CAREER COUNSELLING

MAKING THE RIGHT CHOICE AT THE RIGHT TIME

The need for Career Counselling in the present scenario
Whether it is the selection of stream after 10th grade, choosing an ideal college major after 12th, or finding a career path after graduation, discussions about such topics relating to careers have become commonplace. Also, with overseas education becoming a popular trend, often students are confused about whether to study in India or abroad. Unfortunately, due to lack of proper guidance, they arrive at career decisions based on anecdotal information or peer pressure, often steering them in the wrong direction. In this maze, an experienced and well-qualified career counsellor who has in-depth knowledge of career counselling process, psychometric testing, test preparation, and study abroad consulting, could play a vital role by helping students discover their real potential and directing them towards the right career path. Remember, while a good decision at the right point of time can make an individual’s career journey smooth, a wrong one can bring about distress. If you are embroiled in a similar situation, you’ve knocked on the right door!

Why is Career Counselling process sometimes not very fruitful?
The career evaluation process involves completing a battery of psychometric tests, which are a standard and scientific method used to measure the unnoticed skills that are extremely hard to assess during a face to face interview. A career counsellor then evaluates the test results. However, when the tests employed are substandard, the testing process becomes unproductive. The same is true when the results are misconstrued, more likely when a counsellor is either inexperienced or unqualified.
