Welcome to the start of exam season. A season where students are on the verge of taking an important step in the right direction towards a glorious career.
But it also brings worries, confusion in making the right decision, parents pressure which brings to a point where proper and unbiased guidance is important to choose the right path. Since this is the exam season, I have been receiving many queries and request for counselling and guidance regarding careers but as you all know that just as a Doctor cannot give you a proper medication prior observation, similarly career cannot be determined without proper discussions as your career should be based on your strong points and weakness. Lately, I have come across some sites which guide students based on the perception of their counsellor and not based on the students’ weakness and strength.
Some of the queries are:-
1) My child has fewer marks in school/college what would be the best career option for him?
2) We hear about creative industries and digital industries. What are these? Is there any scope in these industries?
3) My child is good in school and college but does he need any extra skill in this competitive world?
4) After 12th other than engineering which field has a future scope and what should I study for them?
5) I am in 12th right know what to do after boards? Which course to take and from where and how to get admission?
First, let me solve the query of parents who are confused about the strength and weakness of their children.
A very simple way is to judge the students based on their school subjects marks or you can also take the help of DMIT test to understand the way the student can be judged. Let me elaborate on it.
1) If a student is good in history then the student might be good at imagination and visualization as its learning is all based on imagination and visualization. And there are areas which can suit their interest such as Architecture, designing etc.
2) If he is good is languages he might have a bright future in content writing, blog writing, scriptwriting, journalism etc.
There are various ways which can be used to judge the options available for more guidance as it is a very subjective matter and long details are required to take the right decision.
But another question that is of paramount importance after this decision is that are there any extra skills that are needed or a college degree is enough? If yes how do I know which skills are required?
