Benjamin Franklin once said, “An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.” Undoubtedly, it is knowledge about a certain subject that gives one a unique identity. One can gain that knowledge by being in an atmosphere of learning, growth and upliftment. That is exactly where a higher education institution comes into play. This blog is about Ms. Sakshi Mittal, who is one of the leading career counsellors in Delhi, and Director at University Leap.
Ms. Sakshi is an alumnus of University of Manchester, UK where she studied Msc in Managerial Psychology. Driven by her passion to help students fulfil their career dreams, she began her dream project University Leap in 2016. Prior to beginning her journey as an Edupreneur, she played a pivotal role in multiple educational organizations – following the same cause. Ms. Sakshi is a certified career consultant by UCLA Extension, and Career Development Alliance. Other licenses and certifications received by her in the field of education counselling can be found in the image below.
She has been vocal about the freedom of students to choose their career goals. And helps them find the best courses suitable for their personality, aptitude and interests. This is mostly done through a psychometric test, which is a scientific method of testing a student’s bent of mind. In one of her interviews to the Indian Express she said, “Just because a child is fascinated by a concept in physics does not mean he/she will fare well in the subject.” Ms. Sakshi also finds the delegation of streams based on marks in schools absurd. On another occasion she said, “It contributes to the notion that commerce and humanities are for weak students. Parents make their children’s careers a prestige issue. They concentrate on a single weakness, and refuse to see the child’s strengths.”
Since its inception University Leap has recognised the fact that every student is unique, and that uniqueness must be appreciated and supported. This also means that every student should follow a career path on the basis of one’s interest, aptitude and mindset. Ms. Sakshi’s aim has always been to form a link between the students and prosperous career opportunities best for them. Following the same thought process, University Leap led by her organised two mega career fairs in 2017 & 2018 by the name of University Connect in Gurugram and Nainital respectively. Over 50 global colleges participated in the meets, where parents and students met delegates from the esteemed universities.
As a consultancy, University Leap has partnered with various schools and universities across India for career counselling. Some of them include GD Goenka School, OP Jindal University, Ashoka University amongst others. Presently ‘University Leap’ resonates with the students of colleges across Delhi, given the firm connect formed with students in the last 2-3 years. One of the big reasons why students are finding great faith in the consultancy is given the personalised guidance of Ms. Sakshi, being a Senior Mentor & Certified Career Counsellor in Delhi.
