CareerFirst—an offering from EduIgnite, the career counselling and planning division of Educomp Solutions Ltd, India’s largest Education Company— launched its first Career Resource Centre in Delhi’s prestigious Modern School at Barakhamba road. In the absence of timely career intervention,
awareness and guidance, students often end up choosing inappropriate careers and thus achieve partial success professionally. To empower students to overcome this tendency and make right career decisions, psychometric testing and personalised counselling provided at the right time is crucial. This is where CareerFirst comes in. CareerFirst aims to create career awareness among students of classes 9th to 12th through psychometric assessment backed with counselling and guidance. EduIgnite, by setting up a Career Resource Centre right inside the school, allows students uninterrupted access to information and counselling.
