Having the right level of confidence is something that can take you to the next level and really give you that push you need to step out of your comfort zone and grow.
If you genuinely believe things will happen and gravitate your mind towards that, it will pull you through any setback you face and things will fall into place.
If you have confidence and belief in yourself, then with the right mindset and values Islam teaches us it will be a matter of when and not if, that you go on to achieve great things in this life and the next!
The Believers Early Careers Podcast has been set up to instil confidence in our young Muslims and inspire them to strive towards achieving excellence in their careers without compromising their faith or identity. We aim to connect the career stories of Muslim Professionals across different professions to young Muslims. This is to help young Muslims get access to Muslim professionals, by hearing their career journeys, challenges and advice in careers they are interested in. This will enable our young people to gain a valuable insight and learn from Muslim professionals.
Most episodes will be focused on giving real insight into a career journey, some episodes will be focused on the mindset towards how we view careers as a Muslim with barakah and excellence in mind. Other episodes will consist of practical advice such as making use of a gap year, how to approach things like assessment centres/interviews and more.
There is a lot more work to be done in addition to setting up a podcast to address this issue. With the right support however we feel we can bring this issue to light and start working towards a positive change. We want to create a voice for young Muslims when it comes to careers support as part of the wider social mobility challenges we face as a community.
