Mentoring youth: my small nonprofit initiative to help Indian youth for better career.

India has been facing the toughest time since Independence. Economy has been performing at sub optimal level. Today (21St August, 2013) , Indian currency have reached lowest level at Rs.64.09/USD . Economic policies are not strong enough to bring some relief to Economy in near future. So there a long uncertain period for students in India .

I have noticed many students passed out from reputed professional degree colleges are looking for jobs. Situation is very grave for less known private and tier II engineering colleges. Even thousands of MBA students are yet to get jobs in corporate. They don’t know to move in their career paths. I have mentored over 100 start ups and coached over 1000 students. Today ,  I have found students are looking for good guidance . This is tough economic situation, and youths want

1. How plan for study/courses for better career?

2. How to get job after graduation?

3. What to select as career path – join an MBA course or foot into corporate straight from Campus   ? (I have coached few students from NITs, IITs )

4. How to make a better career move while on job?

5. How to manage career path during recession? ( Look ,  I am not a guru to teach golden rule , just share some tips to overcome some situation .)

I have seen these questions pop up not only in 10 + 2 students, but also students from premier Institutes such as NIT, IIT , ( in fact ) students from few Top end business schools .

This is my non-profit initiative, so I keep some time free for helping my students. Again I am not an  expert in this field , I am advising them based on Industry experience , Entrepreneurship experience , mentorship experience at IIM , IITs and my own social venture .

I will come with topics and issues and share my views for your information. If these help you, then that will be my fees for this initiatives .
