Dear Prashant,

Thanks for writing to CareerGuide!

I appreciate your efforts to help your friend. Most important is selection of career is to understand interest, passion and aptitude. It seems that she has very good background in accounts hence MBA Finance would add value to her knowledge and skills. I have few reflective questions for your friend. 

1. What are your interests? 

  • Do you prefer working with people, numbers and data, abstract ideas, or real-world things like animals or equipment? Or some combination?
  • What task you enjoy the most? 
  • Do you like spending time indoors or outdoors?

2.  What are your personality traits?

  • Are you more cooperative or competitive?
  • Do you like interacting with people, or prefer working alone?
  • Do you prefer helping other people, leading and influencing other people, or not working with people?
  • Are you more of a 'thinker' who enjoys ideas, or a 'doer' who enjoys working with things in the real world?
  • Do you consider yourself to be an artistic, creative person, or are you more interested in routine, concrete activities?

3. What are your skills/aptitude?

  • What are your technical skills and knowledge (accounting, management, etc.)? 
  • What are your soft skills (communication, team work, time management, etc.) 
  • Which skills are better?
  • Which skills you think "needs  improvement" ? Which skills you are looking forward to improve?
  • What is your ability to work under tight deadlines, work load?
  • What is your ability to handle crisis? 

4. Where do you see in professional life after 5 years?

Answering these questions would help him/her understand where is she good at, preferred areas of work which will in turn help in selecting suitable career options from Finance and HR.

The most scientific way is to take psychometric assessment and determine career field. S/he can take up Ideal Career Test from www.careerguide.com.

https://www.careerguide.com/know-your-ideal-career

This assessment includes career counselling from career expert, which will enable him/her to zero down career choice and take informed career decision.

Best luck to your friend for choosing right career option. 

With Best Regards,
