This is the right time to prepare children for future careers. I am so happy to know that there are some parents who take interest in their child's career from the time when they are still in school. Parents usually leave it on time when it comes. I appreciate your concern.

Before i start with what she should do , i would like you to understand very clearly whether she is genuinely interested in these sectors or not. Now a days children get attracted towards more paying jobs with out going into the details of that field. So just take your call and ask her.

Your daughter wants to go for civil services and for petroleum and chemical engineering. To prepare her for future in these fields you need to make sure that she is good in Mathematics specially. Maths is the main subject to get in to these sectors. so you can prepare her for this from now only. Second important thing is good communication skills. This is another important factor which will help her to get through the various interviews which she will face during and after the course. Petroleum engineers go through lot of hardships while on job. They are not supposed to use cell phones and connect with their people often because their job demands total attention on the field. So socializing will take a back seat.

Systems keep changing with time ,so i do not know whether she is in 8th or she will be going to 8th std . It is better to wait till she completes her high school. Till then what ever i have mentioned above , you can focus on. Minds do change with time, she may get interested in doing some thing else ,so better to wait for a while and then take the step. Wish you all the best in future.

Dear Sir/Madam

I can see you want your daughter to be a civil servant or petro-chemical engineer based on your set criteria. I do understand the common concerns of parents for their kids and ultimate desire for the best--well understood. In due course of such disperation people usually forget the interest of aspirants and academic strength, I wish you are awared of the facts and accordingly you are grooming your child for the said destinations.

First you make it clear with the consent, interest, and understanding of your daughter that whether she wants to opt career in petrochemical or civil services or first opt engineering career then join civil services.

I do appreciate your effort and dream for your child which will prove a panacea for her further preparation.

Now come to the preparatory phase that is the pre-requisite for realization:

1. Ask her to read NCERT books along with the ongoing schooling material either ICSE or CBSE or other board but NCERT gives the elemental knowledge with clarity. In fact this is the right time to incubate the essential stuffs required for both purposes.
2. General criteria of such dignified job is to set your own statement in term of aptitude where one has to develop the contemporary thoughts and aquire the potential to receprocate accordingly. At present you are there as a father, friend, guide and phillospher to trnasmit all these essential seeds into her mind before taking your dream one step ahead.
3. Next level you must be knowing that depends on her school record at 10th level wchih will decide her undergrad study either in humanities (arts), sciences, technology/engineering or something else but all these routes are open for civil services. Start to follow her report card where she is scoring the best but be careful about her appraoch and attitude for that subject where she is the best whether she attempts it naturally or by compulsion. Here your role is very crucial discuss the matter in teacher parents meeting and then ask her to take a lead accordingly, it does not mean rest subjects are useless. You must be knowing at interveiw level for any job panel use to analyze the report of school standard where final assessment is determined.
