No matter how much a newly-founded enterprise is supported by backup whether from investors, resources or others, it needs talents to grow, skills to develop i.e. people to flourish. Before stepping into a new threshold of a taking-off company, a person must take several points into consideration some of which are:
- Study well your path: Put in your mind that you are going to face pressure and a lot of shocks. If you are a new graduate, a startup is a good choice for you since you will both develop together even though you might fall several times while seeking the peak. You will learn a lot from such startup, but do put in your mind you are not going to be promoted quickly since you must take into consideration its speed of development compared to your work.
- Know more about the enterprise’s financial state: Since you are aiming to be one of its members, do not hesitate to ask for further information about the investors who are supporting it and in what way does it gain profit. Sometimes the investors might turn fake or might not match the required needs. Therefore, knowing more and more about its economy and money sources is of major importance before taking the decision of whether or not to join the team.
- Rate the job: After getting background information about the business’s economic status, it is time to analyze your post from all dimensions. Make sure you take your time in this step to discover if you can proceed in your way. Ask yourself if you: have the required skills, feel some passion towards your work, are able to excel ….
- Integration: No matter how your own skills match the startup requirements, you cannot improve except when you feel that you are one of team. You are going to spend the majority of your time with those people, so if you feel that you are unable to integrate with them and communicate right i.e. you are in a wrong place. Teamwork is of major importance since one hand cannot clap alone. When the team unites together, you learn from others and help them in their weaknesses. Nobody is perfect, but collecting fruits from different trees ends up with a colorful, rich bowl with different kinds of fruits. This is as well the result of teamwork.
