In this paper, the author provides a framework for Multilevel Expert System to advice scholars for their future career. The proposed framework aims at providing information to decide the career paths for the academics. The emerging fields of Expert System, Education, and Data Mining are speedily providing new possibilities for collecting, analyzing and guiding the scholars in their careers. Many scholars suffer from taking a right career decision, only a few scholars took the right decision about their careers. A poor career decision of scholars may push his whole life in the dark. Nowadays selecting a right career becomes very difficult for the scholars. Among the works reported in this field, we concentrate only Experts Systems that deal with scholar's career selection problem through Data Mining technique.
