A career refers to an occupation one takes up for a long period of time. Each profession comes with its own limitations and advantages. Choosing a career based on one's personality, aptitude, and skills can make the process of getting proper qualifications easier. A career path can be defined as a long term plan including a series of potential jobs to advance in a particular industry. However, choosing a career can be a multifaceted problem.
Career development is closely tied with education. Choosing a career requires a lot of patience, research and self-analysis. If a child opts for a stream or career that he or she can not enjoy, further education will become frustrating instead of enriching. Therefore, it is essential for students to have clarity of purpose and goals while opting for higher education or choosing subjects.
Being clear on the profession one wants to join can make the process smoother and allow better use of opportunities. However, children might find it difficult to choose one that suits them in the diverse and vast professional landscape.
Children who have been exposed to a wider range of interests and activities find it easier to choose an appropriate and suitable occupation. Lately, various schools and educational institutions have begun incorporating different events and career guidance to help students.
Career cells or in-house committees provide career guidance to address the issue of choosing a good career. Children are routinely informed about various possible career choices. Students are taught how to best approach them such as the kind of skills, experience, degrees, and knowledge required for their optimal career choice.
Such cells also hold events where they invite professionals to come and educate the students about their occupation. Some of these include counsellors whom the students can approach individually for career guidance.
