Why Everyone Should Work for a Startup at Least Once

Workers learn to adapt to the uncertainty of working in a news organization.

New businesses are better at managing uncertainty.

Startup employees often face chaos, uncertainty, and contingencies, which is not the case for employees of large corporations. This results in flexibility and innovation in decision-making. If you can predict better, you can control the outcome and successfully survive the unknowable, uncertain, and complex times that come with adversity.

Security in insecurity

Startups teach you how stress can be managed and how to hustle to develop creative and clever solutions. You learn to take risks, fail, be decisive, move quickly, and set your own goals. This will help you become self-reliant and resilient, quick, agile, and driven to execute. It will allow you to maintain control of your life, and it will also provide the perfect groundwork for your first venture into entrepreneurship if you have to.

Working closely alongside your company’s leaders

I worked as a credit card and consumer financial consultant company. A veteran banker started it. My close relationship with the owner gave me an in-depth knowledge of how to scale a company, improve its brand equity, and learn how to manage essential clients.

I learned problem-solving techniques through a consulting company that I would not have had access to in a more narrowed position at a larger company. I was also able to create a press release, an article, a report and understand why caring gives you a competitive edge. These skills helped me to become an entrepreneur during 2007’s economic slump.

During difficult times

Startups are more open to your opinions and can be expected to take on multiple roles. The result is that the impact of your work will be much greater than in large companies. This encourages pride in your work and a belief that creativity can overcome all obstacles.

My father was a banker for more than 30 years. This gave him career security and advancement and exposure to experts from other sectors and geographic areas. Today, it is a fallacy for younger Boomers, Millennials, and Gen Z to assume that they will have job security in a world undergoing significant socio-economic, political, and environmental changes.
