What do you want to be when you grow up? Who hasn't faced that question at least once in their lifetime?
Now just reflect upon what Confucius once said - “Find a job you love and you will never work a day in your life." In fact, great men and women in history have frequently preached and practiced the love for their jobs. Napoleon Bonaparte, Mother Teresa, Shakespeare all have shared one common denominator - Passion for their work. Nature, in her subtlety, imparts the same message. A crow can never sing like a cuckoo and neither will he be successful in doing so. Like all the beings in this universe, humans also have a uniqueness and an individuality.Instead of conforming to the general norms, let us understand that each human is crafted differently, blessed with unique talents and personalities which suit particular fields. These fields would, hence, make the maximum use of our potential. The question remains - How does an individual figure out which is the correct field for himself? That’s when career guidance emerges into the picture.
What is career guidance?
When we fall ill, we seek the advice of a doctor to analyse our health. On similar grounds, we can get our personality analysed to determine our strengths, weaknesses, capabilities, characteristics and behavioural traits. This analysis is carried out using a set of tests called the “Psychometric Tests” which include the aptitude, personality and interest test.
An individual can avail career guidance at any point of time; however, it is observed that career guidance is mostly sought after the tenth standard. The young students, during this period, are under great confusion regarding the selection of an appropriate field.
