Startup & Entrepreneurship Fair
Here are some reasons why a job at a startup could be perfect for you:
Learn By Doing
Working at a startup typically involves a ton of on-the-job learning. Challenge yourself in a fast-moving and changing environment. A small company can give you the opportunity to be more of a “jack-of-all-trades” and gain experience doing many different tasks. Learn something new every day from a small team of passionate and intelligent startup whizzes who can inspire you to do something new and different.
Work With An Awesome Team
At a startup, you will often be surrounded by a high concentration of smart and interesting people who love to experiment, innovate, and make new things. Feel like an integral part of the team and find some great mentors who can help you in and outside the workplace. Many times at a smaller company you also get the opportunity to learn from and interact with higher level management on a closer level.
Make An Impact
As a member of a smaller team your work will stand out and make a greater impact. Challenge yourself to take on more responsibility and know that what you do matters.
