when we look at time spent in our life a considerable amount of time goes in work & profession. It becomes important to know how do you have planned to spend this substantial amount of time.

We have to make sure how and where and what to select to make a career. To make this choice a bit better it is indeed a good idea to choose a career counsellor. Rather than plunge into what your relative suggestes. It is not necessary that everything the other person has done should be applicable to you. There is no one shoe fit our strategy, it has to be customized. That is why I call my career Team "Career Design expert". Design is required to customize as per the needs of a particular person. Let's look at the qualities and expertise that a career counsellor may have in the new age to figure the future.


1)See that the expert uses reliable and valid tests.

Can you tell someone's future with a fingerprint reader? may be. Don't fall for pseudo testing that happens on a big level. Sometimes testing is not even required. Unless you are doing strength based career choices. Look out for people who conduct tests like DBDA or DAT. Even if it all depends on the interpretation it would still give you results of your ability. Remember, these abilities and results keep changing they are at this particular instance that you have got these results. Don't consider these results as permanent lifelong.

People with no hands have futures too.

2)Don't test only abilities
Abilities is just one part of your personality. you are made up of much more than that. your pattern, your confidence, your flexibility and your relationship with yourself all matter. Don't choose a counsellor who does only one test and jumped the gun. Select an expert who will look at all your strengths. Ensure that the assessment happens in all different levels.

3)career counselling must also be combined with skill counselling

May be you are good at it and one section is good for you. The counselling should not stop here. It should also tell you what must be done About your selection. what must you do more to get the desired results. career comes from the word carrrius (Latin) meaning path way. That is why don't look in the session as a destination giving sermon. Ensure that your counsellor tells you what next 2-3 years will look like the pathway. what to follow, whome to follow, what to read and where to focus in the coming years. Sometime even brief study skill Counselling may also be required.

4) Choose an expert who is updated.
This is challenging but very important. A counsellor may be having a 20 years of experience in career counselling but might not be updated. Many such Counselor keep suggesting a feilds that have no future. Or have less or no demand. one of the factors of career is that the world must need you and you must get paid for it. A premitive cousellor may know your skills but suggest you outdated field.

5 Offbeat Activities Exams are done. Waiting for results can be anxiety provoking. There are ways to make the most out of this little break. There might be a lot of things already in your mind. Things that you are doing or plan to do. To make a structure for that here are some things you can give your time to.

1) Keep your Question papers and worries aside:

Once you have completed your last paper now you do not control them. Keep all you books, notes and question papers aside. Don't be your own examiner and keep guessing your marks, that is not your job. So let's start working on the factors that we control.

Career 1
Think what we can do to build a better career graph & future. No matter how high or less you score, this is a new opportunity. A blank Slate. Everything starts fresh and you can make a difference no matter what marks you get.


2) Design Career options that help you stand out

Meet a career expert and figure out a career growth graph. Take different tests for your abilities and interests. Know your career options. At Metamorphosis we have a career integration expert.

Career counselling


Career Integration Experts will let you know the career combination. Different combinations of new careers can be created. With passing time getting one degree in one area may not be that very useful. So what combination suits you and create a bright future. Career Integration, will help you stand out. Know more about career Integration at our confidence clinic.


3) Hands On experience

You might be already worried about your new tuition class , admission etc. Making space for something new would be a challenge but do take it. Take out some time to work with NGO or different group.

Career counselling
Metamorphosis has as a group called Innovation Adda, you can meet and create projects with like-minded people. This will help you know about people, work in collaboration and manage teams. These are the future skills that companies are looking for. So empathies with teams, groups and know how to mingle.


4)Meet your role models

No matter what Career you plan, meet your role models. Spend a day along with them. See what their career looks like in a day. Meeting a role model is very inspiring and fulfilling.

True north career counselling
Today even if you cannot meet them in person at least you can know more about them on twitter. Look at their career path on their linked-in profile. Sometimes meeting people can give new dimensions to thinking. Try it.


5)Learn unlearn Repeat

One thing that is going to be a basic need of future careers is learning and unlearning. As skills will be new and redundant at a faster pace. Continuous learning can be helpful.

What is a Personal Statement and Why Is It Important?

Graduate and professional schools make their decisions to admit applicants based on test scores, undergraduate academic performance, co-curricular activities, recommendation letters, an interview, and a written essay. Many schools will also ask for a personal statement. The personal statement gives you the chance to write about yourself.

You are competing with hundreds of other applicants who have similar test scores and grades. The personal statement can be the factor that differentiates you from the other candidates. It gives the admissions committee a chance to get a glimpse of you as a person rather than as a set of numbers. A good essay might be the deciding factor in an admissions decision; an unconvincing or unremarkable essay can adversely affect your chances of admission.

The Challenge of Writing a Personal Statement

A personal statement is a very different kind of writing than the analytical writing required in many of your college courses. Your personality needs to emerge from the writing. Admissions Officers will evaluate your ability to communicate clearly and concisely. Your personal statement should be grammatically correct and error-free.

The most effective essays convey a personal dimension. They describe an individual, distinguished by intellectual motivation and accomplishment, social concerns and contributions, and personal values. You may want to develop the essay around an experience, an accomplishment or an interest. It may help to imagine yourself in an interview situation with the admissions officer, or simply talking to a good friend whom you have not seen for a while. What do you want the admissions officers to know about you? Above all, be sure your essay is interesting and well written.

As You Begin to Write Your Personal Statement

Think about your life and why you are applying to graduate or professional schools. Ask yourself, “What do I want the admissions committee to know about me that is not already in my application?”

To get started, you might want to ask yourself the following questions:

• What is important to me?

• What am I interested in?

• What am I proud of?

• What significant experiences have I had?

• What kinds of qualities are necessary for the profession I wish to pursue?

• Why do I think I posses these qualities?

After you have thought about your life and goals, think about the profession you are intending to enter. What are the skills and values of people in that particular profession? How do they match with yours? How can you highlight those values and skills in your personal statement?

Writing Your Personal Statement

• Start early, plan on writing and revising several drafts. Schedule specific times for this important and time consuming task.

• Understand the questions thoroughly.

• Brainstorm your achievements, career goals, leadership, and personal interests.

• Narrow your emphasis to one specific theme or point.

Begin your essay with this theme and the following paragraphs should logically develop and illustrate it.

• Work towards a rough draft. Then revise it. Have others read it.

• Continue to revise the draft until you have a clear, concise, error-free essay.

Interesting and Distinctive Topics

• Significant travel, work or volunteer experience

• Loss of a family member or friend

• Personal triumph, achievement or revelation

• Overcoming or understanding a hardship, disease, injury or loss

• Significant personal influence in your life

• Significant piece of learning, text, reading or painting

It should be clear why you want to enter the field, but avoid writing about why you want to be a doctor, lawyer, and so on, unless specifically asked. In addition, do not waste space telling the admissions committee what the profession is like. Similarly, do not write your life story or concentrate on a high school or earlier experience. Avoid using your statement to provide a laundry list of your accomplishments; this should be found elsewhere in your application. In addition to the content of your personal statement, presentation is also important. Follow writing guidelines and use a font size that is easy to read!
