Reviews & TestimonialsSince 2014, iDreamCareer has created an enormous footprint that has directly empowered of 4.2 million students across India & the Middle East. Our advanced technological platform, well-delivering psychometric test, & a fleet of 850+ counsellors are eager to bring you benefit.
On the iDreamCareer platform, along with detailed career information, you find so much information about entrance exams, forms and college application dates and even ways to fund your education through scholarships. I have personally seen parents invest 6 to 8 months; in some cases, even up to 02 years – trying to gather information from varied sources. They speak to neighbours, friends and school authorities, they Google endlessly and even then they don’t find the kind of information that iDreamCareer is providing on their platform. This definitely is true empowerment of students and parents, as well as career counsellors who are involved in the process of career guidance to help students find a dream career and college.

I have personally known iDreamCareer since 2016 and I am very impressed about their passionate work. I really appreciate the effort they are devoting to the space of career guidance for a smooth transition from the classroom to the workforce. The thing that I like the most about iDreamCareer team is that they see career guidance in totality and have created inclusiveness. iDreamCareer has curated product and services to cater to the needs of every student independent of socio-economic strata. Over the years they have developed strategies to standardize the process of career guidance in our country by rolling out intense career counsellor training, multiple technology integrated products and making all the stakeholders participate in helping students. I am confident that these are measures in the right direction and private schools must integrate career guidance in the school curriculum to help students and parents.

We chose iDreamCareer to guide our students of class 10th to 12th because they were so unbiased and were not suggesting any particular University or only particular colleges. So if the suggestions are with an open mind then you are exposed to more options available to you. They are not misguiding you towards any particular career or college. My own granddaughter when they counselled her, she realized she had a preconceived notion, but with many more options shown to her, she became open to the idea and wanted to explore further. iDreamCareer as a firm has a very good team of career counsellors. To cater a personalised session for each student, they assigned 07 career counsellors for 05 days for the one-on-one counselling sessions in school. The entire program made my parents so happy and excited and as a School Management member, I felt we have offered parents a good career counselling and they were satisfied.

FAQs about our Services for SchoolsCareer Counselling is a specialized service that needs multiple resources ranging from trained counsellors, to an updated databased and psychometric tests. We combine this all and bundle it as a service of schools of repute eager to benefit their students.
iDreamCareer follows a robust model of an online and offline blend of career guidance which ensures that each student’s needs are met. We not only focus on professional careers but also a wide variety of vocational careers and entry routes to each career. No other organization in India covers professional and vocational careers on the same platform and being multilingual. This definitely differentiates us from our competitors.
iDreamCareer has aggregated information on careers, colleges, entrance exams, scholarships, fellowships, school-level competitions and Government jobs combined with a detailed one-on-one session with each student which makes us a clear leader in the space of career guidance.
Technology as an enabler and to keep career guidance dynamic with the changing times, presently iDreamCareer student and parent dashboard cover information on 2300+ careers, 21,000+ colleges from 16 countries, 1100+ entrance exams, 1200+ scholarships from 15 countries combined with a scholarship management tool. We have also integrated Industry Connect Hub wherein students are connected with college students across the globe and industry experts.
With an experience of 8+ years in the space, we felt the need to standardise the process of career guidance which we achieved through training and building a career counsellor dashboard. iDreamCareer has the largest bandwidth of career counsellors who are well trained and we work to regularly upskill them through many forums like regular webinars, telegram groups and so on.
iDreamCareer’s psychometric analysis of Aptitude, Personality and Interest inventory helps students and career counsellors to narrow down on the top 2-3 career clusters by being able to analyze the 16 factors. We also share with school a career demographic analytics which shows the overall Aptitude areas of the set of students.
Our psychometric career assessment test has been taken by more than 1.9 million students as on date, the result of which has given us many data points to correlate its right application. Even before it was put to use, a sampling of 7238 students was conducted from different geographies to make the test relevant for Indian demographic students. To achieve consistency and reliability, we have achieved acceptable scores of Cronbach’s Alpha parameters.
Ideally, career guidance intervention must begin by 8th or 9th grade by exposing students and parents to multiple career options rather than limiting their options with only a few known career options. Keeping this in mind, we have crafted a very result and target-oriented process to integrate career guidance in the school curriculum.
Multiple studies say career guidance should be an integral part of the school curriculum to converge the efforts and time of students, parents and teachers to lead to something meaningful for students from almost 15 years of school education. Hence, a compulsory model is the most ideal to rule out any discrimination. In spite of this if schools aren’t able to make it a compulsory model let’s explore an optional model together.
For us, it is very important that each student and parent get to meet the career counsellor for at least one personalised one-on-one session. Any additional one-on-one session can be very beneficial for students from Grade 12th to shortlist colleges, scholarships and to understand the college application process. The one-on-one sessions can be planned online or within the school campus. Some of the schools facilitate as many as 05 one-on-one sessions for Grade 12th.
We have designed our program in a way to create a long term process of career guidance. Each student is also mapped to a career counsellor to resolve queries through an online chat. After the one-on-one session, it is followed up with two group sessions in school. Altogether there are four visits in a year including the one for career planning and orientation workshop.
Generally, the number of career counselors are decided basis the total number of students undergoing one-on-one sessions. Our effort is to limit the number of days of intervention to not go beyond 4-5 days in the first phase.
We regularly help schools in scouting a suitable counsellor as we have more than 850+ counsellors in our network who are trained and certified through a systematic process of classroom-based followed by 03 months of online training rather than just a MOOC training.
The symbol of a progressive school is to have a school counsellor who can not only help students with behavioural issues but also create multiple interventions to guide students on career choices, subject and stream selection and college admission process. Our career counsellor dashboard and frequent training and upskilling will help build a more systematic process.
In collaboration with the National Career Development Association, USA we have developed 90 hours of career counselling and guidance training module. School counsellors can join us for our 03 days classroom-based training followed by 03 months of online training. For school teachers, we undertake a 10 hours module within school premises.
We have minimum Turnaround Time(TAT) to provide information to schools to help schools to make the decision in the shortest possible time. Please feel free to reach out to Mr Nitin Duseja-Assistant Vice President on 8130553155 or please drop a mail to [email protected]
