Career guidance plays an important role in supporting students' interests, strengths and aspirations. All of us have some certain significant goals or aspirations that we hope to achieve in the future. A well-constructed career plan can assist in reaching these goals and eventually to success. Choosing a career path is one of the most important decision-making ventures in life. However, with various external pressures, selecting the right career can be fairly difficult in this competitive environment.

Many students make career decision hastily without much thought and end up unsatisfied with the job or the profession they are in. The stress and frustration of the job may lead to depression on a person. Career counselling can be very effective in empowering students to realize their inner potential, skills and interest in choosing a satisfying career. In many western countries, career counselling is considered to be a foremost step to be taken before deciding on a permanent career. Career counsellor aims to encourage the youth for making future decisions by sharing awareness of career opportunities and possibilities according to their skills and interests in the chosen course.

MyGov-Arunachal Pradesh invites citizens to share views on the importance of career counselling in making a permanent career decision and how it can help in the development of an individual.

Parents of a child should play the role of his counselors form his childhood.They should observe the activities of their child, and the subjects towards which their child is inclined.They should notice the skills of their child and groom them. Based on these factors two or three areas should be identified. The child should then be encouraged to improve his skills and pursue the course/ subjects identified.IF the child fails in one course/ direction he will have a second/third option to follow.

As a career counsellor & skill coach myself, I would suggest that it is the most important field in developing the inner potential of a child. Now a days the children are very confused on which career to pursue without having any knowledge on for which field they are fit for or what is the thing in which they have more interest. Everything seems confusing. So proper career counsellor & his counselling is the only way out for a child to unleash his dream & to become a resource of teh state.

YES,supporting students' interests, strengths and aspirations is one of the carrier counselling for the students growth in educational sector. So this a positive factor that there should be a counselling management where decision should be taken by the management for there ( students) future growth. Opportunities don't come by itself counselling makes them happen.As a student carrier they should think that they should heal the past,live the present,and should dream about a better future.

However, today there is a dearth of knowledge regarding the various career options. You may feel that you are spoil for choice and cannot make a career decision. Or, you may be confused and uninformed and need someone to guide about the options that are open to you.

This is where a career counselling plays a pivotal role. So what does career counselling involve?



Every student faces a common question. What career do I take up? What course do I opt for? In the olden days, we used to rely on snippets of information that we would hear from people or opt for a conventional choice or depend on the decision that our parents could take. The awareness regarding different streams and sub-streams was much lower at that time.



Once the career route is mapped out, one can pursue ones career goals with focus and dedication. Apart from eradicating confusion and dissatisfaction, mapping out a career route, helps an individual to keep abreast with the development and changes related to ones career field.
