Dear Student,

To identify whether you have right interst and aptitude to be a computer engineer, I strongly recommend you to get your psychometric assessment done. The psychometric assessment involves assessing the aptitude, interest & personality of the students using standardized psychometric tests. It takes approximately 60-75 minutes to complete the assessment. The assessment can either be taken up online or offline.

The assessment is thoroughly assessed by a trained psychologist and a unique career profile keeping in mind the main interest areas, work values and personality attributes of the student is generated. The career plan mainly highlights the main aptitude & interest areas, personality attributes, recommendation for subjects in class 11 and suitable career options after 10+2. The career plan is thoroughly explained by a trained and certified counselor and all the career and academic queries of the student are taken care of. The counselor assist the student in understanding his career profile and thereby helping him in making an informed career decision.

The competition tunnel is getting narrow day by day and all the corporate giants also are hiring the candidates for various positions in their organization after assessing their aptitude and understanding their interests. Therefore going through a scientific process of career decision making before selecting a career can save one from the disappointment at the later stages of life.
