CAREER GUIDANCE IN NUTSHEL
Lack of opportunities for employment, among the educated has increased the awareness and importance of Career Guidance, which is the help given to the student community to select job-oriented courses from the vast ocean of courses, to help them and the jobless community to join the competitive examinations conducted by U.P.S.C. the S.S.C. and the like. Vaguely accepted, widely and secretly practiced, the aim of education seems to be the getting of employment in an organized sector, free from physical exertion, heat, dust and sweat; and a chain of privileges for the minimum work done and a security for his employment., but there is stiff competition among the educated unemployed for berths in organized sectors and those who had planned their career during their student life only would succeed in finding employment. !
COURSE SELECTED --- CAREER DECIDED ;
Courses are of two types ;The Essential and the Non-essential .Essential ones are those ,on passing which, our services are hired by the Government and the society in general , more easily and quickly than if we had passed non-essential courses .Essential courses include any training course in Medical, paramedical , nursing , technological ,engineering ,and professional fields ; Society cannot pull on for long without the services of those trained on essential courses ! Think of a patient standing in a queue for his turn to see the doctor to unload the account of his ailments! Courses in the in the non-essential list may be include many courses in humanities ,few courses in commerce and still few courses in science (Academic) fields--- .those of traditional type/those available in almost all educational institutions / those without any work - experience, mostly. People trained on non-essential courses are wanted for employment rarely, while people trained on essential courses are in demand in job market .Students undergoing non-essential courses must ,along with their main study, get trained in a course of computer field or any other course which would give them work-experience. People who can work are only wanted for service---working manually /on machines /with brain.
Factors To Be Considered While Selecting A Course
Unless one knows all the career openings and opportunities, he/she cannot make a satisfactory and judicious selection of a course. Hence the necessity of elaborate explanation of all job-oriented courses available after each terminal examination. While selecting a course students have to consider certain practical factors for consideration and they are :
1. Select the so-called difficult subjects-combination course difficult for the average students. Everybody wants to the smooth path. A program of study felt difficult during learning but subdued with patience will fetch employment more easily than a course of easy- study.
2. Rare courses have fair chances in employment market, and so look for rare courses taught in rare institutions.
3. Courses newly started fetch job opportunities easily for a few number of years to come.
4. Never join a course of study in which pure academic pursuit is only being done and in case it happens, then join a Professional Examination course or prepare for a competitive examination of U.P.S.C./ S.S. C.or the like
5 .While selecting a course of study, preferences must be given in the following order : Medicine /Para-medicine/ Technology/Engineering ,other fields .
