It was believed that career counselling were only for people who are looking for a career/job change. But what people didn’t question was WHY? Why are people unhappy with their career choices?
I am amazed by the number of career choices the students have. Today, we are working in jobs that didn’t even exist 10-15 years ago. The US Department of Labour estimates that 65% of today’s school children will end up working in jobs that doesn’t exist currently. Years before, we relied on information snippets from our elders or would take up conventional career paths or we would take a decision under parental duress. But now, the density of career options we have, have left us confused like never before! So, how do we cope now? Career Counselling?
A recent study has shows that 6 in 10 students are not happy with the stream they are studying and are dissatisfied which may lead to poor performance. Peer pressure is another reason. Without giving much thought, one takes up a subject and realizes it only when it’s too late. A student is good in science but is interested and passionate about literature. Now, what does he choose? What are the career prospects in literature as a career? Should one study in India or abroad? This is just one of the many questions which pops up in the minds of students and parents. Choosing a subject is a pre-requisite which determines your career. So, choosing the right subject affects your career choice. Lack of information about a subject may lead to a wrong decision. One should know what all prospects lie today and what the future is. This all narrows down to one thing : Career Counselling. Making an informed and sound decision at the right time is what matters the most.
