Startup teaches you a lot of skills that you have never learnt before. It’s an experience that turns you into an entrepreneur. Startup life is full of energy, enthusiasm, learning, multitasking, multiple roles and responsibilities. Here are 3 Lessons startup can teach.

You develop self-learning skills.

Not every startup company teaches you how to work. If you are joining a startup, remember you will have to learn everything on your own. No skills we be taught. People working in a startup learn own their own.
Your co-workers will help you when you require. It’s a learning and growing environment. Startup Culture is free, independent and ideas are discussed every day which helps you in learning greater things in business.

You learn multitasking.

Startup business has no specific role. Single person handles multiple responsibilities. Founder performs multiple roles. Multitasking is their blood. With limited resource and budget they run the show. A developer not only develops a product but they at times add ideas for marketing and product building.
Lot of learning and multitasking opportunities are available. You can ask for more work from your colleague and help them out. With this you will know new work and process.

You learn different operations and domain knowledge.

As described above with multitasking comes multiple operations work. For e.g. CEO not only meets clients he also looks after accounts and development. Project manager also handles business development. Front end developer can work on backend when required. So while selecting candidates founder prefer to get a single resource with multiple skills and domain knowledge. Be prepared with such roles if you are applying for a startup company.

Conclusion

Startup work culture and environment is really great. If you get an opportunity to work with a startup grab it.

  1. Hi Manishi,
    I have friends who work (or worked) in start ups, and I know it can be exciting and gratifying, but also tiring. Also, there is a heightened risk of failure especially in terms of funding, which brings job insecurity. I think these are also things to think about when you consider working for a start up.
