Edtech Board Infinity has launched a campaign #TakeChargewithBI and associated with many business leaders across India to offer pro-bono career coaching sessions and career guidance to students and working professionals affected by the pandemic. This campaign is aimed at learning new courses and updating professional skills to transform their roles.
As a part of the campaign, #TakeChargewithBI the Edtech brand will offer a 1:1 coaching session of one’s choice with an industry expert at a nominal fee of Rs. 50, proceeds of which will be donated towards the COVID Relief Fund. The campaign aims to instill hope in learners by communicating that while they might not be able to control everything around them during these uncertain times, the presence of a mentor can help them cope and make better career decisions. A learner or professional will be able to opt for any live 1:1 coaching session of their choice with an industry mentor, on the Board Infinity platform.
One of the coaches, 40 under 40 Data Scientist and Vice President at eClerx, Ruble Joseph says, ” Now more than ever it’s time to support the learner community and provide them with the guidance and essential skills to beat the unemployment pandemic”.
Abhay Gupta, Co-founder & COO, Board Infinity says, “These are highly unprecedented times, and we as an organization have to come forward in whatever capacity to help our country fight the pandemic and other insecurities that are plaguing us, one of them being job losses”.
“I wasn’t able to crack any placement interviews. I wasn’t sure where I was lagging so I took this mock interview 1-on-1 class with Coach Animesh Prasad, an IIM alumnus who works at Flipkart as a Senior Product Manager. His guidance helped me identify the problems and finally, I was able to get a job!” says Ankit, a learner at Board Infinity.
