Career Option

OPT for the right career option is quite precarious for both students and their parents. Most of us go through the same dilemma after passing class 12th exams or during graduation. Career options for students who are pursuing professional courses or degree, are quite clear but for the remaining, a lot of thought goes into choosing the right option after graduation

Remember also that these are days of specialisation. Parental apprehension and affliction for conforming to social norms often unconsciously do more harm than good. It is the individual who has to make an appropriate choice after weighing the pros and cons of the various options.This, however, does not mean that parental advice and guidance have no role in shaping your career.

You should feel free to tell your parents what you want to be and why. Your choice should not be bias simply by those of your friends.They may have suitable reasons for making those choices, but your decisive decision should be based on your own cool intelligence.And your appraisal, in turn should be based on adequate information about educational and training requirements needed for entering precise careers. Access to a wide range of information about educational and training opportunities is one of the most imperative for career choice.

When to begin the career planning?
The age that could be considered felicitous for lay the first stone is the age of 14-15 years when you drop in the 9th Class under the 10 + 2 pattern of education; this is the cognizant age to shape your career. However, much more important reason is that after the 10 th a wide variety of course options are available to choose from.

This means when you enter the 10 + 2 level, as the first step you will have to choose from the three streams viz. A) Science B) Arts and humanities C) Commerce with the appropriate combination of subjects. To a great extent, this choice would determine the course options available to you after the 10 + 2 level. For example, if you want to take up medical degree course, you should not only join the science stream but should also opt for the combination comprising Physics, Chemistry and Biology.

A lot depends on the interest of the student but lucrativeness of the career and job prospects also play an important role in making the decision Besides top paying career options such as MBA, Software, Chartered Accountancy, Journalism, Medical, Advertising, PR and architecture, there are multifarious career options like Flying & aviation, Physical education & Sports, Law, Fashion designing, Research & Development and Administrative services.
