The journey of the Centre for Career Development started 19 years back (2000) when Mr. Jitin Chawla took a decision to dedicate his life for helping students. After completing his MBA from one of the top business schools, Faculty of Management Studies (University of Delhi), he worked for 5 years with multi-national companies like ICI (paints division) and North India’s largest Media group like Hindustan Times. It was during this period that he noticed students facing issues due to wrong career choices. With the aim of providing simple but detailed & scientific career counseling, Centre for Career Development started on its journey of transforming the lives of talented students by guiding them on the correct career path.
Within a span of just 21 years, we have already conducted more than 18,500 workshops and 300 career fairs in schools.
Not only the schools but our team has been actively conducted workshops and counselling sessions in the top colleges of Delhi such as Hansraj College, Daulat Ram College, Gargi College, IP College of Girls, Keshav Mahavidyalaya & other DU College, Jamia Millia Islamia, Jamia Hamdard, Aligarh Muslim University, IP University, Amity University, Hindu College of Girls, JIMS, Mahindra University & Many more.
Initially, the focus was just on helping students with Indian universities and colleges, but now with changing trends and global education becoming more feasible, our students have reached the top universities in the world. To name a few -Cornell University, Australian National University, London School of Economics, Kings College, University of Melbourne, University of Sydney, National University of Singapore, Babson College, etc.
Not only do students benefit in the journey, but we were also able to collaborate with the various corporates like Tata Steel, Taj group of Hotels, Indian Oil Corp., IFFCO, GAIL, NTPC-PMI, Moser Baer, Hero Honda, etc.
