Indore : Don’t know what course or college you should choose for your dream career?
Here is help coming straight from Indian Institute of Management, Indore.
A fifth year student of IPM course at IIM-Indore, Suraj Satyarthi has developed an android app called ‘Kriger Campus’ and website www.kriger.in wherein aspirants can connect with bona fide students of IPM course.
The app can be used by aspirants and parents alike to explore the course in nine sections: Academics, Admission Process, Aptitude Test, Campus, Faculty, Fun-n-Party, Interview, Anti-Ragging and Sports. Apart from these sections, aspirants can also join in the weekly sessions hosted at Google Hangout with IPM students. Aspirants can also get tips on cracking interview and aptitude test on their mobile phones.
Suraj said that every year millions of students appear for numerous entrance exams to get admission into colleges that can open doors to their dream careers.
“But one big issue that almost every single aspirant faces is the lack of information about the college, courses, opportunities and a lot more. Although, there are many online discussion forums aspirants can join in and ask questions, biggest challenge is that anyone can answer those questions without having any credible experience or knowledge about the respective courses or colleges.
“To mitigate this issue, I developed the android app that will connect aspirants with IPM students who will provide guidance to them.”
This app also provides IPM students chance to interact with future junior batches and give real and authentic information about the course.
What makes it interesting is the fact that this forum is an app thus making it easy for users to use it on the go, which other existing discussion forums lack.
Suraj said “Our motto is ‘veritas et conscienitas’ which means – for truth and awareness. And to provide unbiased knowledge to all aspirants in the coming future, more colleges will be added to make this a really big network for college discovery. We are already in talks with few Tier-1 colleges.”
