Episode 6: BC (Before Corona) vs DC (During Corona)
On account of the ongoing pandemic, the job market worldwide has suffered a huge blow. This has resulted in many falling out of work and struggling to find new work due to the expectation gap which has been created in the market. In order to understand how the general recruitment processes have changed and how one should adapt himself/herself in order to stand out amidst a surge of applications, we sought the discerning view of Rohit Bane, senior manager for Analytics at Zynga Bangalore, to share his experience on the above topics.

Episode 5: Tu Beer Hai !!
Today, everybody wants to create something of their own. Whether it’s a business proposition, or a travel blog, or an Instagram page to showcase one’s photography skills…..we all are entrepreneurs in our own little way. Also, the pandemic has given us time to introspect and discover new talents and ideas which has inevitably led to a surge in the concept of self-driven innovation.  What is it that drives entrepreneurs who make it big? What is it that they go through to sustain something they have started on their own? Is it always a cake walk? And is an entrepreneur, as portrayed and glamorized by social media, truly his own boss? These are themes which co-founder of Monk Entertainment Viraj Sheth will address in this episode.

Episode 4: The Journey of a Master’s student – The Virtual Roundtable Conference (PART 2)
This episode takes-off as a continuation of Part 1 of the roundtable conference where our panelists Devyani Tikle, Ankit Chopda, Megh Shukla, Rohan Chaudhary and I dissect our journey as a master’s student in terms of the job & internship opportunities, the challenges we faced before, during & after their study, and the pointers to keep in mind before signing up for the course/university/country.  If you’re looking to pursue a master’s degree and are befuddled by the ocean of opportunities in front of you, we strongly recommend you make time for this one!

Episode 3: The journey of a Master’s student – The Virtual Roundtable Conference (Part 1)
Today’s episode is a very special one for reasons more than one. We have an eclectic mix of panelists pursuing (or recently completed) their master’s in Australia (Devyani Tikle), Germany (Ankit Chopda), India (Megh Shukla) and the US (Rohan Chaudhary). Saurabh has taken up the dual role of a moderator as well as a participant sharing experiences of master’s in Netherlands.  It’s also the first and only episode in a video format. That’s because it offers our audience a more personalized experience of their journeys in various phases right from their motivations to pursue a masters right till completion. To avoid an overload of information, we have split the episode into two parts (the content of which is explained in the beginning of today’s episode). Part 2 will be released next week.

Reflecting on these problems, we tried to tackle them one by one while with a flavor of Dutch work experience and how many young Indians can benefit from adopting some practices early. So in this Khoj for the perfect career we bring to you bridging the industry academia gap.

Episode 1: Finding your passion
In this episode we explore topics like true passion, the possibility of having multiple passions, the need to step out of your comfort zone, difference between passion & hobby and much more. We are very fortunate to have Prashant Gade on board to share insightful experiences on his journey from being confused about what to pursue to finding his true passion. This ultimately led to the conception of Inali Foundation: A non-profit organization that offers affordable assistive health care services (in the form of low-cost prosthetic arms) for all sections of the society.
