Planning My First Course

Reading Time: 10 minutes.

Hi, I am planning to create a Course which I think would be useful for young graduates and freshers in search of a job. It could even help middle level professionals to some extent.

I am planning to launch this course by the first week of August 2020.

When you complete this course, you can increase the possibility of landing a lucrative job in a prestigious company.

In addition, you can easily negotiate the tough times in searching for the job as well.

Your valuable suggestions and comments are welcome.

The Corona Effect:

Every major happening in the world, drastically changes the patterns of every industry, every sector and the daily habit of humans.

This Covid – 19 or Corona effect is no exception.

People and jobs will demand a different set of characteristic traits and different set of skills from you.

But when you have strong and good values, you will be wanted everywhere, provided you have the basic skill requirements.

This course is focussed on Values and skills.

About the Course:

This course is Campus to Corporate Program.

The young graduates need guidance and exposure. The right guidance at the right time, with some good exposure, will do a lot of wonders for you.

How many times have you expected someone to help you in times of need?

How many times have you expected someone to teach you without holding anything back?

This course will help you learn without holding anything back.

The need of the hour is real world exposure in handling people, communication, completion of projects and the exposure to make money as well as saving it. It can only be gained through experience and is called as active learning.

Keeping all this in mind, I am planning for a comprehensive course which will be both online and offline with full of active learning.

This course will be usefull to you regardless of your educational background. You could be in any stream of engineering, arts, science, or interested in digital marketing, content writing, photography or any other job you want to pursue.

We will explore all the strengths and improve it through the course.

There will be colloboration, execution and learning all the while making some money. 🙂

The course is divided into various Levels and each level has some modules.

Level – 1:

Level 1, is all about mental preparation.

It is important to start the course with the right mindset. In case you have any fear, it is best to eliminate it or reduce its intensity right in the beginning.

The success of the course largely depends on how you are prepared to start and work consistently thoughout, to complete it.

Removing mental blocks and fear at the beginning gives you a positive head start in completing the course and ensures a higher chance of success in your job placement.

  • Module – 2: Beating Fear, Procrastination and Becoming Resilient.

Level 2, is about effective resume building, writing a proper covering letter and successfully completing the interview.

Effective resume is one which markets you well and brings you to the interview table. It increases your chance of getting selected.

When it comes to facing the interview, even experienced candidates face a big challenge. Therefore this module is designed to address all that and when you complete Level 2, you will gain a lot of confidence in facing the interview. This will result in higher success rates in converting to jobs.

Some of the things which a company may look out are attitude, cultural fit for the organisation, proficiency in communication, team building skills etc. This module aims to give some exposure on this higher level of soft skills.

Level – 4:

Level 4 is about gaining real world experience.

In case of a corporate working culture, you may need to interact with different levels of people at various stages. This will be the daily norm rather than exception. Therefore everyday people handling skills, needs to be imbibed well. It needs a lot of practice.

When you learn all the important concepts in the previous levels, you definitely need to implement it, receive feedback and grow. Action – Feedback is the only way to learn and grow. This module aims to provide this important missing element.

Event management is one division where we can learn a lot things in a single batch. Things move fast, therefore we can learn from our mistakes and correct it quickly in the next.

When we work in 3 or 4 batches, we can gain a considerable real world exposure. We can gain experience in handling the expectations of clients, sponsors, and patrons.

There is a lot of scope to fine tune our sales, problem solving, decision making, finance, and project management skills.

You would gain hands on experience in various operations of event management, therefore this is an internship based model.

From conducting precision surveys, pricing, marketing, planning, executing, and successfully completing an event, you would gain experience in each and every division.

  • Internship I – Event Management.

Level – 5:

This level is designed to help you understand the perspective of your superiors. Here you will be asked to administer multiple events from a single point of contact.

Therefore you would gain a lot of co-ordination & communication skills, decision making, planning and execution skills.

I assure you, this module will save you a lot of time and energy when you start to work in the corporate sector.

  • Internship II – Administration.

Level – 6:

This is the final module. When you are in a position to be promoted, you expect that to happen immediately, right?

It will be really frustrating when your well deserving promotion involves waiting for a junior to acquire some basic skill set. Right?

So in order to increase the chance of getting promoted quickly, you need to start helping your juniors and still completing your responsibilities in time.

When you do it, you would be seen as a natural leader. It would be easy for your employers to assign you a leadership role.

It will be a really important task for the youngster but not for you anymore. You can gain skills and experience, but you can only be promoted when someone is there to do the less important tasks.

This module is designed to give you an opportunity to correct your past mistakes. It gives you an opportunity to give the right guidance to your juniors. This activity is called Mentoring and it will always be a win-win situation for all.

  • Mentoring.

When you complete all the six levels of this course you would have gained considerable experience which the interviewers and employers find it useful. The chances of you getting selected over other candidates now becomes a lot higher than earlier.

In fact you would be seen as a person with a lot of potential and you will be offered more opportunities to grow.

How the course is going to be delivered?

The course will contain videos, reading materials and worksheets.

Peer support group will be formed and monitored for any help.

Support will be given through email, facebook messenger and whatsapp.

How the course is going to be evaluated?

The entire course is based on peer evaluation model. Your progress in each module will be evaluated by your peers. The average value will be indicated against each module certificate. This is scientifically proven to be the precise and acceptable for the particular batch

A course completion certificate with all the details of your progress against the batch average will be displayed in the certificate itself.

The employer is always eager to pick up a candidate who appears to the interview with a certain degree of preparation.

This way your employer will know how you respond to training.

The ability to showcase your learning ability is as important as learning itself. Therefore your chances of getting selected for the post against someone who the employer is not sure about the learning ability, is always higher.
