11. Is the Career Assessment Test Result useful to students?

- The test definitely gives the student a guidance in choosing a Career in terms of her/his skills and interest levels and knowledge about different Careers.

 

- They say never judge a book just from its cover. It might happen that a student is interested in 'Aeronautical engineering', but you should also possess a good Mathematical & Analytical Skill. Hence, Allegiance Educare factors & optmizes the following of a student :

1) Interest Level (What kind of Careers he's interested and also what kind of tasks he enjoys more eg. Physical tasks, Artistic tasks, experimenting, etc)

2) Personality and correlating it to relevant Careers.

3) Aptitude ( To test his Capability in performing in a particular Career eg. Good Mathematical skills required as an Aeronautical Engineer)

 

- Usually students choose a Career without any thorough research, but it is also impossible to research each and every Career out there. Hence, the Career Assessment Test narrows down their Career Choices, making it easier for them to choose from a gigantic List of Careers.


- Usually students are exposed to various kind of Careers when they start working and gain some experience in a Company, but by the time they are exposed to Careers of their choice it's too late to move into that Career. The Career Counselling process helps the Student explore more Careers before it is too late to shift to a Career choice and regret not exploring it earlier in their Career. The Result gives you more options other than the same old Careers like engineering, medical, etc.

18. Some Career Counseling Companies have separate Report/Test for Commerce, Science and Arts Students?

Students now a days are also ready to explore careers from different streams, hence we have kept the Shortlisted Career List very raw and prefer not to hide any Careers from Students. We recommend 3 list of Career Titles from where students can choose careers which is a mix of Science, Commerce and Arts Careers. This process cannot be 100% automated, hence Allegiance Educare Counselors are involved in each counseling by preparing the final careerpath manually for each student where we factor the shortlisted career list, student's current status/profile and 3 aspired careers.
