Dear Career aspirant

Welcome to CareerGuide.com
We guide you through to a perfect and proper career.

I am a clinical psychologist as well as a educational psychologist. In career guidance field, you know how these two psychology subjects come handy and helpful. In this case you are not alone at all. There are numarous young people around the world who are unable to decide about their career or future plans. I come across so many such guys in my profession.

Career is life, life style, passion, happiness, life achievement and self attenuation. Career is not about salary or company or people working with you, but it is about work and passion. Therefore, if you choose any wrong step during the cradle phase of your development, you shall be at trouble in your future.

Friends, teachers parents and every other person come out to advice you about the career you should choose immediately on your reaching that age or reaching that qulification. Generally these views hold good. But their opinions are as per their knowledge. Even teachers fail to notice the trends of the future. Some times even parents become a pain in the hip. Ideal is to hear and understand their advices, keep everything in writing, tabulate the pros and cons of each and every options you selected, adviced by your friends, parents, teachers etc. Now you shall be having a list of around 20 possible options as career and future plans.

Now, you hve to decide from that list of 20. You should be awarre of your skills, creativity, learning ability, interests, subjects you understand well, perform well etc. Keep these aspects also in writing.

Next step is to carefully selecting three most suitable optionsfrom the list of 20. While doing this, make sure you are considering the list of your skills and others. If you do not know about your skills and aptitudes, please take a psychometric assessment test which are conducted by educationists or clinicl psychologists. Even this site hve one or two of those psychometric tests.

Decide about your future course of action sincerely, devotianally and carefully. Now your narrowed down list of three is your asset. Now it is easy to select a course according to external factors such as colleges, faculty, job assurance etc.

Hope this clears your doubts.
Good luck.

Hi Janimeet,

This is the situation mostly all students face whikle choosing a acreer.

BNut there is nothing to worry.

One may get advises from Parents, frinds, teachers and coaches.
Though I do not say that you should not l,isten to their advises, but realising ones own potentials and then chosing is extremely important.

Here I would advise you to undergo an Aptitude tests, available here also at Mera career guide.

An Aptitude tests woulkd reveal your abilities and your potentials in 5 areas:

  • Logic: The capacity to reason and ability to deduce answers. required mostly in all fields.

  • Numerical : Mainly your ability to understand basic of numbers and play with numbers. Mainly required for students who wish to take up Financial related careers like Banking, Stock markets, CA

  • Spatial : Ones ability to visualise when object is not present. Mostly required for students who wish to opt for creative fields like designing, architecture, media especially advertisement, web designing etc

  • Mechanical : Ones ability to understand the basics of functioning of machines. Mainly for students who wish to get into technical fields like engineering, product designing,

  • Verbal: Ones ability to communicate and being expressive. Mostly required in all fields, but majorly for students who wish to become editors, journalists, literature professionals.

Though a combination of each factors is required to help you choose a career, but the results will give you a clear picture where your abilities lie, and will help you make a confirmed choice

Dear Aspirant,

Having confusions in career choice is natural. You should definitely know your own interests, since always remember that if you decide a career where your interests do not lye, then it would be a blunder and would result in depression and frustration.

In your case of confusion, it is always best to rely on scientific method in order to arrive at a conclusion and choice of career option.

Psychometric Tests can be the a very good way to ascertain your own capabilities, aspirations, strengths, likings and interests.

To be best sure of what suits you for your career, I would suggest you to undergo an online psychometric test from CareerGuide which will help you understand yourself in respect of your strengths, weaknesses, emotional quotient, etc. and will exactly tell you which career is ideal for you.
You can then call counsellors to discuss.

Best wishes!
