Kolkata:  Waymark, a leading career guidance organization, has joined hands with CareerGuide.com to provide career counselling to the students in North East regions of the country. The company said in a press statement that the vision of the company is to reach out to the students in the region and groom them to become accomplished individuals.

Waymark is a venture started by Mr Jayanta Ghosh who is also an IIM Calcutta alumnus. Waymark is a leading career guidance organisation and is been helping hundreds of students every year to realise their dreams. Waymark has been established with the help and support from leaders in the field of psychology and analytics so as to help the students through latest technologies.

In the wake of those efforts, Waymark Invincible Foundation, a Kolkata based Section 8 company with its edifice on social welfare by means of imparting education for the underprivileged section of the society has associated with CareerGuide.com as a franchise partner for Tripura and Kolkata region. Waymark has been helping students from the North-East regions for their various education related concerns.

The company has a presence in many districts in North and South Tripura including that in Agartala and is currently addressing to 30,000 students in the region. Mr Jayanta Ghosh, Managing Director of Waymark said, “The targeted region has its own set of problems including fewer opportunities, underprivileged students, brain drain and less awareness. Most of the parents there have a perception that there are only two career fields- engineering and medical science. If a student does not get admission in any of the above two fields, it becomes highly frustrating for students as well as their parents. This demands an urgent need to guide the parents as well as students about the scope of different career fields and explore the hidden qualities of students and show them the right path according to their aptitude.”

Waymark considers association with CareerGuide.com to bring greater awareness among the students through online psychometric tests. With the help of CareerGuide.com’s team, Waymark can now make available seven different psychometric tests to the students from North East regions of the country. Psychometric test assesses student’s talents and skills through a combination of questions based on aptitude, logical reasoning, verbal reasoning, situational judgement and behavioural questions. These tests help a student to understand what career can be suitable to them according to their skills. These tests have been designed based on universally accepted Career Test Theories and have been further fine-tuned to suit the Indian education scenario. The resulting report is easy to be understood by the students and their parents which they can use to take career decisions.
