Okay so I have an experience to share with you all on Start-ups. Start-ups are great place to begin your career, you get to learn a lot about business administration and corporate life cycle. The only drawback in a start-up is that your job isn’t quite secure. You are working on someone’s idea and there is no guarantee that this idea will work but if the startup is a success than you are set for life. Despite graduating with a degree in Electrical Engineering, I join mizado.com, a startup venture from Rocket Internet GmbH, where I helped setup customer service and logistic department. mizado.com. But since it was a startup, the investors assumed a lot and wasted a lot of money without a plan hence the company now shut and all 82 employees are let go but the experience I had with mizado.com was priceless.
As I mentioned earlier, not all startup fails, namshi.com which was the sister startup working along side mizado.com in the same office was very successful and it is now being funded by JP Morgon. The reason being namshi was targeting on a niche market unlike mizado hence namshi.com was very successful and managed to survive unlike mizado.com
If you are a fresh graduate, you have to know before hand what sort of industrial sector you want to start your career in. Do your homework and apply. Good Luck
