Importance of Career Counseling

Careers play a significant role in an individual's life after high school. Choosing a profession determines how one lives. With careers being so important, career counseling is also crucial for identifying the true potential in students and guiding them towards the right career path. Taking the board exams should be followed by proper guidance for students as they choose an academic stream.

The purpose of career counseling is to help students choose and determine their career goals as well as to give them direction for the future. It provides students with appropriate career guidance regarding their career options according to their interests and academic streams. These guidelines can help them identify their strengths, weaknesses, and even their interests. Career Counselling helps them understand the career options that they have, and how to pursue their dream career.

Generally speaking, students today choose well-known domains; however, neglect to consider their interest and potential as they select well-known domains. Since this is not based on students' interests, they usually lose interest in that stream and change to another. Often, this occurs since students do not receive appropriate guidance regarding the various academic options available to them. Students can gain insight into their abilities and interest, strengths, and weaknesses through career counseling. It provides lots of options after class 10th for streams and after class 12th for career options, based on their academic stream of choice. So, career counseling is essential to the life and future of each student.
