You’ve been in a job for two years and want to switch to another field. Or you’re a student who’s just graduated and looking for a job, but can’t figure out what to do. Or how to do it. Especially because the world of work is changing so rapidly. 

What do you do? You could turn to an expert for career advice. 

Here’s a carefully curated collection of career advice from Harappa Education’s stellar faculty: 

  • Design Your Career

When you start off in your first job, it’s difficult to imagine what career you want or what career you’ll end up having. As you grow, you’ll learn more about your interests and skills and then you can build a career to match what you’re good at.

Harappa faculty and organizational development consultant Shalini Lal gives the example of YouTuber and talk-show host Lilly Singh to explain how one can start off doing one thing, and then pivot and change to match their skills and emerge into the right career.

  • Are You In The Right Place?

Work can sometimes be frustrating and you might feel that it is time to leave and move on. But how does one know when one is in the right place in their career or when it is the right time to move on?

Shalini Lal has advice that can help you understand whether you’re where you want to be or not.

  • Discover Your Purpose

If you’re in the right place in your career, it is likely that you have found your purpose and feel as though you are fulfilling it. If you find your purpose, the sense of achievement you get out of your work could be the reason you get out of bed every morning.

Harappa founder and chairman Pramath Raj Sinha explains how the work he does is the reason he gets out of bed and out the door every morning.

  • Expert Advice

Finally, there’s a lot that can be said about careers and how to excel at what you do. The best people to say these things are people who have experience walking this path and have emerged victorious. 

So here we have Pramath Raj Sinha and Harappa founder and CEO Shreyasi Singh giving some key advice for every young professional.

The world of work can be a scary place, but it doesn’t have to be. If you understand your own skills and talents and your motivations for doing what you do, you can be successful and satisfied in your career.
