Choosing a Right Career
The choice of a career potentially determines how you will spend
the rest of your life. It determines what you will be doing day in
and day out, what you will be known as, what your life style will
be like, how much you will earn and doing what? Choosing a career
is hence the most critical decision of any oneís life. The very
first decision comes pretty early in life. Right after class VIII,
a student in most schools has to choose between doing O-level or
matric and then comes the choice whether to study the sciences,
business and commerce or arts subjects. The choice in most cases
being largely economic driven. Students prefer towards careers that
promise good fortunes in terms of salaries and perk. However, the
problems start when two many people run after the same career and
the field becomes saturated.
The next factor for a career choice is
family influence and profession. Science and business depends upon
which family they belong. Schools need to play a better role to
provide proper counseling in which they try to discover each
studentís motivation, potential, likes and dislikes. Any science
student can study for an MBA degree even after obtaining his or her
bachelorís degree in science. However, you can not study science at
the Secondary level and hope to become an engineer in University.
Anyone without this basic knowledge of science cannot expect to
enter the field later. Moreover, science education especially in
A-levels helps increase peopleís understanding of life and things
around them and such knowledge is always good to have.
The next point at which choices have
to be made comes when a student is about to leave college and enter
university. If one can not bear to see blood gave them one should
not be forced to become a doctor. Your inner likes and dislikes and
what you are motivated by. Think over and discover what brings you
pleasure in studying or working and what drives you made.
Educational institutions can play a very useful role in making this
crucial stage easier for their students by arranging field visits
or internships which allow students to experience in practical work
situations, what a job in a particular industry or sector is like.
