Humans have come quite far. They have developed the right machines, created new technologies, traveled the moon, and fulfilled every dream that they once thought was impossible. All the discoveries and inventions look like a dream, but it was all hard work and determination of the people that brought change. These developments in various fields opened new gates of opportunities and possibilities for them.
In this age of highly advanced society, there are a few things that are still the same in India. Even today, the parents push their children to choose a career of their wish. Also, career choices are restricted to medicine, engineering, or lawyer. It is unfair to them as there exist a lot of career options that he may feel refreshing.
What if your child loves music and is afraid to admit it? Maybe he does not want to hurt your feelings and go against your will by choosing the more conventional stream. Such a move can destroy a career professionally.
Apart from this, India s population is overwhelming, and it suffers from fundamental problems like unawareness, parental pressure, etc. Therefore they bind themselves to a limited option.
The developed western countries have career counselors in their schools and colleges. The students get the required help not only to choose the right stream but do what they want to do. But, it is not the same situation in India. The need for counseling services in India is high. But the number of such councilors are deficient.
A skilled career counselor tries to know everything about you. He looks deeper into the subject and monitors your personality, interests, background, abilities, and skills. He figures out your potential and tries to connect it to the realistic career that you can have.
