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.
One national crisis that needs urgent attention in India is unemployability. Today, unemployability is perhaps a bigger problem than unemployment. Among others, one major reason for unemployability is a gross mismatch between individual traits and career streams chosen. Thats because traditionally in India, our youth tend to choose their careers hugely influenced by external factors like market demand, peer and parental pressure and job security. Since, on an average, a man or a woman spends approximately 35 years in their respective professions, this mismatch not only leads to a life of average but also leads to immense job dissatisfaction and related stress. At ProBano, we aim to help our youth choose their career path with a judicious mix of self-exploration, technology and pyschometry. We believe that our youth are the best decision makers of their career path. And we believe that this would help them follow their passion, love what they are doing in their careers and lead a life of brilliance.
