About "In My Shoes"

“In My Shoes 2016”, is the first ever initiative towards showing students what career paths they can opt for in the looming future. Career guidance has been a neglected faction in our society. When students reach their middle years , they need guidance in discovering their strengths and passions and in reflecting upon their personality. They feel more equipped to plan for the future if they have a strong self-image and have been exposed to the various options that exist out there in the real world.
This issue calls to be addressed, since it is important to demonstrate the pathways a child can choose from, come the time. The event “In My Shoes 2016” at Edopia, aims to address the ambiguities students face when it comes to choosing courses that will help them achieve their future personal and professional goals.

Event’s activities will include:
Edopia has invited 28 speakers from six interest areas, for maximum exposure. Our guests are following passions across a plethora of domains; from animation, to culinary arts, to blogging, to physics, to public health to game design and a lot more. We have carefully designed the program to ensure that the participants do not run short of inspiration and go back home with better questions to ponder over.
Making a good career choice means finding a job that combines the strengths, interests, preferences and personality traits of an individual. These sessions will incorporate activities and discussions that inspire students to reflect on their personal characteristics and qualities. In the process we will also encourage students to get feedback from others they can trust to help build an accurate self-image that can guide successful career choices.
Through these workshops we intend to guide the participants towards choosing careers that match their strengths, interests and personality. The main objective is to introduce students to the idea of making a successful transition into a fulfilling career. The workshops will allow students identify how they can make the most of this period of preparation and transition and make decisions that clarify and support their chosen career path.
