Great Learning, one of the leading global edtech companies for higher education and professional training today announced the launch of the 3rd edition of its flagship Diwali campaign #NewBeginning. Through this campaign, the company aims to offer free career counseling to fresh graduates and working professionals through one-on-one sessions with leading domain experts. These sessions will provide insights to the mentees on the latest trends in the industry, a suggested career roadmap and ways to address their career roadblocks.
The job market in India is in the doldrums and there's an imminent recession across the globe. Navigating one's career path through such a scenario can be daunting, especially for inexperienced working professionals.
The #NewBeginning campaign by Great Learning aims to provide the right platform to help such individuals make better and more informed career decisions. People can register themselves through this link https://program.greatlearning.in/newbeginning_2022/ for a counseling session between 19th-24th October. 30+ renowned domain experts will provide counseling for careers in the fields of Software Engineering, Data Science, Product Management, Digital Marketing, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Cloud computing, Cybersecurity and Management. These mentors working at renowned companies have an average 12 years of experience and will offer 300+ counseling sessions as a part of this campaign.
Speaking about the initiative Aparna Mahesh, Chief Marketing Officer, Great Learning said “ Getting good guidance early on in one's career can be invaluable. Fresh graduates and young professionals face a lot of ambiguity while choosing a career path that's right for them. A lot of professionals also get stuck in jobs that don't fit their skills and interests. Our goal with these 1:1 free counseling sessions is to celebrate the spirit of Diwali and enable people to make a #NewBeginning in their careers with guidance from top domain experts in the country.”
Lauding this unique initiative, Sonu Kansal, a counseling session mentee from the previous edition of the campaign, said “After completing my Bachelor's in Technology in Mechanical Engineering, I worked as an Operations Analyst for 3 years. I registered for the counseling session to understand how to transition from an operations role to a product management role. Getting an opportunity to speak with an expert provided clarity to me on what my next steps should be. I really appreciate that the team at Great Learning came up with such an initiative to address the queries of individuals like me.”
Till date, Great Learning has helped 420+ individuals in navigating their career paths during the pandemic through the previous editions of the campaign.
