Confused in Career? Get the Best Career Advice

October 2016

Career Counseling is a process that will help you to know and understand yourself and the world of work in order to make career, educational and life decisions.

Selecting the right career is very important as career spans one's adult life and defines an individual, the kind of lifestyle one has, the people one interacts with. In short one's career has an impact on the quality of one's life. Applying for higher education abroad is a critical decision, both financially and emotionally. Therefore, it is mandatory to invest adequate time and effort in order to make the right career decision.

If you are confused about your career we, at Edwise, guide you through the maze of questions to find solutions best suited to your profile and parameters ensuring you choose the best Career Path.

Edwise has professional and experienced counselors, that provide help to identify the professional goals, enable the student to make a wiser academic decision, and give personal guidance to help choose courses that perfectly fit your career or personal goals. We also host direct interviews from university representatives & give comprehensive & unbiased information on various study options. Over 90% of our students are references from our past-students.

The goal of Edwise through career counseling is to not only help you make the decisions you need to make now, but also to give you the knowledge and skills you need in order to make future career and life decisions.

Most importantly we do not make any false promises, 'what we promise, we deliver'

To assist students to select a career scientifically, Edwise has created the Academic Pathway Planning Program.

Academic Pathway Planning

The world is filled with various career choices ranging from medicine to mass communication, engineering to event management, marine biology to information technology. To select the right career from the various options available today, has become a daunting and challenging process. A large number of students continue to choose a career based merely on the fact that thier friends are doing the same thing or because their parents told them to do so. This, however, may not be the best way to go about it. We at Edwise understand the dilemma of the students while choosing the pathways for higher education. To cater to such needs Edwise conducts a vocational guidance program called Academic Pathway Planning.

Academic Pathway Planning involves assessment in 3 areas:

Aptitude: We assess different abilities which helps identify fields one will excell in

Interest: Helps us identify the kind of activities and work one would like to do

Personality: It involves multidimensional personality assessment that helps understand who one truely is, one's character traits, qualities and shortcomings.


Understanding these internal factors is very important and helps at the following stages:

Subject selection
Curriculum selection
Stream selection
Bachelors degree selection
Masters degree selection
Career change/shift


Identify the needs of students so that the appropriate test may be administered from the battery of test available with us.

Paper-pencil psychometric test for students under 18 years of age.

Online psychometric test is for students in degree college or professionals thinking of career shift.


A comprehensive 9-10 page report provides:

An explanation of the report and how to use it.

Graphic scores of the aptitude, interest and personality tests.

An overview narrative report and summary of the results.

Self-improvement plan for personal development and growth.

A consultation with a certified psychologist with a prior appointment.

The results are not a benchmark but an indicator which gives you a platform to work on.

Reports are given by qualified psychologists.

What Edwise Students Says...

"Prior to the APP test, the only interest I had was Aviation. After undergoing the APP test, I realized, I was not fit for Aviation. The tests showed me that my aptitude, interest and personality was leaning more towards Business Management. I liked the option and in consultation with Edwise, I am pursuing Bachelors in Business Management from LIBT, UK."
Shweta Hanspal

"After my graduation, hundreds of emerging career options and different criteria's for admission by different institutions came as a nightmare to me. But after the APP test from Edwise I got a clear view about my career goals. The test helped me decide to go for a designing course which best suited my personality. So after consultation with a counselor from Edwise I am applying for Post Graduation in Designing from UTS Insearch, Australia."
Yazhad Gheesta

"After passing my 10th Grade, I found it extremely difficult deciding my future aspirations. The Academic Pathway Planning Program test proved to be an excellent 'guide' in leading me to the right direction. Using the information the test provided, I was able to choose subjects in the International Bacculaureate program. I would recommend the APP test for all those who are uncertain about their future interests."
Yash Somani

"I was in my last year of graduation and was confused between choosing MS in Computers or an MBA for my higher studies. Then I underwent the Academic Pathway Planning Program test and my test results showed me that my aptitude and interest is more inclined towards MBA. So now I am applying for MBA in Northeastern University, USA. APP test really cleared all my confusion and showed me the right path. "
