Intern at a startup is the best thing that can happen to any of us.
In today’s consumerist world, people are beginning to tire of the day-in-day-out 9-5 grind that comes with working for huge corporate companies. Many of us have become disenfranchised with the big firms that dominate markets in almost every single sector. Common side effects of working for such corporations include: the sensation of powerlessness, zero attention to your personal development, and a lack of passion for your job.
Does this sound all too familiar?
While working in a Start-Up you will receive non-stop feedback on your efforts, which is one of the most effective ways of becoming a more efficient and valued employee. It also allows you to know exactly how you are doing and which areas you need to focus on improving. The input of each team member is recognized as you all share in the Start-Up’s success. As the company grows, the chance to be promoted is much higher as Start-Ups usually do not have rigid hierarchical management structure as well.
Instead of feeling pointless at work and having little effect on the big decisions that are made, you will have regular contact with the decision makers. This greater level of influence means you have more power over your own job and improves your attitude towards work.
