It’s human nature to go with what makes us comfortable (apart from the adrenaline junkies out there), and what we know works. That’s why candidates can be drawn to corporate companies whose name is trusted and well established. Instinct tells us that there’s more stability and security in a company with a lot of money in it compared to a small, not as well-known company.
Although realistically any company can go into administration at any point, whether it be one of the UK’s largest supermarkets, or your local corner shop.
Another factor of why delving into larger companies could be beneficial is the heightened range of opportunities.
