Graduate jobs in startups are often thrilling and transformative opportunities.
The startup experience can vary widely based on the specific company, its industry, and its stage of growth, so it’s essential to research the risks and rewards associated with startup jobs for graduates.
Two graduates we’ve previously placed speak about their experience of working in jobs at startups:
Suzanne Goddard – “I got my first graduate job through Give a Grad a Go, a Marketing Executive job for a tech startup company in London. We were a team of 5 and we were all fully invested in the success and growth of the business. It is so rewarding to see the direct results of new ideas I have or things I achieve, instead of just being a cog in the wheel or a small fish in a big pond, how some of my friends have said it sometimes feels like working in larger companies.”
Amaan Dhami – “I would say I have definitely progressed in my career quicker than some of my other university friends. I have now been working here for 17 months and got a promotion to Marketing Manager two months ago, so a big thank you for helping me get this opportunity!”
If you’re a driven and ambitious graduate who enjoys working in a fast-paced ‘all-hands-on-deck’ environment, you should definitely consider applying to jobs in startups.
