An innovative skill-fit tool has made an Assam-based career consultancy turn heads in Delhi, says Rajib Roy

 THE NORTHEAST made a mark at the India International Trade Fair 2012 held at Pragati Maidan in New Delhi. The Assam pavilion won the gold medal for being the Best State Pavilion while the other northeastern participant states made good business. They sold out their products.

     Career CliniQ, a unit of Darwin Society, is worth mentioning. Since the theme of this year’s trade fair was Skilling India, all the states had put up in their pavilions various skills their states had to offer. Assam besides displaying its own traditional skills introduced a unique tool to identify the suitability of skill-fit as per a candidate’s personality, behavior and aptitude. “This unique tool, christened as Career Quotient Test (CQ Test), was developed by Career CliniQ after three years of extensive research on subject and knowledge inputs from the head of North Carolina State University, USA. This tool helps identify the best career fit of an individual and accordingly one can choose the requisite training to develop the skill,” said Gargee Barman of Career CliniQ.

     Elaborating on Career CliniQ, she said it is a career diagnosis center for students from class 6 to final year college degree level. “Students along with their parents can counsel the trained and experienced career doctors of Career CliniQ and chalk out a career road map for themselves,” she said. Career CliniQ also got nominated this year in the India Education Awards 2012 for its contribution to student counseling.

     The CQ Test received good response from New Delhi and beyond. Students and parents enthusiastically participated in the test as well as the corresponding counseling. “Most respondents were extremely satisfied with the outcome of the counseling process and were keen on follow-ups in future,” said Gargee.

Given the distance between Guwahati and New Delhi, Career CliniQ is contemplating a branch in the national capital for better service there.

     Gargee’s group has already set up a North India corporate office in New Delhi. Bipul Das, director of Assam Pavilion who promoted Career CliniQ at the trade fair, inaugurated the office on November 28. “It is a matter of great pride that a local venture of Assam is gearing up to capture the national market in a much needed area that remains virgin till date,” said Gargee. She added the venture proved people in the Northeast were on a par with the rest of India and have the ability to showcase their products and services everywhere.

     “As long as quality is maintained, a product or service will remain acceptable to consumers from any part of the globe,” Gargee said.
