It’s no secret that engineering is a difficult but most abused career choice in India. It has been adopted as the staple career option.
People are often ridiculed if they want to make their careers in arts or even the commerce stream. Our country has categorized everything and today we are suffering because of these categorizations itself.
In a country of 1.3 billion people which produces 1.5 million engineers every year, to hear that 80% of them are unemployable is shameful.
We keep on hearing in the news every now and then, that India is the next big upcoming superpower. But the problem is to achieve that with the current education scenario.
A country having such huge manpower base is crippled because we don’t know how to manage our resources.
We tag unemployment as one of the biggest challenges, without thinking that it is the outcome of our very own faulty education system which is based on Macaulay’s principle. Yes, it is very shocking to know that our current system is based on the thinking of an English guy.
Somebody has to change this and that is why we have created know your nods. We don’t want to categorize you because we understand every individual is capable of doing different things. We respect individuality and want you to be independent thinkers.
We all have witnessed countless times when we told our teachers that we have understood something that is being taught when we actually didn’t.This initiative of ours is against every single nod of that category.
We are tired of listening to news of young boys and girls hanging themselves because they couldn’t take the pressure. Choice of career is everybody’s right and a right equivalent to right of speech and expression.
Every hour a kid dies out there!
There are over 12000 options to choose from.
Why should one hang himself/herself because they were not able to solve some stupid questions which don’t make sense to them?
This has to stop and stop very soon.
Our vision is to provide every kid with basic access to career counselling. We want it to be affordable.
It’s high time we understood how to manage our human resources.
We will have to learn that no profession is superior to other. That nobody should be judged for the choices they make in life.
We are writing about all the careers that exist today. Read them and try to find yourself. We write the personality traits required for that job. Try to analyse yourself. Simultaneously, we will write about all the counselling procedures and how it’s done so that you may read and assess yourself.
Moreover, don’t suffer in silence. Please write to us all your problems. We have a dedicated team which will get back to you as soon as possible.
