Syed Omer Jaleel, commissioner and secretary, who launched this initiative, said that this would help more than 4 lakh students studying in Class XII in the government and private colleges across the state. The initiative is launched in collaboration with Campuscrop, a Hyderabad-based AI & IT Enabled Career Assessment company.
The portal will have comprehensive information about 350+ career choices, 1,500 entrance examinations for different universities, 30,000 colleges and vocational institutes across the country. The career guidance portal will enable students to choose a career path that matches their aspirations and interests based on five dimensions in their personality that includes their abilities, interests, learning capabilities, etc.
“Students always find it strenuous to choose the most suitable career path matching their interest and goals and lack of availability of the entire information at one place, TSCIE Career Guidance Portal will be a one-stop portal to ensure that the students are well equipped with the tools they need to make an informed career decision, ”said Jaleel adding that assessments will be available in Hindi, Telugu, and English.
As a part of the initiative, the nominated teachers and state counsellors of the TSBIE will be trained virtually on the platform. All the colleges will be enrolled into the portal in the first stage and later students will be guided to take career assessments and reports will be shared accordingly.
“Every student has the right to make an informed career decision based on his interests and goals. Our career guidance portal will empower the students to explore many career options, including new age careers which are not much been spoken of. We are also organizing the world’s first virtual career fair, which will be six months long, wherein the students can meet many educators, colleges, universities etc., ”said Mahesh Naga, Founder and CEO, Campuscrop.
