I recently received an offer from a small consulting firm. After talking with the founder of that company, I started to see the power of small business. Sometimes we are so focused on large companies that we don’t see the rewards small companies can bring to us.
Working in a comparably small business can give us a solid foundation and appropriate attitudes to be a long-run winner. In a small scale business, most of the time we need to figure out by ourselves that the decisions we made were right for the firm. We are able to be more independent and really get a taste of the “real-world”.
We can also have a chance to immerse in different areas of the business. Someone who works in marketing department may gain experience in information technology area. In our college years, from my perspective, we don’t need to limit ourselves to a small list of favorites. Taking advantage of every opportunity and making the most out of it will give us more experience than we expected.
It’s not a bad idea to set yourself a challenging goal for your career. It can give you motivation and help you to find a direction in your life. However, no one can reach the goals in their sleep. No matter how bad we want it, the process of achieving our final goals will take a lot of time and effort. Many of us have a dream of being a successful business man or woman, but it's hard to make the dream come true if we don't have what it takes to survive in the business world.
