Living through a pandemic in the 21st century could have been harder. Despite having witnessed and undergone severe changes as individuals, and as a collective, we have also been reminded of where we stand as a community in this digital era. As we stumble into a post-covid world and try to find our balance in these slowly stabilizing times, the one thing that has certainly made this process easier is technology. From the unemployed finding jobs in distant parts of the country while sitting at home, to schools running online classes for their students, technology has been a significant necessity in every aspect. However, this is not news to us. Technology has evolved and revolutionized our personal, academic and professional lives. It has been an ongoing process for a while now, and the same holds true with respect to the role of technology in aiding career counseling.
Technology in Career Counseling
With the increasing number of career options becoming available and more accessible to us today, picking the “right” path becomes even more challenging. While the awareness that there aren’t many limitations in picking any career of interest is satisfying, it is also harder for students to pick the stream that may suit them best. Finding the perfect match may seem too ideal, but with the extent of resources available to us today, it is achievable if done in the right way. New scientific approaches are being introduced to test abilities and interests more accurately, through online psychometric assessment tests. With innovative digital mediums it has become easier to help connect students to the right career coach and online coaching sessions. The use of technology in career coaching is essential, but if not done right, it could lead to confusing the student further.
Career goals are not as obtusely defined anymore – they are more in sync with personal development and growth. People are more aware of their interests and their expectations, not just from the career path they choose to tread, but the impact it may have on the larger picture. Thus, the technology being used in career coaching may remain constant, but it is the onus of the coach to personalise the experience in accordance with every student’s needs.
Plethora of Information
With the obligation to stay at home, everyone turned to their screens and the internet for solace. The world wide web introduced opportunities to people that they didn’t even know existed. But the vast extent of information had a lot to offer – too much, to say the least. With the increasing options
available, one is not limited to mainstream careers – yet one could drown in the extent of possibilities at their disposal. Our Partner Platform is that buoy one can hold onto in this vast ocean of possibilities. An online repository that helps a career coach by keeping them up to date with the latest developments in their sector, the platform acts as a mighty tool for coaches so that they can spend more time helping their clients discover their potential.
Mindler – Partner Platform
The Partner Platform is a guidance portal equipped with advanced technology, enabling career coaches and schools to understand their students effectively, and efficiently. With its tech-savvy and up-to-date features, it becomes easier to gain profound insights about the students and help them in selecting the most suitable path for their future. The portal, with its extensive resources such as –
- information about myriad career choices
- universities and colleges with the various courses they offer
- their essential requirements,
- and the holistic psychometric assessments
acts as a one-stop destination for guiding students in picking their desired field of study.
As beneficial as it is for students and schools, the Partner Platform helps an individual start their career coaching journey independently. The Software as a Service (SaaS) Platform, integrated with meticulously chosen buckets of knowledge, makes the navigation process of assessing students in finding the right college and career path for them a lot easier.
Along with a customised website to showcase coaching ventures, there are also two formats to choose from:
- Co-branded website: A co-branded platform, with your logo alongside Mindler’s Logo.
- White-labled website: A platform wherein you only have your branding on the website
A collective space of recorded sessions with the student alongside all the details the student feeds in, through the journey of being counseled. This helps keep track of all the steps and discussions being undertaken in a simplified and efficient manner.
Career Guidance Tools
The platform takes care of everything from scratch, to the final step of guiding a child in understanding their abilities, their interests and skills, to the career path that may be best for them, and the colleges they could apply to in order to start their journey towards the said goal:
An extensive cluster of Indian and international universities and colleges, along with their rankings and requirements i.e. the entrance assessments that one needs to take in order to apply to these colleges and universities
Exam Corner (Psychometric Assessment)
