By | Namrata Harish |

“Success is how high you bounce when you hit bottom”

Our world needs as much inspiration as it can get in these difficult times. The Coronavirus pandemic and the resulting shutdown have not only affected the general health, safety and well-being of the population, it has also had a huge impact on our jobs and the economy!

In these difficult times, when the world has been virtually shut down by a virus, we are on the verge of a recession. 

The Indian economy has taken a big hit and to remedy it, the government has implemented Unlock 4.0. 

Will it really be effective? Needless to say, many businesses have been shut down, many people have lost their jobs and our future looks gloomy. 

But, nothing stays forever and this time is no exception.

It is up to companies to ensure that businesses not only get back to normal, but also that the right talent is hired and people do not suffer from unemployment and lose their productivity.

And what would matter at last would be how high we bounce back! With that aim in mind, International and Alumni Relations Student Council of IIT, Madras, along with The Other Side has come up with a podcast “From Insti and Beyond” to guide students as they navigate the professional world in these uncertain times.

In this pandemic situation, the life choices that we make are continuously changing. More and more people are turning to podcasts for fun, leisure, updates as well as for self- improvement. 

Podcasting, as one of the latest mediums to emerge into the mainstream, is one of the forefront technologies in this change. 

Podcast platforms have received an increase of 8-30% traffic on their platforms. 

We at IAR Student Council are also continuously evolving, going hand in hand with the changes in demands. 

We would be bringing to you these series of podcasts which will host various esteemed alumnus of IIT Madras who made it big in the corporate world to guide us past these dark times into the sea of opportunities that awaits for us! 

Listeners can benefit tremendously from hearing life stories and advice from these successful corporate bigwigs on various topics spanning career choices, personality development, entrepreneurial culture, work ethics, and resilience during these unfortunate times. 

The entire team at IARSC, IITM and The Other Side wholeheartedly believe this would be of great service to young professionals, in terms of giving a sense of direction, hope, advice on how to excel in the corporate world, build your own personal brand, and more. 

These podcasts would also help you increase your impact in five major areas namely- 

  1. Economic Impact 
  2. Social Impact 
  3. Entrepreneurial Impact 
  4. Research Impact 
  5. Top Leadership Impact.

In our connected world, it’s a godsend to have resources like this to guide us before we weather the stormy professional world out there.
