In India, after an accomplishment of graduation, one of the biggest concerns for graduates is an employment. Youngsters are usually in delirium whether they should go for corporates or startups. Few years back, there was hype for corporate jobs; still it is prevalent. But most of the intellectual students, without being a part of the race, are collaborating with startups. Students from IIT’s, IIM’s, and other eminent universities or colleges want to embark their professional excursions with startups.
There are numerous ventures which started on an extremely small scale, but now their expansion is breaking the limits. One of them is OYO rooms, started 3 years back; now, it has covered more than 120 cities in India. An outstanding and phenomenal growth, this small scale organization has shown with tremendous efforts of its team. Other renowned organizations which showcased the same growth are Flipkart, Amazon, Snapdeal, and a list goes on.

Candidate with innovative and creative ideas are preferred. They seek for the employees who can be resilient in the challenging situations. Candidates should be adaptable; they can mingle with diverse team members. Consequently, startups look for enthusiastic and potent employees.
A great number of students after college are opting for startups instead of corporate jobs. Now, what’s the reason behind this? There is no particular one reason, but various reasons are involved. Let’s discuss one by one in detail, and help our graduates, making the search process easy. College pass outs can refer to it while making the most prominent decision of their lives.
Growth and Development: If a person joins corporate, undoubtedly, she will get a nice package with numerous facilities. Companies like Infosys, TCS, HCL, etc. offer a great package to the new joiners; employees do not have any complaint about the monetary issues. However, lack of new opportunities and freedom are the constraints. A person with exploring mindset and creative soul feels the greatest threat to her potential with limited chances of growth and development in corporates.
Sense of independence: Working with startups provides a great sense of independence; the environment is less strained in comparison to corporates. Here, in small companies, an employee can showcase her multiple skills without hindrance. She can learn other skills and execute them also in the same company. For example: a writer can write articles, blogs, etc., and if she learns work of publishing, then she can be in the publishing team at the same time.
Valuable support: An intrinsic support is provided to the employees because management knows the value of skilled individuals. A fresher can work with utmost freedom without being pressurized by the above authorities; off course, she needs to meet up the quality and deadlines, without being rushed. Constant feedback with an impeccable support of the management is always there.
Learning atmosphere: An employee in small companies learns a lot because she has ample opportunities to experiment and execute. In the process, she invests valuable time, efforts, and skills to learn, and get an astounding experience. On the contrary, big companies do not give heed towards development and growth of employees. Yes, promotion and salary increment are there, but the most imperative aspect that is learning is limited. That’s the reason why most of the talented and potent employees leave the respective companies, and start their own ventures.
Appreciation: Our small achievements matter a lot; in startups employees are recognized. Their small efforts are appreciated which instills an unshakeable confidence in them, and motivates them to work harder. This creates a positive atmosphere in the organization, and sustainability of the employees is also enhanced.
Henceforth, these were the benefits of commencing the career with startups. Top-notch entrepreneurs like Bill gates, Ambanis, Birlas, etc. started from the least, and eventually, gained the most. They followed their hearts to empower.
