October 2023 Issue: Editor’s Note

Unveiling the October issue of Career Ahead Magazine, featuring Grammy-recognized Dr. Charles Jenkins, former cricketer Murali Kartik, and a mosaic of expert insights across dynamic industries. Delve into the evolution of careers, the rise of entrepreneurship, and the latest industry trends shaping the professional world.

At some point in our early years, we have all been asked the question, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” Many are convinced that they will be astronauts, palaeontologists, architects, engineers, doctors, or artists. Wouldn’t it be ideal if that was how it all turned out for all of us eventually? Though we might have a surplus of astronauts in that case! In reality, most of us change our minds on this topic several times over the years and by the time we reach adulthood – the aspiring doctors have become computer engineers and the would-be truck drivers have become doctors.

In fact, as I write this, I am aware that in the near future career fluidity will be the norm. Today, professionals change employers several times over the course of their careers, whereas till about three decades ago, it was typical to have one employer all through your career. As things are changing, entrepreneurship has become a preferred choice for many; and among professionals, very few stick with one employer or one field of work. There are many options available to the youth today and they are not afraid to take risks and follow their instincts. To quote Mark Zuckerberg, “In a world that’s changing really quickly, the only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is not taking risks.”

As we move ahead in our attempt to inspire the next generation, in this issue we share contributions from distinguished artists, entrepreneurs, professionals, and educationists. Our cover story is by Grammy-recognized singer-musician, entrepreneur, and pastor Dr. Charles Jenkins, who has shared valued insights into his journey in the music industry. In our exclusive Q&A, our Editor-in-Chief Akhil Backliwal interviewed former Indian cricketer and commentator Murali Kartik, who has shared a wealth of information for budding sports professionals. Other unique topics covered in the issue include a crash course in UX Design, insight into the wedding planning industry, trends in the pet care industry, dealing with the ‘imposter syndrome’, and the evolution of MBA education.

We look forward to your valuable feedback. Visit our website and social media pages for more interesting content!
