Guiding Through the Road to Success


Career counselling is important for all students, be it for those from urban schools or rural ones. It helps them in understanding their strengths and weaknesses as well as the career opportunities they can pursue once they graduate. Unfortunately, for children from underprivileged homes and studying in government schools, career counselling is a luxury they cannot afford and have little access to. 

We realised that coming from impoverished backgrounds should never be a reason for a child being deprived of exploring their interests and opportunities. With this agenda in mind, we launched the career-counselling program Saarthi to provide these underprivileged students with career counselling. Over 500 of our Hero FinCorp employees have volunteered to support this initiative. 

This program is a collaboration between Hero FinCorp, RKMF and iDreamCareer.

How We Do It / A 4-step Program

The program has four comprehensive activities and is 12-hours long:

  • Career Planning Orientation
    • This is a 2-hour session where a student is made to go through everything he/she needs to consider before charting out a career path. 
  • Phychometric Career Assessment
    • This test is conducted both online and offline. The psychometric career assessment test evaluates students’ personalities, aptitude and interests.
    • Career Awareness Workshop
      • This workshop will help the students know about the various careers that exist in different verticals.
      • Report Reading & Portal Orientation
        • Help the students to read the reports and  the student to access the career information on the portal.
