Very few of us actually know what is best for them from career stand point.
Mostly we are forced to do things by parents, relatives and teachers (with best
intentions of course). By the time, we realize what is good for us, we may
have spent a lot of time in a job that just does not suit us.

You must build your career on 4 pillars
This is very crucial. 30 years back when your mummy and
daddy were searching for a job, they had only a few options really.
If they were bright, they would go for engineering,
medicine or Government services.
If they were all right and academically inclined, they would get in to teaching
in a government college.
All others, would get in to clerical positions.
Well, there were exceptions, but most followed the same
The situation is very different now.
While these options are still available, with the advent of outsourcing, a whole
new set of jobs are created. You need to understand that these jobs are
exciting and demand skill sets that are not taught in our curriculum.
Whether it is software, IT enabled services or Bio-technology, the set of jobs demand skills and aptitudes that are very different from conventional jobs. Even in conventional sectors like banking, the technology is changing the nature of jobs and skill requirement.
There are around 2 million graduates coming out every year and approximately
1.5 million new jobs are created in the emerging areas ALONE!!!
So, the first step towards establishing a bright career is to understand this
scenario. Learn exactly what is there on the table. Know that, whatever
your strengths, weakness are, there is an opportunity lying there. You
just have to tap it.
Exactly what qualities make you suitable
for a job?
Scientists all over the world worked on this issue and they do have
some answers. Any HR executive, when testing you for a
profession in his/her company will look for the following:

up the others, fine tune them and use them through out your career
for best advantages.

Whatever be the method that works for you, learning on own through
books and other material, taking classes or picking them up
indirectly through friends and family You must ensure that you have
these skills at sufficient levels to get in to a career and do well

There will be a group of companies that you must approach, apply and pursue.
Once you narrow them down, you must do enough research on their activities and
build a resume for them. Your resume must tell the company how great a fit
you are to them. If you did the above three right, it is a simple process
to create a resume like that.
Once you have built the right skills, identified that right companies and
prepared the right resume the battle is almost won. Just apply to them,
meet them and impress them

We wanted to build one process that achieves all the four steps effectively.
- We worked for over 75,000 hours before creating the perfect process.
Throughout the process, we published our findings in journals, newspapers
and taken feedback from parents and students.
- Implemented it successfully on a few thousand people.
- We have worked with students with rural, urban, technical, non-technical,
middle, higher and lower income groups.
We were amazed with the results.
