You’ve considered a move into the world of startups but it can often be difficult to understand what working for a startup really entails. When people think about startups it’s usually in relation to the perks: the table tennis tournaments, the free alcohol or crazy team building activities. It’s one of the bonuses of working for startups but regardless of the company, startups can be very hard work and there’s no where to hide when it comes to working hard. In fact, 23% of startups fail due to poor recruitment decisions. That’s why it’s paramount that you pick a startup that fits your interests and personality.
