Vijay Eswaran advises new job candidates to embrace the idea of taking risk early in their career. He understands that is important to get established with a job right away. Financial security and experience is necessary in order to get established in any industry. However, Vijay notes that the job market changes rapidly due to innovation and technology. Jobs that are important today may be obsolete in just a few years. Therefore, new job seekers must always be looking to create their own opportunities in order to have longevity in any industry.
It is important for job candidates to do thorough research when looking for a company to become involved with. They must make sure that their skills and education are in line with the organization of choice. These attributes are crucial for performing a productive relationship between the employee and the enterprise. A key component to look at is whether to join a large corporation or a small startup firm.
Large corporations provide a great deal of security. There is a set way of doing things. The pace is much slower and the stability factor is very appealing. A startup company operates in complete contrast to the larger organizations. It will change rapidly as it adjusts to the industry. Startup companies also move at a much faster tempo because they are developing the resources that larger organizations already have. The job candidates at startups are expected to contribute right away. This gives them the chance to make a direct imprint on the outlook of the organization. The candidate must be completely bought in to the mission statement of the startup company in order to take full advantage of the opportunity.
