“There is nothing more educating than working in a startup”. I come from a
complete non-tech background. When I was doing my MBA in marketing, I figured
out where my interest was.
“Marketing”, I said my dad who was totally reluctant to say yes. But he knew for a
fact that he had to.

and helpless. On one hand, a high paying MNC company and other hand is an
intern offer from a startup that is just kicking off.

you actually want to take a chance and plunge in? I chose the startup. Since

fortunately it did not! Thanks to the awesome bunch of people to guide me.
Who said working in a startup for a fresher is completely disadvantageous in the
long run?? It’s absolutely not!

more reliable and more versatile than any other projects or group assignments, I
have undertaken in my college days. Though I knew for a fact that I wasn’t one of
the important person in my team but being an integral part of it pushed me to
explore further. Being recognized for the work you have been doing is definitely
the best motivator!
