This is the first time we tried career counsellor for our son, class 10th, IGCSE. Poonam was very insightful and to the point. We were well guided.

It was a really good experience with Mrs. Poonam Shah. She gave us a very detailed and structured explanation about the future career options for my son. She was very informative about the options of career to choose for my son. She gave us a clarity of which line should he choose for the future. I would highly recommend Aspire/Mrs. Poonam Shah for career counselling.

It was a really good experience with Poonam. She was very thorough and detailed and structured. It helped us build some clarity on what options exist for our child in terms of courses post school and therefore what board we could choose etc. It also helped us understand what comes naturally to our child and what would be a bit of stretch etc. Overall I would highly recommend Aspire and Poonam.
