Education changes lives.
It’s ‘that’ ray of hope which can fulfil all your aspirations and transform your life completely.
However, it involves an investment. It is definitely the best investment for our future but the fact that the investment is huge and comes at a great cost cannot be denied either.
Here’s when we say “A career is a life”. And, every student deserves nothing but the best.
“Decisions on careers decide on your future and your life. It is this belief that dictated the creation of Careers360- a belief that students and their parents need a media organisation that speaks on their behalf: informing, educating and guiding, we will be with you when you need us” said Maheshwar Peri, Chairman and Founder.
With this mission, we began our journey 9 years back with an English magazine, followed by its Hindi edition in 2010. With over 100 editions now, our magazine is best known for its content and comprehensive research across education domains like engineering, medicine, law, management, designing and government job exams. We aim at bridging the gap between career planning and lack of information by providing reviews on career and courses, advisories, exam information, rankings and more as said by Mahesh Sarma, Editor-in-Chief “From course alerts to course reviews, from managing mid-career blues to landing your first job, from getting a graduate degree to learning the right skill sets, from handling the interview board to handling the exit interview- we will hold your hand through some of the most important moments of your life”
Keeping up pace with the digital landscape, we launched our website in the year 2012 followed by a mobile application in 2015. By collecting millions of data-points from HRD Ministry and institutions, we built strong and sophisticated prediction and recommendation products for the students to explore and achieve career plans, based on their interests and ability. With over 22 million website visits during the peak season and traffic of over a million students on a single day, our tools and data helps students decide better.
Arastu Zakia, Chief Product Officer believes “On its mission to help the student, Careers360 has mastered information on exams, colleges, courses, reviews, decision making predictors, E-Books and more. We are market leaders but we want to take this to the next level with personalization, counselling and user-centric product, we are now focusing on making even greater impact to ease the anxiety and confusion every higher-education aspirant faces in India. These are exciting times!”
We have come a really long way and each team member, present and the past, takes great pride in what we have achieved. As we grow bigger and better, we do hope that the core DNA remains the same and grows stronger.
