To finish all the owes of students related to career counselling, CareerGuide has taken a futuristic step. The startup has successfully launched a partnership with BSNL (Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited) which is the currently the biggest state-owned telecom company of India. With this partnership, the company can now reach out to more than 10 crore Indians. This has been targeted to remove the challenge of geography for the students. Now students located from anywhere in the country can connect to the counselors which are on board with CareerGuide.com.
Surabhi Dewra, co-founder of Careerguide.com said, “BSNL subscribers would now be able to leverage the one-stop career counselling platform, where more than 5 lakh students have been guided on their careers till date. This has been made possible with the support of Spice Digital.” It has been a great achievement for CareerGuide.com and is a big milestone which has been achieved.
Spice Digital, with the help of which this step has been possible is a market leader of providing value added services in the telecom sector. It also provides mobile applications and internet services for individuals and companies. Since, telecom sector is growing rapidly in India, many new services are being evolved and Spice Digital is helping several enterprises to reap benefits of these value added services.
This tri-partnership is of great value to not only the partnering enterprises but also for millions of students across India who are not able to reach a professional career counselor due to lack of access. Now, students even from the rural areas and remote areas can directly avail the services of career guidance, mentorship and counselling from an expert who might be practicing in metro cities. This gives a wider exposure to the students having limited information about different career options. In addition, this step would help the students in saving considerable amount of money and time which is generally spent when a wrong or unsuitable career option is chosen by a student.
Careerguide.com has rightly used the opportunity in the field of career counselling by helping millions of students to connect with career counselors with the help of their phones. This is the right step at the right time when India has already become the world’s second largest smartphone market, with a user base of more than 200 million people. The company’s spokesperson said that the number of cellphone users in India is more than 1 billion and this gives a scope for companies to reach out to the consumers and customers.
So, the company made use of this opportunity and generated an opportunity for students to take right career guidance at the crucial time of their student lives. Through this step, even the users without smartphones can take career counselling to make informative decisions about their career. Further, this step will be helping the students across the country to know more about government initiatives in giving skill training and other certification programs which will enhance the employability of students.
The start-up has started this service in North India in the first phase which will shortly be announced in other regions of the country as well. The students can use a short code of 56300-81 to avail the services. Along with that, this service will commence on Idea network also in couple of weeks. The Idea users will be able to use the services using the code 50050.
