Career Guidance, a phrase comprising 2 simple words, is as layered as a concept can get.
Especially in a country like India – with a population of 1.3 billion people and 10 times the number of opinions!
Ranging from our independence till the early 21st century, the concept of a successful academic career has been based on 2 things.
- Marks in exams
- Education or Law which then was overtaken by Medicine or Engineering
We couldn’t be more literal with the definition.
Additionally, the absence of experts who could guide students created a funnel for students to go through while the parents watched and the society acknowledged or dismissed.
The role of career guidance was primarily missed out upon.
And, to fix this missing centerpiece of the jigsaw puzzle, Univariety was founded in 2015. Today, after having impacted millions of lives, the brand is all set to start a new chapter in the field of career guidance.
The journey so far? What is the new chapter?
Let’s find out!
Univariety- The Pioneer In Career Guidance
Since 2015, 7,00,000 students could be pursuing a mainstream career irrespective of their interests and strengths.
Instead, they are pursuing the career choices they have a deep liking for. Furthermore, the subjects they love are their majors.
The icing on the cake, the colleges they dreamt of, are the colleges they are currently studying in or are proud Alumni of.
Today, the country is growing familiar with the diversity in career paths. 10 years ago, what could have been an ‘is-that-a -real thing’ profession, is a popular choice amongst the Gen-Zs.
The challenge here is multilayered.
For example :
- Discussing the possibilities of career choices with the student
- Getting the parents on the same bandwidth as the students
- Interaction with an expert on the matter
- The onset of the career journey
This has precisely been the journey of Univariety since its inception.
The famous saying reads, ‘if the cause of your purpose is noble, then the odds work in favor’.
And our case is no different!
In the past years, we have witnessed and adapted to all the new-age developments in the education sector. Acing versatile challenges and building a reputation around them.
Understanding Career Guidance at Univariety
In 2015, with a realization of the importance and need for professional career counselling, Univariety was formed to create a path for students to reach their dream careers.
The motivation being to provide world-class guidance solutions to students, parents, schools, universities, and counsellors and foster continuous learning within our ecosystem.
Today, Univariety stands as India’s leading career guidance platform for progressive schools to develop their own assets to set up a world-class career guidance system.

In becoming India’s largest career guidance platform, we wouldn’t have been quite there without the involvement of our stakeholders.
