What is Career Guidance?

The ‘how’ in choosing the right career is an apprehensive question. It is perfectly natural for an individual to feel uneasy and uncertain about any decision regarding their choice of career, academic growth or professional development. Career guidance can help with eradicating these clouds of doubt and enable you to choose a career field that is right for you.

Importance of Career Guidance.

Career choices and decisions greatly affect our happiness, lifestyle and our future. As our careers drive our enthusiasm and ambition towards a goal to a great extent. It is because of this, many people derive purpose from their careers and are able to work hard and excel in their field as their careers give them purpose. Or, rather they derive purpose from their careers. However, most ambitious individuals go through their life disinterested with their work. They waft through life. They are unable to derive purpose from what they do and thus do not feel obliged to do it wholeheartedly. Their interests and skills do not align with their current career path and hence, they suffer. Though economic independence is necessary and important, in the long run, working in a field that interests you and values your skills will give you greater satisfaction. But which field?

In today’s world, career guidance could make or break your career. Students, as well as working professionals, must give career guidance its due diligence so that their precious time is not spent in various fields that do not contribute to the growth of their career.

Due to globalisation and digitisation, a wide range of career options are now available to choose from.

Career guidance after 12th

The higher secondary years of schooling can be an apprehensive time for students and parents alike. The myriad of options that exist and the lack of information about the paths that lead to them can feel maze-like and troublesome. However, with the right tools and guidance, we at Navigus believe that the talented and inspired youth of today are capable of achieving many great feats.

Hard work and consistency alone is no longer sufficient though. Individuals must also have a direction and goal in mind to work towards. Persistence must be paired with guidance. This can enable students to then make the right decision at the right time. As untimely action is as good as inaction.

Career guidance informs a student/parent about the various career paths that lie ahead. So, they have an ample amount of time to plan and prepare accordingly.

Career guidance after Graduation

Graduation plays a critical role in shaping one’s professional growth and career. After all, you might possess greater knowledge and understanding about a particular stream and field of education than others. Graduation provides the base that you can utilize to build your dreams upon. However, while many students find a way to fulfil their careers and dreams, a majority of them find it difficult to choose the right career option after graduation. Most students decide on a stream after their 12th based on how they fared in their examinations and their interests. Very few students pick a graduation course or stream with possible careers in mind. Delaying the inevitable decision of picking a career by another few years. Hence once graduation date approaches many students return to their previous state of confusion about their career path and options. Their skills have grown, their interests have varied but they still seem unsure. The confusion, after all, was never cleared, just postponed.

On top of this confusion there are now careers and jobs in the market that didn’t exist years ago.

In order to select the best career for yourself after graduation, it is necessary to find out the following about it. What are its growth prospects? What’s the competition like?, Are there availability of jobs?, What are the expectations of the job’s role, etc. There are several many more questions to consider when deciding on a career. And none of the questions or your answers to them should be taken lightly as you will be at your profession, pursuing your career, building your field for a long time.

In a few cases, students might find that they dislike their subjects or would prefer to switch fields and streams. Going through large changes can be frightening and frustrating, especially without support and insufficient information. Thus many don’t go through with the change in time and regret it later on.

You need not be frightened or frustrated any more of such changes, instead, you must rejoice. Be happy about the fact that you have realized where your true potential lies and are looking to improve your life and career prospects.
