In a world buzzing with endless advice on which career to choose, what to do after school.... students can listen to (and even have a chat with) top notch professionals in 500+ careers with experience ranging from 25-40 years .....to understand the education required for that, the trials and tribulations they underwent, the sacrifices they made and the net result of their career decision- even if made in a different time, circumstance and environment;
Target audience is young adults (as they develop personal values and focus on a career choice) and their parents.

Backed by 15+ yrs of career counselling in several premier education institutions, and overseas study in Delhi NCR, I launched an idea successfully in 2014 when 30 professionals came in person (and 4 from overseas via Internet) to share their career journey with 600 High School students in a leading school in Delhi NCR.
Today, the COVID pandemic has brought adversity but also hidden within it, is an opportunity.

Today, the COVID pandemic has brought adversity but also hidden within it, is an opportunity. The opportunity is one of digital connectivity. And so, CareersConnect enables the youth to sit through fascinating career growth stories of 500+ careers from around the globe.
