Hiring for startups can never be defined. In fact, it’s easy to put a definite order and structure to the growth path of a team member in established firms that follow the traditional hierarchies. The simplest way to draw the differences between a startup and a firm that is established is the growth path.
You are a student and your exams have just got over. It is the holiday season but you have wasted too many vacations doing nothing. You’re looking for a job but your "dream company" doesn’t have a role for you.
On the other hand, an up-and-coming company is ransacking platforms like LinkedIn, Angel List, and Internshala to get the right intern on board. Would you choose to work in a company that you haven’t heard of?
Experienced professionals are often wary to accept a startup challenge. They generally grow accustomed to getting a stable income, working in a better office, and are resistant to change.
Any organization, whether big or small, looks forward to building teams with a blend of freshers and people with reasonable work experience.
Earlier, the general case was for startup recruiters to prefer experienced candidates over freshers. This has gradually changed.
It's clear from these studies that start-ups are increasingly investing in freshers. Startup founders appreciate the fact that fresh employees don’t have astronomically high salary expectations. To be honest, this becomes one of the most important factors for a startup to consider.
The work environment at any startup is extremely dynamic, action-oriented and productive.
In this case, the energy of a young, fresh graduate is what the seniors in the organization really look forward to. Candidates just out of college are always excited to figure out how their learning can be implemented in a practical sense.
Freshers are always willing to learn. For startups, this can be good since everyone else too are more or less finding their way without a set template in place.
The hierarchies aren’t particularly apparent in a startup which works in the favor of freshers. Founders and the key brains behind the startup idea are more approachable.
At the right startup, a fresher has innumerable growth opportunities. If a fresher is inducted well and they take to the job, rest assured that they are in your company for the long haul.
Startups call for teams adopting varied roles. Freshers are so much more likely to experiment with a variety of roles as compared to someone with work experience, who have figured out their best capabilities.
