As India is progressing towards Education 4.0, it has tremendous potential to achieve exponential growth of intellectual capital for the well-being and prosperity of all. The top most priority of Education 4.0 must be the emphasis on personalization to match the capacity, requirements and pace of individual learners along with interactive, collaborative work. Judicious use of technology will make the entire learning process more engaging and impactful. Accordingly, the assessment systems must be based on analyzing a student's conceptual understanding and critical thinking skills through experiential learning based projects," says Dr. Amrita Dass (Founder-Director, Institute for Career Studies, and Chairperson & Managing Director, ICS Education Ltd.). The ultimate aim of education is to prepare students for life with career choices that would tap their potential to the fullest. Hence, it is essential for them to access the expertise of career guidance counsellors. Keeping in mind that `there are no ideal careers, only ideal choices', it is they who facilitate the best educational and career choices based on a student's aptitudes, interests, talents and aspirations.
