THE FOUNDATION FOR A SUCCESSFUL CAREER: CAREER GUIDANCE FOR CLASS X

“A career is not just about earning an income. It’s about pursuing the essence of your life.”

To have a bright and promising career is the dream and goal of the youth. As the world offers a multitude of career options, it’s likely for some to get bewildered, especially when it comes to the matter of making a selection out of the choices.

Career counseling is an essential factor for identifying the real potential and guiding students towards a right career path. Students need to know the importance of career coaching and right guidance before they are going to choose an academic stream after taking the board exams.

As career counseling will be helpful in choosing a career goal, planning and give a direction to students for a better future ahead, a career guidance session was arranged for the students of class X and their parents on 18th January, 2020. Mr. Babu Pallipatt, the Section Officer, MG University, Kottayam was the resource person. He is the State Resource Person of Career Guidance and Counseling Cell of Kerala Higher Secondary and Vocational Higher Secondary Education. He aims at providing ethical, sensitive and confidential counseling to people in all ages by understanding their belief system and encouraging them for self-exploration and facilitation of successful life and career.

He raised awareness on the different career options available. He stressed on the importance of understanding one’s aptitude in pursuing their future goals. The session was truly an informative one.
