Creating a Counseling Environment in the School


Career Workshop - A Winning College Admission Plan

4 years of hard work throughout grade 9-12 infers to one thing – successful college admissions. Students are stressed to perform well in academics, excel in extracurricular, build their resume, and certify their talents all for one reason – college admissions. But do they make a systematic plan for college admissions? What is a systematic college admission plan? How can students make their own customized plan? Where can they get help? How can they measure their success? This session made them understand the benefit of their school supporting them in planning successful admissions through an established counseling system.

Career Workshop - Career Selection: What needs to be your Groundwork?

Informed Decision is synonymous to Correct Decision. Laying hands on the right information for a correct career choice starts early. There are myriad of wrong impressions of career options that our students are prone to. Talking to them about the importance of research and what constitutes the right kind of career exploration, early on, just makes it easier for them to demarcate and move in the right direction. The session does not aim to inform the students about new career options but aims at making them understand the importance of the right kind of research and how should they do it.

Career Workshop - College Selection: Pre and Post Application Decisions

Too Many or Too Less.. College Shortlisting is tricky and Final College Selection is trickier. In this session, we talked to the students about the factors to be considered to select college/university options before they apply and also after they have received multiple offers. This does need great attention and detailing because, after all, it is about choosing what is best for you.
