The Lodestar program allows us to understand the width of options that are possible and it then guides us with a well-researched methodology.

"We were clueless in terms of the currently available study choices, career options and the opportunities those careers could provide in monetary and lifestyle terms. Lodestar Career Guidance program could provide plethora of information in a structured manner enabling us to take appropriate decisions. The interaction with the career guidance specialist serves as a second opinion for the student thereby reducing parental pressure and biases towards the task of identifying right career."

It gave us a better understanding of the number of opportunities available with different study programs.

Myth #1: Engineering is a stable career.
Reality: Due to an unstable or slow-growing economy, millions of engineers struggle to get placed every year.
Myth #2: Engineering jobs pay the best.
Reality: Not anymore. Today, there are many jobs that pay just as well, from nutritionists and content editors to insurance actuaries and UX designers.
Myth #3: Choose science and become an engineer. What other guidance is needed?
Reality: There are several decisions to be made, from stream and college to exam and tutorial.
Myth #4: I can choose a subject based on my child’s strengths.
Reality: A child’s strengths need not always lead to successful careers. Moreover, strengths can change over time.
Myth #5: Eventually, my child will find the right career.
Reality: A U-turn later in life can be much harder, besides costing time and money.
Authentic data and a scientific approach can solve the confusion and help parents make a smart decision!
