Why Smartelix - The Inside Story
Growing up, we all have felt the necessity of a go-to-guide for all our career, education stream, subject selection queries.
At all these times, we have been through anxiety, stress and lots of confusion related to decision making, career choices and future aspirations. Some of these included:
⦿ which stream to choose after 10th?
⦿ which course to enroll for after 12th?
⦿ which college to take admission into?
⦿ what career options do we have after education?
…and so on and so forth.
Having been through all these situations personally, we all decided to collectively become solution enablers for all present and future students through Smartelix.
On an average, an adult spends about 35-40 years of their life at workplaces. A good work profile and satified professional roles goes a long way in leading a happy life. To ensure this happens, every student must make well informed and precise career decisions. Hence, our aim is to empower students with knowledge of different careers, their future impact and guide them in making unbaised career decisions with utmost care. We strive to help each student in scientifically figuring his personal strengths and weakness and put them on a path taking them to a successful life.
