You can read the entire transcript of the article below:

Board exams results of Class 10th and Class 12th are expected to be announced soon. But many students are confused and worried about what lies ahead once they steps out of school or college.

Engineering or Medicine? ... CA or Finance? ... Advertising or Journalism? ...

In today’s age, there are abundant career options that you can pursue after Class 10th or 12th. However, while making a career decision students enrol for courses by following herd mentality, taking courses that are most popular, or selecting a course as per what their parents force them to take. Majority of the students take admission to courses without evaluating their abilities, aptitude, or interest. It has been observed that without evaluating their abilities and passion, students have selected Engineering, Medicine or CA courses due to parental pressure or peer influence. But later they realize that they are not fit for that career.

It is high time for students and specifically parents to realise that not every student is cut out to be a doctor, engineer or CA. Instead of blindly selecting a career stream, it would be beneficial to meet a career counsellor who can guide you towards evaluating your abilities and provide career options that suit you.

So, how does Career Counselling benefit you? Here’s a look at how a career counsellor can guide and help you through the confusion of selecting the right path for yourself.

Evaluating your true potential: Career Counsellors use scientific psychological assessment tests to evaluate your abilities w.r.t. aptitude, interests, personality traits and intelligence level. This process helps in identifying your strengths and weaknesses; and thus the counsellor can facilitate your career stream or course selection process.

Insight into career options: With so many specialization options available, students are unaware of what these career options entail. A career counselling session will help you understand details about various careers, courses, entrance exams, job avenues, salary expectations and future scope.

Assistance in goal setting: The counsellor helps you step-by-step towards effective career planning and goal setting in your career endeavours. The counsellor will assist you in setting and achieving your academic and life goals, thus helping you in both personal and professional development.

Inculcating confidence and motivation:  The career counsellor provides essential support to boost your morale. Career Counsellors provide essential guidance issues such as time management, effective study habits, stress management and personality development. You can also get assistance on resume writing, job interview skills training, and college to job transition guidance.
