Boost your career prospects while at University with Durvesh Yadav
It's sad, four to eight years working towards your degrees to end up managing the night shift at a job that you don't even love or that is not even your passion. Don't let this happen to you. Start working towards your entry-level career early in the game.
If you want to land the job of your dreams, you're going to have to do a fair bit of groundwork to get there – and having a degree under your belt is just the start of it. There are hundreds of ways to make a career, especially in college. What limits people from doing it is all internal - not external. They make excuses for themselves: I don't have enough time or don't know where to start. Seriously, we brain-dump every idea we could think of to make our career.
Well, today, we are eliminating some of those excuses.
Mr Durvesh Yadav's interview tells us some points we need to focus on during our college days. He is a 22-Year-Old Young boy with big dreams like every other college student. He started earning lakhs of rupees while studying in college. He is working with Mr Bhupendra Singh Rathore (India's No. 1 Motivational Speaker of 2020), Building his brand and creating passive income streams. He is also writing a book with him which will launch in a couple of months.
It's getting to the time of year when final-year students are coming to the end of their university journey and gearing themselves up for the next life milestone – securing their first graduate job. But before we get to the applying part, let's rewind a bit.
One common misconception is that your professional experience starts after college. This incorrect student career advice can and will cost future opportunities. Start looking for opportunities before you graduate. Don't automatically default to those stereotypical "college students" or minimum wage jobs. Students, you've seen it more than once. Classmates complete their degrees and then spend their first week of freedom from the library painting the town red and celebrating. Those same classmates pound the pavement, the following week with their resumes, new tie, starched slacks, and polished shoes – only to find rejection at every turn.
A meaningful career is one where we feel an authentic connection between the work we do and a broader life purpose beyond the self.
But the meaning isn't something you either have or don't have. It's an approach to life and your career. It's a mindset more than a behavioral trait. Simply prioritizing meaning in your career can lead to improved performance, commitment, and job satisfaction. Building a meaningful career means doing something that you love, can be a 9-5 job or your startup when you live life for a purpose instead of running every time and everywhere like a rat who is always trying to hide from a cat. Most people in their college life run after their grades, not knowing where life is taking them—following the path blindly, without seeing obstacles and opportunities. And this is where most people are stuck.
Suppose a boat on a port started moving along with the water flow; where will it land? Nowhere, because there is no destination. But on the other hand, if a ship has a specific direction and knows its destination, it will reach there for sure. Our life is also the same; if we know where we want to go, it doesn't matter if it's a job or a business. It's a Meaningful Career.
Durvesh thinks that everyone should have long term goals instead of short term. Most college students participate in extracurricular activities that have nothing to do with their long-term goals. So, make sure you spend most of your time doing actions that take you one step closer to your goals.
Time lessons on the road
We have often heard people complaining about the time, they want to achieve this success, but time is all they need. If you often use this line, then this is for you that everyone in this world has 24 hours; no one got extra time to achieve a position at which they are standing today. It depends on you how you use your time. We understand, your 9 to 5 is blocked, due to your college. After that, you've to sleep for 8 hours, plus 6 hours of study. But do you seriously study in those 6 hours or follow the trend of studying just one night before the exam.
"Everybody has 24 hours, and the question is, what do you do with your 24 hours? That's what makes everybody equal."
Skills to earn
There are hundreds of high-paying skills. You can choose one or two in the beginning and can master them.
Some of the skills that were on top of his head are:
But that's not it; you can search for anything today through the internet. Do remember, 'you are just a Google search away.'
You can visit his instagram page @10xmentor he posts great content over there, it's very inspiring and you will definitely love it.
