Startup is the New Learning Hub
“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.” said Mahatma Gandhi. Learning indeed is a lifelong process. After finishing graduation, instead of jumping onto the masters bandwagon just for the sake of a qualification, it would be an opportune time for youngsters to work in a startup. We at 1Click believe that startup is the new learning hub!
We have 3 reasons why working in a startup is a milestone in a person’s early career:
#1 Versatile Experience – Working in a well established corporate usually means performing a fixed set of duties day in and day out. But in a startup you can become proficient in several skills. One day you’ll be coding and the next writing a blog, working on marketing and helping design team. You will see yourself in multiple job roles!
#2 Opportunity to Make a Difference – In a startup everyone in the team is a contributor, be it a recent grad or a seasoned veteran. Every person’s contribution holds importance. New ideas are almost always considered and encouraged. Chances of making a difference in the company are higher in a startup!
#3 Chance to Learn, Superfast – Working with an entrepreneur always helps you learn to look at situation from a different standpoint. You can come up with creative solutions and unearth skills and qualities you never knew you had. More than anything else, working with innovators day in and day out helps you become one of them and learn by keenly observing them.
Last week LinkedIn tweeted about the 25 Hottest Skills of 2013. Of these, we at 1Click are nurturing more than half of them.
