. WHY YOU SHOULD WORK IN A STARTUP 14 Great Reasons
  2. 2. I don’t know about you, but for me nothing is more exciting than getting involved in a new project, working hard on it together with my teammates and seeing it grow: that’s what happens when you work at a startup. If you are still wondering what are the pros of joining a startup I have come up with 14 reasons to join a startup versus taking on a corporate job.
  3. 3. Working at a startup is a great place to build upon your existing skill sets, gain experiences in many functional areas, and take on a tonne of responsibility. As the company grows quickly, so will your opportunities for career advancement. PERSONAL GROWTH - AKA - CAREER OPPORTUNITIES  #1
  4. 4. The entrepreneurial nature of a startup undoubtedly creates (and requires) a lot of passion which means you will be working with colleagues every day that have the same positive energy and excitement as you do. #2 REAL PASSION  
  5. 5. Get access to industry events, local meetups and build your professional contacts with like- minded professionals. This can go a long way when looking for recommendations or new career opportunities. #3 GROW YOUR NETWORK – EXPAND YOUR HORIZON
  6. 6. Strengthen your team-playing abilities as well as your self-sufficiency. Get the most out of the experience and develop your social skills by wearing many ‘hats‘  and making important decisions. #4 PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT 
  7. 7. Although working at a startup could mean a paycut compared to a cushy corporate job, there are other benefits worth considering including stock options (equity) which can have a huge upside for you if the company does well. If you get in the door early enough with a great startup, the upside can be life- changing. #5 SHARES OR STOCK OPTIONS 
  8. 8. #6 REAL TIME – REAL LIFE LESSONS   The innovative nature of a startup usually allows you to have close contact with the founders who are usually some of the best people to learn from. Also, expect to get a lot of exposure to the intricacies of the entire business operation.
  9. 9. Instead of the typical cubical scenario you’ll find in most large companies, many startups have creative work environments that are designed to feed your creativity and tap into the right side of your brain. Trade in your suit and tie for jeans and sandals. #7 ALL ROUND CREATIVITY 
  10. 10. Since most startups are small, you will have a chance to get to know your coworkers personally and create a bond with everyone on the team. Working at a startup is like being part of a close- knit family, where you can actually be yourself. #8 CULTURE VS CORPORATE PROTOCOL  
  11. 11. The challenges and opportunities at a startup constantly change which means you are forced to adopt new skills, take on new projects, and will likely never be bound to a dull, boring routine.  #9 LOTS OF JOB VARIETY
  12. 12. There’s a lot of work to be done but depending on your work’s perks, you could negotiate a very flexible schedule. Alternate working from home or even get Friday evenings off… #10 FLEXIBLE & DIVERSE WORK SCHEDULE  
  13. 13. Less layers to the CEO means there is more of a chance for opinions to matter. Moreover, the work you do at a startup makes a real difference and can have a significant impact on the success (or failure) of the business. #11 YOU CAN BE INFLUENTIAL
  14. 14. Startups are ever-changing and if you do your job well, you could fast track into a management position a lot quicker than an established company with a defined hierarchy. #12 FAST TRACK CAREER OPPORTUNITIES 
  15. 15. With team work comes team play! Startups are keen on building team relationships, which is great (not only) because free lunches and barbecues can become a regular activity. #13 FUN
  16. 16. You should consider joining a startup because it’s a unique experience to help build something and be part of its growth from the very beginning. This means living the high highs, low lows, and everything in between. #14 BE PART OF IT – MAKE IT ALL HAPPEN 
  17. 17. So, why wait? Don’t hesitate if you feel these 14 points speak to you. Apply today and always remember to hunt wisely! Uli
