How Career Counselling Can Help You Infographic
In India, a vast majority of working professionals are unhappy with their jobs, because most of the key educational and career decisions in lives are driven by parental or peer pressure. Career counselling also help your parents understand the career path that matches the best with your personality and introduces them to jobs that they didn’t even know were a thing.
This can largely contribute to bridging the generational gap between the child and the parent that most students struggle to deal with. Based on your interests, the career counsellor can help you prepare for college, by listing the academic high school courses you need to rigorously maintain good grades in. Doing so not only improves your college application credentials but also enhances your readiness for college-level study.
While, everyone’s career planning journey is different, and there isn’t a pre-defined ‘right’ way to start your career, career counselling helps you to identify the start and endpoint so you’re better equipped to achieve your career goals.
For example, a lot of students postpone their college admissions to discover their passion and decide to take a “gap year” after 12th where they have ample opportunities to pursue meaningful work, volunteer or travel experiences. With a career counsellor, you can learn if taking a ‘gap year’ is the best course of action for you, and how you can use your time productively if you do opt for one.
