    Course Summary

    Career counselling is increasingly seen as having a huge significance in a student’s life. Today’s youth are more keen to carve out their own paths rather than following the traditional routes of their predecessors. Technological innovations on a daily basis are making way for new career paths to emerge. The VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous) world of today is throwing up immense opportunities and challenges, and there is a strong chance of students/professionals getting confused in making the right academic or career decisions.

    A career counsellor with the appropriate counselling through analysis, an understanding of the student’s world and using relevant diagnostic tools can play a major role in helping a student take the right decision. If you think you have what it takes, then this programme could be a perfect match. You will be glad to receive a comprehensive course created in collaboration with academicians, subject matter experts and veteran counsellors. This is not all, after completion of this programme, you will have an opportunity to get empanelled with TCS iON as a Career Counsellor.
