Need for Career Counselling
Career counselling help students understand their strength and weakness and then match them with their skill and interest so that they get the best suitable career choice. It can improve the performance of students to a great extent, to enable them to grow physically, mentally and emotionally with the knowledge and freedom to make informed career choices. A career guidance and counselling program develop an individual’s competencies in self-knowledge, educational and occupational exploration, and career planning.
The main purpose of career counselling is to help students choose an area that suits their skills and job expectations, not what their friends or family suggests. With the help of career counselling, most of the students choose the right career and perform at their level best, which ultimately helps them to succeed. It can be used to bring about changes to attitudes and thoughts in time as the students get to trust the teaching and counselling staffs as well as those who are involved in running the institutions.
Akash wants to create a dialogue between students, counsellors and facilitating teachers. As students face tremendous pressure while making career decisions. He says, for me, it is a great achievement when I become a reason to bring a change in any of my student’s life. He says, “I feel involved and inclined towards choosing the best careers for the students as per their interests.” He is best at evaluating clients’ background, education, and training, to guide them through making decisions about their careers, such as choosing a new profession and the type of degree to pursue.
