We shape destiny!

We transform lives!

We link education with careers!

Margdarshak Kendra is functioning under the aegis of the Career-linked Education Council, established under statutory provisions of the Govt of India for making policies and planning at the national level to bridge the gap between degrees and career competencies. Margdarshak has developed authentic, appropriate, and effective career development tools and learning management systems to cultivate a culture of “career by choice, not by chance”. Margdarshak provides career education and guidance at the national level.

We began to reinvent career education from the ground level; starting with a few assumptions: that the career decision-making services available to students at school/college are virtually non-existent and pathetically ineffective. Perhaps approx. 94% of us are in the wrong career or under-employed. This includes people who have failed to find a suitable career and others who are in a job that only partially fits their talents, interests and working preferences. This is an unrecognised national disgrace to a country like India.

We have developed authentic, appropriate, and effective career decision-making tools for in-depth assessment of a person’s natural abilities, career aptitudes and work attitudes, which are very helpful in guiding people from the morass of uncertainty to the best possible career selections. Our career management programs enable people to have the most successful, productive, and fulfilling lives possible.

We propagate the philosophy of “Be what you want to be”. We strive to help students and adults find their passions in life and lead them to their dream careers. We encourage young people to think deeply about the things they enjoy most and then translate these into careers that will drive and motivate them for the rest of their lives. We provide the tools to design, monitor, and develop their career which is self-engaging, authentic, impartial, measurable, and transparent.

Our activities take place on an individual basis either face-to-face or distance mode. These include career planning techniques, self-assessment tools, organising studies, work search, and transition services. Our holistic view of the career sector enables us to develop resources that improve the quality of the career decision-making process which opens the doors of success.

Our programmes have just ONE specific focus “Excellence in Career Development”. We live and breathe career counselling; nothing else gets in the way. We are practical, idealists and confident that our career guidance programs are the best in the world. A strong commitment to research and improvement ensures that we stay the best.
