We at Mentoria are a unique and holistic career discovery platform, enabling students to discover themselves and the careers they will truly enjoy and excel at and handholding them till they start their first job.
There are 3 critical data-points that drive us to do what we do:
* 1 in every 4 teenagers in India is going through depression – WHO 2015
* Every day, 26 students in India commit suicide – Indian Crime Records Bureau 2016
* 55% of India’s working population is unhappy, frustrated and dissatisfied with the careers they are in. – Monster + GVK 2014
After meeting 3000+ students, parents, educators and counsellors to better understand the diverse needs of various stakeholders in an individual’s career decision-making process, we realised that a vast majority of young individuals (in India and globally) end up in courses and careers that they will later detest/be sub-optimal in either due to incorrect parental “guidance” or peer pressure.
With over 12,000 career paths available today and with 800 million jobs forecast to vanish by 2030 due to automation, artificial intelligence and virtual reality, the task is immensely complex for any individual to perform and requires a scientific, accurate psychometric-based approach.
Our belief is that if we could offer students (and their parents) an opportunity to peek into the future career path they are most likely to enjoy traversing and handhold them throughout this discovery process, we could facilitate accurate career decisions, leading to happier individuals, families, and nations.
