Music For is the new podcast between artist, designer and producer Amrita Sen and citiesabc and openbusinesscouncil Founder Dinis Guarda. This is Music For Career, where Amrita and Dinis explore the analogy between music and career management.
Thought as a collaborative work between the two, the podcast showcases the power of music to improve our wellbeing and healing as well as Amrita’s exclusive ideas in terms of narratives from Indian Mythology. She aesthetically introduces a fresh perspective to the potentials of music in alleviating one’s inner self by taking an illustration of career management and the concept of you need to shrink before you expand.
For Amrita, there is this notion today that people have to be a career person in a working environment where people don’t really know what skills are required from them.
“I mean the reality is now- you have to have so many different skills, and malleable skills to be able to operate in this heavy technology AI-driven world. As Harari says: this is the first time in history when you don’t know what you’re gonna be doing 20 years from now. You may not be knowing what skills you need five years from now. So, you have to be a fairly flexible person. But I think where this can get misinterpreted by people who are trying to do big things and trying to re-enter something is you can’t necessarily say, yeah I wanna be very high level, just focus on the big ideas and be a jack of all trades.
“I believe that while that perspective is great to have, to get started, you have to have a technical skill. Without a technical skill that you master, it is not gonna create, it’s not gonna shape your brain to where you can even absorb the other numerous types of information that you need to,” she explained.
