Career Guidance

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.

The ultimate aim of “Career guidance” program is to promote career education and create awareness among the student community, thereby bridging the gap between school and the world of work.

We regularly organize Career guidance programs for Class X and XII students who are in a dilemma to decide on a profession. Our program elaborates the career opportunities and guides them in choosing a right career path.

Following topics are covered in the career guidance program:

i) Importance of choosing a career
