Career Counselling has come as a true gift of modern technology to the new generation. Unlike the yesteryears when there were very few options available to the students, today there are a number of good lucrative career options that are available to the students. On top of that the current level of media exposure leaves a lot of students thoroughly confused. Most of these students and their parents do not know how to take this crucial Career Decision. It is here that Career Counselling comes to the help of the students and parents. But getting access to good and credible Career Counselors remains a big challenge for the students and their parents.
How Career Counselling can help?
Career Counselling can be of great help to todays' young generation and their parents. Career Counselling can help them find those courses or careers where they can really excel and be extra-ordinary performers. Infact, as per a recent bupaworld survey, almost 80% or more people in workplaces today feel stressed out because they are career misfits. To avoid such a scenario, career counselors first find out the real Inherent talent of the student using standardized and reliable Aptitude Test. The Aptitude scores reveal the inherent strength profile of the student. Using the same, the Career Counsellors give guidance to the students about their future course of action.
- Career counselling can help you choose the right stream.
- Career counselling can help you choose the right course after 12th.
- Career counselling can help you plan your career, like if you don't make it to you first course choice, what is the alternative path.
- Career counselling can help you choose the right career as the course after 12th can lead to many types of careers.
However as mentioned above, the biggest problem today is that there is a huge shortage of good and credible Career Counselors. While there are many who masquerade as Career Counselors in many cities and towns; however they are not true career counselors, most of the times their objective is to get the personal information about the student and then somehow persuade them to take admission in second grade colleges and universities. It is here that Genuine Career Counseling comes to the benefit of the students and parents.
