The event was conducted from 6th-9th September, 2016 in the school campus. It was started with a motivational talk with students and an open discussion on various career options available in the Indian economy. The session was conducted by Ms Surabhi Dewra, CEO of CareerGuide.com. The students were duly guided regarding the benefits of career counselling and further, different measures of career assessment tools and their importance was explained to the students. Following the session, career assessment test was conducted for all the students participating in the event in their respective classes. The session was highly informative for the students since they were not only introduced to career counselling but the session also led them to understand what their talents were.
This session was then followed by one on one career counselling with the students with Careerguide’s renowned career counsellors Ms Shilpa and Ms Pratibha. This took place on the second and third day of the event. In two days, 226 students were counselled. The individual counselling session allowed the students to discuss their passions and dreams with the counsellor. Further, the counsellor used the results of their career assessment test that was conducted on the first day. Combining the results from the test and individual discussion with the student, the counsellor guided the students on which career field they should opt for. Along with this, the students were also guided regarding the admission procedure in their respective ideal career options.
The response of the students was overwhelming after the session. They felt more confident of themselves and their talents. They were now more focussed and career oriented than before.
