Revision as of 03:47, 20 January 2018

The core objective of Rethink has been to facilitate professional excellence and aid the growth of talent and skills in the youth of Kerala. In the last couple of months, we have been doing this by ensuring that students know about various opportunities they have and apply towards them.

This year, we are looking to expand our focus to Jobs. We want all our students and youngsters to have a phenomenal career, not just a good job. We awnt them to have ambitious goals and the skills to make it happen.

The ability to craft a great career comes with experience, skills and hands-on execution. But more importantly, their professional goals will be materialised only when they first believe that it is possible to achieve them.

As a hack to help them get started on the journey, we have come up with the idea of getting them to interact with an accomplished alumni of their college through a Facebook Live interview.

Essentially, the student will be communicating with the alumni and hosting a Live interview with them on the alumni's current role and how one can get there.

The benefit of this is threefold:

1. Interacting with someone who was just like them a couple of years ago and has gone on to do some great things in life, brings a lot of relatability to the table. It makes their goals seem more achievable. "If she can do it, I can too" sorts.

2. By interacting with alumni, the students are constantly working on their communication and execution skills while building a great professional relationship with them. The engagement gives them a taste of what the professional world looks like and what it takes to get there.

3. In the process of doing the interview, if the students build great affinity with the alumni, it opens the possibility of the alumni becoming a mentor to the student or also recommending him/her to the organization they are working with. Getting a referral may also help them land an interview with the organization and eventually get hired.
