WHAT IS CAREER COUNSELING?

Career counseling, also known as career guidance, is counseling designed to help with choosing, changing, or leaving a career and is available at any stage in life. Most people spend a third of their lives at work, but a 2018 study showed that only 42.3% of people report being satisfied with their career choices. Job stress may lead to anxiety or depression, so finding a fulfilling career is considered to be important to mental well-being and overall happiness. When choosing the most fitting career the services of a career counselor is helpful.

Choosing a career is an important task, but it may also be a difficult one. Career Counselling not only helps students make the right career choice or pick the right course or college, it also enables them to think independently and take the right steps in the right direction. Irrespective of what career choices we make, life will be always full of challenges. An experienced career counselor will guide and motivate a child, student or individual to be prepared for the challenges in life and face them with self-confidence and faith.

CHOOSING A CAREER

Even today, students in our country are forced to follow the ‘typical’ path or profession so as to secure their future, without any risks or challenges in life. However, this approach is ineffective as every student is different in terms of their mental and physical abilities, aptitude, strengths and weaknesses. Career Counselling creates awareness about self and the world of work. How to decide a career depends upon one’s knowledge, skills, values, interest, aptitude, personality, IQ & EQ etc. Career Counselling is all about making all possible permutations and combinations of the above and suggesting the work for future and life. One step that precedes it is Stream Selection or Subject Selection. Career counselling ideally must be taken two years prior to the age of stream selection but must be taken at least a year before. It helps a child to make up his mind, explore and establish the concepts. Career counselling is not just suggesting a stream or course but is giving guidance on prospective opportunities based on national & economic policies and the impact of global economy. It also includes suggesting the efforts required to be put in to get aspiring results.

QUESTIONS THAT CAN HELP

Some of the following questions may be helpful for narrowing one's focus when considering a career choice:

  • What do I enjoy doing?
  • What kinds of activities are fun and fulfilling for me?
  • What am I good at?
  • What qualifications do I need, such as a degree or experience?
  • How much money do I need to make me feel satisfied?
  • Do I want to travel?
  • What are my values?
  • Is it important to me to be of service to others?

HOW CAN WE HELP

In a career counseling session, the counselor will help you to explore

  • Particular skills or talents. In which careers might they be useful?
  • The educational commitment required of various careers.
  • The potential earnings of various careers.
  • The daily working environment.
  • Determine interests and personality type.
  • Administer an IQ test or an aptitude test or any other test as required.

Thus, by consulting a career counsellor, parents can better understand their children and allow them to make the right career choices for a consistent, clear and confident future ahead.
