The major area which is lacked by students in Pakistan is that they lack clarity with regards to their professional careers. This is due to missing link of career counseling but most of the universities have now started counseling for their students. In western countries, each and every university has counselors but the culture is highly developed as all students get some sort of counseling at some level of education. It not only helps student in knowing themselves but also facilitates in choosing an appropriate criterion which ensures a successful and comfortable life ahead. Nevertheless, we aim to bridge this missing link and provide students with complete guidelines related to their futures by educating them on institutes, admissions and career choices.
