If you want to learn more about us, you're in the right place. Read to learn how we managed to grow our business so fast.
We at ProBano aim to be an enabler who introduces you to the real world outside your classroom. We help you explore new areas, discover your true passion, and make informed career choices, not stereotypical ones
If you'd like to know who we are, here's a li'l bit about us!
I started this website when I was studying Information Technology at IIEST Shibpur. Why though? Because after taking up Information Technology, I soon realized that I am not really passionate about it. So I decided to ask my friends why they had taken up certain branches of engineering. The answers that I heard only pointed to a certain predominant theme in our education system. Lack of awareness about career options!
Our education system never teaches us to look beyond the four walls of the classroom. We learn about democracy, how our country is run, about different landforms, the cause of earthquake, the periodic table, etc. But never are we told about the right way to make career choices, the different career options that we have, what to do if we want to pursue a certain career, etc.
Suddenly after years of studying standardized subjects, we are told to make a career choice. It is then that students and parents realize that they should have thought about it earlier.
This is a huge need, especially in today’s industry ecosystem. Old jobs are being automated and new ones are being created. There are no gatekeepers for any career field like it used to be earlier. If you want to follow your passion, earn a lot of money doing that, and make a positive impact on the world through what you are doing, you are living in the best time in the history of mankind.
That is exactly why we don’t believe in giving you scary lectures about cut throat competition, the race of life and the cruel world waiting for you. We trust your ability to carve a completely unique path for yourself. We trust our ability to work with you and help you in making the right career choice.
My question to you is, do you trust yourself? Are you willing to bet on yourself? If yes, then take that leap of faith and join us. We'd love to help you. Our entire team is standing at the door, waiting to welcome you inside. You can make the right career choice and you can become successful. We can show you how.
I am a part of a lost generation.
We study everything, but know nothing. In truth, we don't actually understand even 20% of all that we claim to know.
I don't want the next generation to be lost. I want them to try out everything, and discover the mines of knowledge that are waiting to be discovered by them.
I hope through ProBano, I can instill curiosity in children (and even adults) towards new fields to which they have never been exposed.
I hope they feel a thirst to gain knowledge for its own sake, for true joy lies in exploration and everything else - career, money and fame - is simply a bonus of having a curious and inquisitive outlook towards life.
The good thing about working in a start-up is that you learn many things very fast. Within the first month of working with ProBano, I learnt about Powtoon and Premier Pro. I learnt when and how to say things, got acquainted with the corporate culture and even learnt how to handle cameras, make storyboards, write scripts and much more.
I joined ProBano because of the 4 P’s i.e., Product, Potential, Purpose, and People.
Product - I really believe that even if we aren’t “changing the world” by making great products, we are really changing things for the better. Today most of us are/will be confused when it comes to making a career choice. Here at ProBano, we make courses that help you to make the right career choice.
Potential - I chose ProBano because I know the value of and difficulties in choosing a right career. In our content creation process, we’re continuously evolving to meet changing topical needs. I chose ProBano because as a fresher, I always needed better insight and capability.
Purpose - Every day we’re working with users to make our content the best it can be. It is a healthy business where we do good things for people and they reward us for the help provided.
People - Lakhs of students every year in some way or the other need a counselor for making their career choice. This happens because of the education system that we currently have in India. Unlike many of the counselors, ProBano helps those students to make their career choice themselves by guiding them through the process.
I stick to ProBano for a lot of reasons, but the biggest one is that it provides so many ways to add value to people’s lives. As a part of this family, I’ve discovered that ProBano is purpose-built to leverage my skills and provide value.
Started by a chap from Kolkata with an almost unrealistic optimism, one can see that he trusts his methods without doubt. ProBano with its unique approach to career guidance wants to help many students explore and discover their passion. So if you need career guidance, we are right here to help you out.
