February 2022 Newsletter

Written by

Hey there,

Ayush here, Learning Designer at EntryLevel.

Do you ever feel like time is going by too quickly? We were all celebrating the new year holidays yesterday and it’s already the middle of February, where you probably planned for your valentines date last weekend ;)

I got accepted into a competitive 6 month online course during the lockdowns in 2020. I declined the offer thinking it’s too long and expensive.

Has this ever happened to you? When you're super excited to take on a course, but keep delaying signing up.

If yes, you’re not alone.

Often times, I regret not doing that course. If I had just spent a few hours a week, I could have become superman. (Just kidding. But still, it would’ve equipped me with necessary skills required in my role and help me grow professionally)

I didn’t do the course, but I learned one important thing: to get what you desire, start working now. Start small, but start now.

The time will pass anyway.

Make time for what is important for you, especially if it will help you land a meaningful job.

And like me, if you’re feeling life is slipping by too quickly, watch this video on why time is moving so quickly and what you can do about it.

In this month's newsletter, you'll find details about our new experiences, next cohort launch, followed by useful, fun and inspirational content in EntryLevel Digest to prepare you for a year of professional growth.

Our January cohort finished this week and we're currently onboarding our February cohort students. If you are one of them, thank you for being a part of our programs, if not, we have many experiences in the pipeline, so keep an eye out for them.

🚀 What we've been up to

Last month, we launched pre sales for 7 new programs on EntryLevel and now preparing to build these courses. If you signed up, expect an update in your inbox very soon.

Along with that. we are also launching a new and improved VC Analyst Program and a more Advanced Data Analyst course.

If you’re interested for a career change or want to upskill in your current job, our experiences are perfect for you.

📅 Game of the month

We're playing Wordle, are you?

A great 5 min energizer at the start of the day or the start of a study session. You can only play once every 24 hours and have 6 attempts to guess a 5 letter word.

Our team at Entrylevel plays it daily and we have a slack channel dedicated to it too.

Is one wordle a day not enough for you?

Check out some of the zany spins offs, including Nerdle, Quordle and Worldle.

🏢 EntryLevel Digest

In this section, we'll be sharing interesting reads, videos, tips and strange tales related to job search and lifelong learning.  

  • Write often? "Very good English" is not very good English. Check out this cool tool that helps you substitute very. » Lose the very.
  • Work Overload? Use the Weekly/Daily To-Do List Method » How to Finish Your Work, One Bite at a Time

    "If you’ve ever run more than a few miles, you probably understand why you need to pace yourself. Runners who sprint at the start of a race will be exhausted far before they cross the finish line. The same principle applies when trying to get work done."
  • The key to a peaceful mind » Read - Seneca on the Antidote to Anxiety

    “There are more things … likely to frighten us than there are to crush us; we suffer more often in imagination than in reality.”

That's all folks. Thank you for being a part of our community.

Until next time, happy learning.
