Frequently Asked Questions
What does it mean to EXPERIENCE a career? How does this experience help me decide on a career
We have designed programs that mimic the actual work at any career field. Our mentors are professionals in their respective fields and have designed each of our programs based on their real-life experience. We enable you to do the tasks that these professionals do at their jobs. Each program is a sum of 4-6 tasks that represent ~70% of the actual work on the job. Each task is an activity that you need to do - for example an excel analysis, recording a video, writing a report, etc. Our programs are inspired from Experiential Learning concepts.
By experiencing a career, you will get an inside view into what the work actually looks like. According to Deloitte, 80% of people are unhappy at their jobs and this is because people don't realise what these jobs actually entail. We want to help you realise the true nature of work before deciding on a career. Further our Affinity forms help you interospect and realise your true passion
How is EdVision Labs different from traditional career counseling options?
While we employ traditional career counseling tools, like personality tests and affinity forms, our main service is allowing students to actually experience the different work at jobs. We help you make an informed decision by living a day in the life of different careers. We are complementary to traditional career counseling
Is this an online program (or) Do I need to go to a classroom or location?
All our programs are 100% online. We want to ensure that students get access to our programs irrespective of where they are located and so that you can experience our programs from anywhere
Is this a seminar or video lecture?
Absolutely not! We belive in experiencing everything. You wouldn't decide to keep a T Shirt without trying it on first so why decide a career before trying them out. When you sign up for our programs you will get your hands dirty and actually do the work
Who are the mentors? Are there live sessions/ workshops?
Our mentors are working professionals who are actually doing the job for the career paths that they designed. This ensures that all the tasks in our programs are authentic and truly represent the work on ground. There are no live sessions since our mentors are working professionals. This is a trade off we accepted - working professionals will not be able to provide live classes. But who would you rather have design your program - teachers or actual professionals.
