Twenty years ago, your parents would have scoffed at the idea of you graduating college only to pursue a job at a startup. Stability. Benefits. Growth. This is what they’d say to push you into the corporate world. And historically, they’d be right. Working in “Corporate” does have its upside. Comparatively, starting your career at a startup comes with uncertainty and risk. But the generation Y is ready to take this risk head-on. According to different surveys around the world, just 15% grads said they would “prefer” to work for large corporations. Sorry moms and dads. With about 400,000 startups launching each year, many first-time workers are faced with a tough decision: Should I go the safer route and pursue a job with an established corporation or sign with a startup?
We rolled the dice for you to give 10 reasons to choose a startup as your dream career.
1. Greater opportunity
2. License to innovate
3. An impressive job title
4. Awesome work environment
5. Make a difference
6. Age is no barrier
7. Learn to be self-sustainable
8. Work with passion
