    Why your brain is a cognitive miser ft. Ajinkya Potdar

    Why your brain is a cognitive miser ft. Ajinkya Potdar

    Education, learning and up-skilling are perceived in different ways. Some see it as a prerequisite, like following the instructions before the actual game begins.



    While others see it as a way of evolution, constantly sharpening their axes, and striving to grow at every checkpoint.



    Whatever school of thought you're into, it is evident that the modern world demands people who continuously update their knowledge and leave room for growth even at their success.



    We're excited to welcome Ajinkya Potdar, Capital Placement's very own Senior Operations Manager, to speak more about the topic and walk us through the importance of up-skilling in an ever-changing world.

    Why young people need young industries ft. Kristen Sesto

    Job hunting and a new professional, there is no greater love-hate relationship story. 🫶



    It is no cakewalk getting that first email reply, or that first LinkedIn notification popping that is NOT a rejection. And if you managed to get one, great job 👏, but it doesn't end there.



    While there is no perfect formula to crack approaching the job market today, there are budding opportunities and ✨industries✨ in every direction.



    We are extremely pleased to invite Kristen Sesto, Director of Custom Influence, to shed some light on her 13-year career and walk us through the best modern practices to attain your first job, well and fast.

    Will Artificial Intelligence create or destroy jobs? ft. Andre Howson

    Will Artificial Intelligence create or destroy jobs? ft. Andre Howson

    The wait is over! The Career Growth Podcast is back with a ✨FRESH✨ season of industry insights, sneak peeks and insider info into anything and everything revolving around the professional world!



    If it was a year ago, we could probably say that AI has struck up the way we work, like lightning ⚡️, but the truth is a year later, AI has settled in, altering everyday operations and activities across all industries.



    In this era of change and evolution, it does pose a concern that AI is speeding up too fast and an age-old question of whether this change is positively impacting the nature of jobs in creating better opportunities.



    As the new season’s greetings, we’re excited to have invited Andre Howson, Writer and Creative Director, who’s traversed long in the industry as a creative writer and as a managing director of various media.



    Andre walks us through his insights regarding the implementation and commonality of AI, and what it means on the larger scale to the future of jobs and the expansion of industries.

    Is this the end of social media as we know it? Ft. Angel Zhou

    Is this the end of social media as we know it? Ft. Angel Zhou

    It's the last episode of the season, and we're ending with a bang! 

    Social media has become a staple part of most of our lives, like bread, to feed us with the information we're yearning for, whether it's the new Taylor Swift album announcement or a crazy conspiracy theory you're hooked into.

    But with the ever-changing usage of social media and a plethora of new platforms spawning every month, it's a big question as to where social media is headed and what purpose would it serve in the future. It's a bit deep, but we're going deeper and more unhinged with this episode.

    We're excited to invite our very own Social Media Manager, Angel Zhou, to share her honest thoughts on the future of social media, and her take on burning online questions on the journey of social media.

    How to do something no one has done before ft Beatrice Cord

    How to do something no one has done before ft Beatrice Cord

    We're all influenced by the impalpable connection between gaining early career experience and raking in years of experience to get better outcomes at work.

    And it's not our fault. Many modern companies claim to seek 'beginner-level' professionals but look for 3-4 years of experience among these beginners.

    It's difficult to break the cycle and pursue different work industries, weigh in multiple options, and take an exploratory route with your early career over sticking to one role and progressing from there right from the start.

    But we're excited to speak with Beatrice A. Cord, Global Partnerships Lead at Endeavor and somebody who's traversed through many career routes such as marketing, public diplomacy, sustainable development, youth leadership, and more.

    Beatrice recounts her experience exploring different career choices, entrepreneurship, and the perspective of not limiting oneself to one choice.
