Have you ever thought how difficult or easy it is to take a career decision & when exactly you need to start planning for it or
How much time is actually required to prepare for that decision?
- Let’s say if you wish to invest in an electronic product/commodity may be a phone or a tablet, how long does it take to research & decide on the final purchase? A couple of days or a week at the max! That’s it. It’s an easy buy, which involves a little bit of your time to research & a small amount of money because the shelf life of such products is small maybe 2-3 years. The same thing applies if you have to buy some apparel, again an easy buy with a shelf life of 6months to 1 year. You might decide in a couple of hours.
- Now let’s suppose you want to invest in an automobile – 2 wheeler or 4 wheelers with a shelf life of 5-10 years & you want to ensure you put in your hard earned money in the right & the best one. This requires a good amount of time to do the research before the final purchase is made may be 6 months – 1 year, a lot of effort to look at the various options available in the market, analysis of your own requirement, usage, Budget affordability, etc.
Your Career Investment is a Lifetime decision:
Can you do the same while you have to invest in your career? Absolutely not! Career Investment is a Lifetime decision and will definitely need a lot of time to research & understand if it is something you would want to pursue for your lifetime. Believe it or not, this exercise begins at a very early age. Here’s how:
- While you were studying in school and specifically when you stepped into the 10th standard, did you go through the pressure of getting good grades in your board exam? And
- Also get an overall good percentage so you are qualified to be able to choose the specific stream you wish to get into or continue with in future? Because it was your interest or may be forced upon by the parent’s wish, as they want you to become a doctor, engineer, lawyer, etc. So much pressure on the little shoulders!
Your grades/ scores and choice of the stream then, was quite important as they laid the foundation stone of our career goal. Agree? …Well, that one decision/ choice, which would further guide you through the path of what you want to become in future. It serves as a base on which we build the domain of our career. It helps us give direction to keep moving further and keep making the right investments in terms of acquiring necessary skills or courses to enhance our knowledge, stay up to date & shape our career.
What I am trying to accentuate here is, it takes a lot of time, effort, focus, energy, skill, and dedication for making the right choice, which is almost like a huge lifetime investment. You may want to call it a career insurance that you plan for.
Are these some of the questions going through your mind? And if you are thinking along these lines, the below points might help you find answers.

Now Let us explain Why WMA and how we are different from others.
As part of our culture at WMA we are very particular about how we conduct training, where students will learn the What, When, Who, Why and how to of Digital marketing. By now if you have referred WMA Course curriculum you would know that we have you covered on all the aspects of Digital Marketing. Moreover, we help make the whole experience worthy of the following value adds:
In-person Classroom Environment Set up – boardroom seating style – “Learn from Each other”
- Everything makes a difference as the seating set up itself is such that it encourages interaction between the batch mates, share ideas, views & jointly work on live projects & activities during the class.
- This adds up to their interpersonal skills and helps them socialize with everyone.
- Help to understand the people better as you can see the person, talk face to face, understand body language, facial expression and most importantly the behavior. Let’s not forget, even though we are teaching or learning Digital marketing – at the end of the day, we are dealing with people and their behavior.
- Also prepares the student for group discussions. When they appear for an interview and when they have a group discussion round, they will be more confident while talking in front of a group of strangers
Small Batch Size – “Small makes a huge difference”
- Our usual batch size is not more than 10 students.
- It encourages students to open up and also helps them during their assignment presentation
- Helps in having healthy debate/discussion
Live projects – “Experiment / Implement as you learn”
- Encourage to make mistakes – as part of the curriculum we share some projects with the students for practice purpose only and encourage them to keep making mistakes.
- Learn from trial and error – the live projects help students to try out everything they learned during the classes & commit mistakes. Learning from the mistakes is something that remains with you forever!
- To work as a team – this also encourages people to work with each other. These activities help them build their cross-functional capabilities which is the key requirement for corporate companies.
- Practicing on live projects makes one more confident, become familiar with the interface and get hands-on experience on how and why of it.
Personal Attention & Guidance – “We care about you and your career”
- Because we have small batch size, it helps the faculty also to pay personal attention to each and every student in the batch while teaching the Digital Marketing concepts and assess the understanding level of the student. That is very difficult in an online format.
- I am sure many of us went to evening tuitions or coaching classes post our regular school or college hours, why? So that the students are clear with concepts & can clarify any kinds of doubts then & there directly which was difficult in a class size of 40-50 students.
- Encourages healthy relationship between the student and the tutor
Events, technical sessions – “Stay updated with Industry updates & trends”
- At WMA we offer our Students certain opportunities to be part of some events or technical sessions in addition to the regular course classes.
- This is to help expand knowledge within the field, about the industry and familiarise themselves with latest trends & updates.
Networking Opportunity – “Develop Industry Connects and get noticed”
- We are glad that we have most of our Alumni’s connected with us in some form or the other. And this is a positive sign. WMA’s alumni are quite approachable to talk & learn best practices, etc.
- Events and sessions: these activities help students network and socialize with people outside & grow their network.
- Others in the industry – we also encourage that students identify some of the industry influencers to follow, that can help them shape their career path.
Assisted Mentorship – “Anytime access to faculty”
- After the course – Ask anyone and they will tell you how much they like to spend time at WMA even After the course is over and invest time in practicing their learnings. And faculty at WMA love to assist them & are always available to provide 100% support to make them successful.
- Beyond the subject as well – the reason we always call WMA as WMA Family & not Academy is because we don’t restrict students & faculty’s to limit themselves to conversations around Digital Marketing all the time but talk about other interesting topics they like and exchange ideas, opinions, views such as hobbies, life, sports, family, etc. this helps to realise people’s real potential.
- Once you are on the job and working with clients and come across specific scenarios and look for assistance – we are just a call away and are more than happy to help you learn on the job. As that is when the real mentorship comes into picture when you are in the actual battlefield fighting and dealing with the client expectations, deliveries and deadlines along with reviews and revenue.
Certification assistance – “Master the skill, Get certified”
- The approach – after each module we encourage students to refer additional resources and how and where to attempt the assessments to get certified.
- The process – also assist them with exact process around attempting certification assessments and what certification would make sense for every individual.
- And how we help – by giving them some mock tests and executing a Q&A session and clarify doubts as necessary
Placement assistance & opportunities – “Get Placed in your dream job”
- WMA is also associated with some companies who reach out to us for hiring Digital Marketers, SEO Expert, Content marketing, social media expert, etc. WMA offers assistance & exciting opportunities from some of the employers for you to find your dream job, from the day you join WMA you will be receiving assistance from WMA along with some job vacancy’s till you land a job in hand.
