In a world filled with career choices ranging from medicine to mass communications, engineering to event management, marine biology to information technology, the confusion teenagers face over which career to pick is understandable. A large number of students continue to choose a career based merely on the fact that their friends are doing the same thing or because their parents told them to do so. This, however, may not be the best way to go about it.
Choosing a field of study that is not suited to the student’s interests or skills could prove disastrous. And that’s where career guidance comes in. Career guidance helps students discover their true potential and interest in various subjects in order to help them choose the right career.
