Some of our most cherished moments are from school and college. Remember the time you graduated? That moment of feeling special and accomplished cannot be compared. To match that feeling and excitement, we, the teams behind Univariety & Global Career Counsellor  Program always come up with events and workshops to stay connected with our Counsellors. 

The commitment is real! So real that even a pandemic couldn’t stop us from connecting and celebrating with our graduating batch of career counsellors. The Global Career Counsellor Program organized an E-Convocation on 18th July 2020, Saturday over ZOOM for more than 250 Trained Global Career Counsellors, their family & friends. 

It was amazing to see 578 people attend the convocation and encourage the graduating batch. We saw people from different professional backgrounds across India. Global Career Counsellor Certification_Convocation_Industry

The day was all the more special as we had the honour and privilege to have some of the most revered industry leaders join us in congratulating this cohort of Brand New Career Counsellors. 

Highlights of the E-Convocation 

Let’s Meet the Industry StalwartsSpeakers at Global Career Counsellor Certification

Opening Keynote

The opening keynote was delivered by the person who accelerated the need for Career Counselling in India. The man who envisioned helping high school students in finding the right career path. Jaideep Gupta, Founder & CEO of Univariety is the one of the first few leaders to bring a change in the Career Counselling industry in India. 

Jaideep has worked extensively in the field of education. And this exposure to the education industry brought him close to understanding his passion for education, eventually leading to the genesis of Univariety.

Univariety is Asia’s largest counselling body. It is India’s largest Career Guidance and College Planning platform for schools & students. Univariety not only contributes in helping schools but has also developed India’s first generation of Career Counsellors by launching the Global Career Counsellor Program in collaboration with UCLA Extension.

Convocation Address

The convocation address was delivered by Denis Couturier, Director, Custom Programs & Corporate Education at UCLA Extension. He is an accomplished leader with over 10 years experience in higher education organizations serving culturally rich, diverse populations exceeding 40,000 students. 

Denis began his career as a Director of Community Services and he quickly became one of the youngest leaders in Quebec Province’s public college system in Canada. Fostering teamwork and establishing a productive work environment, he has achieved great success over the years by being a servant leader with a focus on productivity from a team first perspective.

Commencement Speech

In her commencement speech at UC Riverside, Maya Angelou famously said “I encourage you to live with life. Be courageous, adventurous. Give us tomorrow, more than we deserve.” Such is the power of Commencement Speeches, that the words are remembered for decades thereafter.

We invited a special guest to deliver the Commencement Speech.  The man who conceived the idea of establishing India’s first ‘Global University’ in 2009.  He was appointed as the VC at the age of 34 in 2009 when the Jindal Global University was established. Yes, that’s Professor C. Raj Kumar, a Rhodes Scholar, Founding Vice-Chancellor of O.P. Jindal Global University, Sonipat. He is someone who never fails to leave a room full of people inspired with just his presence.

Professor Kumar has academic qualifications from the University of Oxford, Harvard University, University of Hong Kong, University of Delhi, and Loyola College. He has seven books and over a hundred and fifty publications to his credit and has published widely in peer-reviewed journals, law reviews in Australia, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Singapore, UK, and the USA.
