Gone are those days when people used to approach their elders for guidance in each and every phase of life. Due to changes in our lifestyle, society and families, individuals are increasingly facing the need to get guidance and support at different phases in their lives. As a result, the scope of guidance and counselling in India is also increasing exponentially.

Guidance in simple terms means to direct or provide assistance to someone who needs help. Guidance can help a person sole a professional, personal, vocational, educational or any other problem for which he is unable to find a solution on his own

 

Career guidance consists of services that help people successfully manage their career development. All of us require career guidance at some point in our life. It helps us get insights about ourselves, our career and what we can do to improve it. The world is progressing rapidly with booming technologies and opportunities that can easily confuse students/learners to make a choice on what to pursue and how. The multiple career options and choices ranging from commerce, management, medicine, engineering, to arts, fashion, technology and other offbeat careers make it difficult for students to discern what they want to do. Proper career guidance help students in providing first-hand correct information relating to colleges, schools and courses available to make right career choices.
