Career Guru is a birth child of eminent protégées from elite institutions like University of Cambridge, MIT (USA), Harvard University and and many others (Know more About Us). The vision behind the setup is to sculpt out the best career paths for our students. Our aim is to open the world through education. We help students identify their Career Quotient, to identify their true calling, what they are passionate about and help them turn their passion into a successful career. With right guidance at the right time, from the right experts you can reach the peak sooner in your field of choice – academics, fine art, music, sports, culinary skills, administration, painting, law, journalism, business, medical, or any other from the seamless ocean of careers and opportunities.
Ask a small child what do you want to do or be when you grow up? The answer keeps on changing with age as the child is fascinated towards something one day and towards another after a few days, months or years. For example a child who wants to be a Doctor may suddenly, after a visit to a doctor for check-up or vaccination, may decide against becoming a doctor. Choice of careers can be from mainstream careers like doctor, cricketer, actor, police man, pilot or judge or be what many call offbeat like singer, musician, dancer, pianist, gardener or painter. The career change can be dramatic, with their own justifications and reasons, and can be as strange as fire fighter (you get to help people in danger) or gardener (as you get to grow beautiful and colourful flowers) to President (He travels in a fleet of shinning BMWs) to Prime Minister (watches him speak everyday on TV, and photo on the front page of newspapers). Then suddenly they can decide to be just like Mom or Dad- takeover their business or be a teacher.
However, when the same child grows up and is more aware of his context, and probably more mature, and you ask them the same question, what path they want to take, then don’t be surprised to get an answer that I don’t know. Parents tell their kids that the world is at the doorstep and they can do anything they want if they put their mind to it. At Career Guru we understand that while it’s true that they can be anything they want, we must remember they can’t be everything. They must choose. They must focus. They must persevere. They must pay the price. At Career Guru, we help children and their parents realise their true potential and guide them to take this most important decision of their life based on their aptitude, attitude, likes and dislike, abilities, strengths and weakness and what they aspire for (if they have clarity about it, else we will enable them to clarify it for themselves – Thats what we do!).
We find students are very confused about selection of subjects, stream, pathways and career choices – we have identified over 12,000 career options. There are also hundreds of career avenues with new ones emerging at a rapid pace, about which most of students and parents are unaware of or have many preconceived and mis-informed notions. There is also lack of knowledge about careers and their economic scope and potential growth in the future. We help you identify your ideal career which co-aligns with your personality, traits, attitude and aptitude. Through a comprehensive personality assessment and one-to-one personalised counselling we help students to find their ideal subject, stream, or combinations. It’s a scientific process determined by research that is strongly rooted in neuroscience, brain studies, personality assessment, psychological research, occupational context, and labor market trends, analysis and forecasting. This is where we add maximum value not just for your career, but also for your life, your teams, your relationships – both personal and professional, nurturing for achieving your full potential. We develop a long-lasting and nurturing relationship with you!
What is Career Counselling?
Counselling is the scientific process of assessing, identifying, changing, nurturing and guiding individuals to achieve their maximum potential in career and life by achieving a tight synchronisation between existing capabilities, attitudes and attributes, and unmanifest potential and capacity inherent in each individual.
Our highly trained professional experts will provide deep listening, resolve non-agreement between parents and children, build rapport and trust, make individualised assessment, give guidance, moral and emotional support, and tools and techniques to actualise your full potential. They will also identify problems faced and provide personalised solutions. We will create a personalised Career Plan and Implement it along with you.
Career is seeded in childhood and develops for the rest of your life, influenced by your capabilities, capacity, interests, family background, education, value system, and personality traits.

Personality assessment and Occupational fit testing tools are used to make career decisions. These assessment traverse multiple categories like: Motivation, Attitudes, Leadership, Career, Occupational Interest, Leisure, Relationship, Habits, Interests Profile, Ability, Orientation, Personality Type and Structure, Motives, Values and Preference Inventory, and Aptitude tests. Logic behind these tests is that people with similar scores on multiple variables and attributes will have a better fit with each other and will probably have similar life and occupational preferences. For example, people with different aptitudes say for Creativity or Maths will have different occupational goals and fit, which can serve as a credible predictor of success. Career choice can be further corroborated by Personality Type and Structure tests like Myers-Briggs Type Indicator or JTI or 16 Factor test.
