Career Guidance Q&A - Farzad Minoo Damania, Career Counsellor, Career Nurturer 

You can read the entire transcript of the article below:

I am a B.Com graduate. Many of my friends pursued Company secretary course along with their graduation. I would like to do it now after graduation. Is it a good idea or am I too late? – Ms. Batliwala

It has been a general trend to pursue CS along with graduation. However, you can pursue it any time. It is never too late. Since you are graduate, you need not apply for the 1st stage i.e. Foundation exam and can directly register for 2nd stage i.e. Executive Program. Students also consider pursuing LLB or LLB (General) along with the CS course after graduation.

My daughter is in 10th SSC. We are confused about what field she should get into after her 10th. Please guide us? – Mr. Sagar

Your daughter should make a career decision based on her aptitude, skills, interests and personality qualities.  You must consult a career counsellor and make your daughter undergo aptitude and other psychometric tests. This will help you all decide her correct career field. There are several career options that exist after 10th. The career counselling session should be able to guide you on what suits her best based on her abilities.

I am a working professional having background in accounts with over 5 years of work experience. But my highest qualification is 12th pass. Now I want to do my graduation. Is it a good idea? – Ms. Ragini

In today’s time, it has become very important to at least have a graduate degree. Pursuing your graduation is surely a good idea. You may consider B.Com in distance learning mode from University of Mumbai or Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU). Also, taking short term courses or certifications related to your field would also help.

I am interested in pursuing B.Des. (Fashion Designing). Can you tell me about the entrance process for NIFT? – Ms. Sheetal

The entrance exams at National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT) are conducted in two stages. The first stage (written test) will be conducted in February wherein you have to give a creative ability test (CAT) and general ability test (GAT). If you are shortlisted from the written test then you will be eligible for second stage and will be giving a hands-on practical situation test in April. This is followed by group discussion and personal interview.
