Corporate America is loaded with companies whose cultures can only best be described as rigid. If the idea of donning a business suit every day and living by an HR manual doesn’t appeal to you, then you may be drawn to apply for a job at a start-up.
As the name implies, start-ups are entrepreneurial business ventures that, if well-executed, have the potential to take off rather quickly. Though some start-ups operate with the goal of going public or being bought out at a pretty penny, others simply seek to grow their operations and become medium-sized companies with steady profits.
There are different points at which you might join a start-up. If you’re hired in a start-up’s earliest stages, you’ll get to see how it operates in its rawest form. On the other hand, if you apply at a start-up that’s been around for a year or two, you’ll probably join a company with a moderately established way of doing business.
