Vijay Eswaran is a firm believer in taking risk. Being able to step outside of the box helps individuals create opportunity for themselves. This is something that people who are new to the job market should consider early in their careers. Most of them will not see it this way in the beginning. New job seekers are in a hurry to associate themselves with a solid organization and become established. However, Eswaran points out that the job market changes very rapidly due to technology and innovation. This is why it is important to constantly look for ways to open doors for one’s self in business.
Those who are new to the job market need to be prepared for several different variables. It is important to become aligned with an organization that will compliment the skills and education of a job candidate. There are many options to consider. One of these considerations is beginning with a large corporation or a small startup business.
A small startup company is an environment that grows rapidly. The company is new to the industry and will be constantly adjusting to the changes as it moves forward. Someone new to an organization such as this will also have to grow at a rapid pace. There will be an opportunity to learn and take on challenges. This offers the opportunity for needed experience.
A large corporation operates in the opposite manner. Large companies have things in place that cover many of the obstacles that a small company will face. The operation moves much slower and there is a set way of conducting business. The opportunity to step outside of the box and shine in a unique way is far less at a large corporation.
It is important to buy in to the mission of any organization. This is especially true with a small startup business. The new candidate will directly contribute to what the startup company will eventually become.
