There is a common joke about technology that is quite prevalent today – you buy a new computer, bring it home, unpack it and there is an advertisement for a newer model, making yours obsolete. This is a metaphor for the pace at which the digital world is evolving. In this tech day and age, it is only fair to give professional Career Counselling the digital facelift it needs.
Gone are the days when a Career Counsellor would need to spend hours researching colleges, looking for scholarships, or even laying out career plans for their students. Today, with the extensive data resources available, all of this can be done in a few clicks – thanks to state-of-the-art platforms such as the Mindler Partner Portal.
What benefits will this facelift bring?
- Efficiency at its best:
The old system of Career counselling still revolves around maintaining physical files, making notes on paper, doing manual research. With Mindler’s Software as a Service platform, a counsellor is not only armed with the most advanced career mapping tools, but also gets access to an extensive knowledge repository of colleges and their programs.The platform declutters your mind, allowing you to work more efficiently, which is one of the most important factors for growth. Just imagine having to work manually to search each college, each scholarship. A tech-driven platform, will make available all this extra time for you which can be put to more productive use.
- Best in class Psychometric Assessment with no Geographical boundaries:
With everything moving online during this tough COVID period, the flexibility of having a psychometric assessment on an online platform, being able to access it from anywhere around the globe brings down all the geographical barriers that have been formed today. One may not be able to travel to far off locations physically, but one can most certainly guide a student regardless of their location because thanks to technology, the world has become smaller. There is no doubt that Mindler’s psychometric assessment is India’s most sophisticated and cutting-edge tool to determine an individual’s natural learning pattern. The 56-dimensional best in class Psychometric Assessment, not only tests the student on 5 broad domains – Orientation, Interest, Personality, Aptitude, and Emotional Quotient but also provides very actionable results to help both the counsellor and the student.
- The power of AI and Machine Learning at your fingertips:
According to a survey by McKinsey, 50% of people out of one lakh, fifteen thousand persons considered across thirty-three countries indicated a selection of the wrong career, which not only led them to an unsatisfied work-life balance, but also leaving them without much room to grow personally. These wrong choices can be avoided today by getting adequate career guidance one needs, and tools such as AI and Machine Learning which can analyze millions of data points in seconds, giving you the best possible career mapping. Implementing these in our career counselling practices is the way forward. With the evolving world, why should a space such as career-counselling lag behind? We don’t need to be apprehensive about technology but embrace it with open arms.
- A dynamic database of Colleges, Exams, and Scholarships – all under one roof:
Printing out lists of colleges, constantly checking for latest dates and deadlines, checking for individual scholarships, having to maintain a physical database every week, can be really time-consuming, and is a practice that is becoming obsolete very quickly with the aid of revolutionary tech platforms. A tech-driven portal will handle all these tedious tasks for you, giving you the ease of mind to perform better at the more important task at hand – Guiding your students! These dynamic tools update in real-time, enabling you to pass on information to your students that’s not only relevant but also updated.
- Be a step ahead in the industry:
One thing that we have seen time and time again is people’s skepticism towards change. Resistance to change is not a new concept of course but is a problem that still plagues the industry. It prevents professionals from achieving their full potential. While the technology world adapts and moves forward with newer modes of working, other sectors miss out on these perks.
The prime reason for this fear is often a change in work patterns, a learning curve, etc. Platforms such as Mindler’s Partner Portal, have been specifically designed to cater to the career counsellors’ audience keeping in mind these doubts. One will be surprised how intuitive a state-of-the-art platform can be to use, and how it can become the new normal in no time. The learning curve is only as steep as you make it to be, and Mindler makes sure it’s easy for everyone to use.
It is high time that career counselling got the revamp it has been waiting for for over a decade now. Harnessing the power of technology in a space that is looking to learn from the past, help the present students, and shape the future generations, does not sound like something that could have possible cons. If you are still thinking about where to start, we have solved that problem for you as well. Just try our platform with all these perks for free and feel the difference for yourself.
