After going with a friend of mine to a legal consultation session at NYU for his startup, I became more interested about startups in college, especially after hearing about the constantly over the years.. Startups have always been a new approach to gaining experience and upstarting careers in the US and abroad. My friends, Shreshta Khetan and Srishti Mittal created a startup, UniRely, last year which connects international students applying to colleges in the US to students mentors in the US. International students have less resources and limited access to counselors in other countries, especially in Asia.
UniRely focuses on letting people directly communicate with current students from colleges of their choice so they can get a feel for what the college is about. This is just one idea being pushed into the market by NYU students as well as colleges around the country. While many people see millennials as lazy and lacking in the work ethic of previous generations, it’s becoming clear that this is not the case and that, in fact, millennials all across the country as well as abroad have a strong entrepreneurial spirit.
Many recent studies show that millennials are part of the most independent and flexible sectors of the workforce. Millennials often choose to test ideas whether they be good or bad , and are prepared to fail and try again. Universities and other institutions have caught onto this, now offering a variety of services to cater to up-and-coming business leaders. In an age where good work experience is hard to come by, startups offer a fresh approach to gaining knowledge and hands on experience outside of the classroom.

Dispatches from the Internship Hunt
Skills learned at startups are not skills that can be easily taught in a classroom, and are skills people learn in real time in non-formal settings. Whether it be attending conferences, giving pitches at events, or simply finding people to fulfill tasks on an ad-hoc basis, I enjoy listening to my friends experiences whether it be good or bad news. Alternatively, most people intern at companies to gain experience, and while sometimes employers are willing to teach valuable skills and software, many people didn’t feel that they gained much from their experience. In the end, it is all about perspective and choice when approaching career options.
