The decisions that young people make at school have a big impact on their lives – affecting not just their further education or employment, but also their family and social lives.

A key function of secondary schools is to prepare students to transition successfully toward a future career path.

Students are more engaged in education and highly motivated about their future when they have a clear understanding of themselves and career options.

Careers are now increasingly seen not as being ‘chosen’ but as being constructed through the series of choices about learning and work that people make throughout their lives.

Supporting students through a planned program in education settings in making well informed choices about subjects can lead them to have a more optimistic outlook on life, sense of education and greater level of contribution that they make to their families and society.

Students often fall into confusion in making the right choices for future career. Many students make career choices based on the advice of family members or friends. They don’t consider their aptitude, work attitude and innate talent until it’s too late.

A professionally trained career counselor will give the clarity and understanding to make the right decisions. This is much needed, especially, when students are prone to taking advice from anyone.

Selecting a career usually, comes after choosing a course. If a student doesn’t pick the right course, it would inadvertently affect their career choice. A recent study showed that 2 in 3 college students are unhappy with the course that they picked. Such figures only point to the importance of career guidance in schools.

If a student is good at Math but have an interest in Arts, so which career option s/he should pick? Decisions made in school often make or break a student’s career. Experienced career professionals help them make the decisions that ensure career success.

Many of the counselors in schools are either psychology teachers or motivators. Recent stats show a whopping 97% of students don’t get any career-related guidance from their schools. Having a career education & guidance cell in schools is a great first step indeed.
