[Updated] CareerPro — How’s the counselling going?

Progress

We have completed tasks of actionable step 2 and step 3 which are listed as under:

  1. Setup Social Media Profiles

Challenges

There were a few challenges that we faced:

  1. As our debit cards are not activated for international payment, Aamir had to reach out to his friend for purchasing the domain.
  2. Reaching out to professionals and convince them into attending sessions in short amount of time.
  3. Approaching students was a difficult task but we managed to get a few students from our friends, family and acquaintance.
  4. Interleaving steps led us to redefine roles and assign multiple tasks. Moreover, we had to complete the setup and initial promotion process within 3–4 days so that we can conduct our first session this week.

Significant Changes

We did not make any significant changes. However, we got a few other circles on board with us that shall collaborate with us in following ways:

  • They shall provide information on students that need counselling. In return, we shall survey our session attendees and provide data back to other circles.
  • We shall promote their initiative during break and they shall help us gain more traction by advertising our initiative.

Impact Generated

We haven’t generated any impact yet. We shall be able to report real figures and statistics related to the effectiveness of our initiative, and student feedback after our first session. Other than that, we have a portfolio ready in form of social profiles that we can pitch to the field professionals and students.

Project Sustainability

We plan to get on board very talented and renowned people as guest speakers for our sessions. This shall ensure maximum reach for our platform and help us in sustaining this project for a long time. We aim to conduct at least one counselling session every month after this Fellowship program completes.

W̵h̵a̵t̵’̵s̵ ̵N̵e̵x̵t̵?̵

We shall complete our website which shall:

  • Provide information about our initiative to the general public
  • Contain forms for student registration
  • Show the upcoming sessions
  • Allow people to contact us
