The Career Counselors at Fountainhead helped me understand the scope of the subject of my interest which helped me decide to pursue Psychology. I also received good support from School and counselors during the university application process.

I was inclined towards Hospitality, Business Management & Finance and was in a dilemma about which career I should pursue. Based on my interactions with the career counselors I underwent an internship in Grade 9 at a reputed Finance company based in Surat & learned about various task responsibilities in the sector. Though I was moderately aware of accountancy, the internship experience helped me filter my career choices.

The counseling team at Fountainhead was very helpful and always responded to my queries promptly. For instance, I remember the admission process in Christ University was tough as our IB board results came late but with the positive approach by the team the process became so much easier.

We had to take Psychometric tests as a part of the career counseling process which I took very seriously. Initially, I was very sure that I don't like Science and wouldn't chase the same as well. After a session with the counselors, I got to know that I also should not get into something very technical, rather choose something where I have to deal with people. It helped me identify all other, unexplored areas before deciding on a career.
