A career is born in public, talent in privacy. - Marilyn Monroe.

Nowadays, courses and jobs trends are changing very fast with the latest challenges and technologies; maybe we can name it as an era of Evolution of Careers and Jobs. It is essential to (a) choose a career which suits you and (b) should know the traits to become most successful in the same.

With the ever-changing surrounding, it is becoming essential for an individual to prepare himself/herself to adapt and cope up with the changes. We all face obstacles and challenges in life but keeping the right focus, and a positive attitude always helps in moving forward.

But unfortunately, this is not happening. In the quest for better than the other, we forget that every child is different and every child has the right to choose his/her Career. Just giving birth doesn't give one the right to decide a child's Career. When we push our child for any career option, do we ever analyze the type of skills he/she may need for that Career? Probably a BIG NO, because we even don't know. Even in ancient time, society and state never use to interfere with the education system and its administration. To get an education, a child had to leave home and live with a teacher in a gurukul for the entire duration of his studies.

Why are many parents unable to play their role in helping a child choosing the right direction?

Seeing the crisis among students, an increasing number of suicides, increasing stress among students, parents' hit and trial method of selection of Career for their child, unnecessary pressure from parents and coaching classes, all leads to chaos in a student's life. We can't afford to lose them as they are our future.

In our current education system, marks, grades and certificates are the only measurements of a person's ability. We forget that the most crucial thing called Life Skills gives the capability to an individual to deal with these challenges with a positive attitude and conquer them efficiently. Even some schools are taking care of them and share the result with parents, but as parents, Are we using them to understand the qualities of the child? What is the harm in suggesting some more manageable career goals? It is always wise to have an easy and convenient career goal and achieve success rather than challenging goals that may lead to failure.

Nowadays, we are just pushing the students to achieve a career without knowing their inherent qualities properly. A career selection needs the combined analysis of Aptitude, Interest and Personality. With a combined index, we can suggest career clusters and suitable career options. In this way, we not only increase their success in career goal but also will be to help them avoid going through unnecessary stress and pain.

Psychometric Test deals with the assessment of child's Interest, Personality and Aptitude combined. Psychometric tests are a standard and scientific method used to measure individuals' mental capabilities and behavioural style. Psychometric tests are designed to measure candidates' suitability for a role career based on the required personality characteristics and aptitude (or cognitive abilities) along with interest. This test will generate a complete report for the child, and as a parent, you can always go through the report with the help of a career counsellor.

This is high time. Before suggesting a career to a child, it is crucial that as a parent understand the life span of the profession. Just seeing the trend today, one can't merely predict the nature of the job after a couple of years. Give every child, time to think, explore, understand and decide based on the test so that they should understand the requirement for what they would like to become and that will allow them to fill the gap. That will help them know the importance of Career, the level of competition they need to do with the outer world. Then you see the Miracle. Just hard work will not be enough, then a rickshaw puller does more hard work than anyone. Teach them to blend hard work with smart work. Help them with scientific methods. That will ease their effort, reduce the stress and then they will be able to focus better on the career goal.

Remember, Career is a lifetime goal. Whatever you are going to select as a career, it will be with you actively till retirement and passively throughout life.

Testing for children begins. It is a period when not only children but their parents also get tension. In each of these two to three months, someone will write a test. Children who have been playing and singing for a long time may be reading at this stage with concentration but no good marks. Such a milieu How to Read How to write tests The tribe is concerned. Today, parents are more worried about their parents than exams. They fear that their children will get fewer marks than their neighbours. For this reason, they are pressured to read well, regardless of their children's energy abilities. Teachers at school, and parents at home cause too much stress on children, causing mental and physical conflict.

1. Provide a pleasant place: Children must find a specific location or place to study. They don't understand what they are reading because the four are sitting and reading. As such, you should look for any obstacles. Do not read the movies on TV or DVD. Do not lie down and read the bed as flat. To be calm without any disturbance. Another important thing is to stay awake at night and not lie down on the sidelines. It does not disturb the concentration. It is also an excellent posture to study.

2. Time Limit: When reading, children should be able to decide for 40-45 minutes instead of reading for hours. You have to rest for a while without watching TV in the meantime.

3. Planning: Prepare a chart and write down what you are reading regularly. By preparing the timetable and reading it systematically, the syllabus can be completed by the time the exams arrive.

4. For Relaxation: For Relaxation: Occasional exercises can make you feel happy and relaxed. If they are comfortable, cheerful and enthusiastic without any fear in mind, they can easily pass the tests calmly.

5. Diet: Adequate care should be taken in the matter of the child's diet. They should be fed a diet that is nutritious and nutritious. Drink plenty of freshwaters. Due to that, the tests cannot be written correctly. So you have to eat at the right time. Tea and coffee should be avoided.

6. Sleep: If you do not eat enough at night or sleep at night, you will become physically and mentally exhausted and lose interest in studying. Understanding is not meant to be read. Look for answers to it. The longer the problems begin. It is necessary to feed them and see if sleep is appropriately obtained. It is essential to get enough sleep without sitting down.

7. No stress: Every day from 8 am to 8 pm, i.e. twelve hours is sufficient for children with school and tuition. Continue reading at the time of tests. If you are always involved in this study, they have increased stress. Representation of children This is not good for parents to be stressed and stern.

8. Test: Do not specify how well the tests are put in school. If they test themselves at home, they will have the courage and confidence of the tests will be lost.

9. Negative Thinking: Do not cultivate any kind of negative thinking in your mind concerning reading. We need to think about everything in a positive light. Then fear and anxiety will not prevail.

10. Expert Advice: It is advisable to consult a psychiatrist once the student is under stress. Expert Counseling Inspires Innovation in Children. Considering the role of the parents in the study of the child - parents should always cooperate with the child during the exam. It is the parents' responsibility to provide them with a favourable environment at that time. Also, care should be taken when it comes to child health. Parents are also responsible for ensuring that children are free from any mental and physical stress.

What is Career Planning?

It is a set of organized activities to achieve the desired career goal. Career planning consists of activities and actions that you take to achieve your individual career goals

People ask me Why Career Planning? I say Why Not? When we plan every small thing in life. Even things like going out for dinner with family/friends, then how can we not plan our careers?

Suppose you need to reach a particular place and you do not know the address, the way and don't have the map to reach there. Reaching there would be difficult, right?

There was a time when we had limited career options, but today we have thousands. But we hardly know about a few. What we do is take advice from people who may be successful in one particular field but not necessarily have the knowledge of other career fields and hence are not able to draw a comparison among various options. As a result, we get "fascinated" about a career which might not be suitable for us and we realize that this is not for me after wasting our precious time.

Steps of Career Planning

Learn about yourself & most importantly assess yourself

 What we need to keep in mind is our aptitude, ability and interests because success is SUBJECTIVE and success is different for different people. I understand that many a time it is not easy to assess yourself and people get confused. A professional Career Counsellor can help you with these assessments. Career Counselling has always been necessary but only recently, got the recognition it deserves. A recent study showed that 1 in 3 students are unhappy with the course that they picked. That is nearly half a million dissatisfied university students! Such figures only point to the importance of career planning and guidance

 

Learn about careers

Ask and find answers to the following questions:

What are the career options available?

 How to choose the right one for yourself?

 What competencies do you require to identify career opportunities that suit your strengths?

Make a plan 

  • Find out who can guide you in choosing the best option
  • Take unbiased advice from experts
  • Set career goals
  • Select the right combination of subjects that leads you towards your goal

A successful and happy career is a series of right decisions, and I am sure if you make informed decisions, you will be more successful and will enjoy your career rather than looking at it as a way to earn your living. I wish you have no confusion and choose a job which is rewarding financially and personally.
