India may become the world’s youngest country by 2020, with an average age of 29 years and around 28% of the world’s workforce. India needs career professionals to help people investigate employment and training options. Excellent guidance and counseling services are required to meet the needs of the population and to support lifelong learning, career management and continuous professional development. Certified and accredited career professionals with knowledge and technological skills are essential to assist candidates to find jobs, apprenticeships and trainings, and at school levels to advise students about various career options and facilitate smooth transition from school to work.
