The game, developed by Quest Alliance, helps students largely from vulnerable sections of the society navigate different career choices and understand likely feedback from parents, peers and society on their choices, the statement said, adding that it has been tested with over 1,000 students across the country.
Career Quest helps students rehearse various career scenarios through simulations and evaluate the role of gender stereotypes, peer pressure and parental negotiations in their decision-making process.
The game is specially designed to help lakhs of students from low socio-economic sections who struggle with career path navigation.
Aakash Sethi, CEO of Quest Alliance, said in the statement that the game aids in bringing out dilemmas that influence career decisions and allows a student to play out different scenarios in the process of career exploration.
Sethi explained that many students struggle to evaluate career options as lack of exposure, gender stereotypes, peer pressure and parental negotiations make this journey a difficult one.
