Hi I am a commerce student and need guidance on the career options available. The subjects of interest for me are maths and english. I like maths a lot but do not like the chapters sets and relation and function but recently got to know that these are the main chapters in Maths honours. Regarding English , I am interested in doing English honours bit my English isn't that good and my grammar is quite weak so I am afraid wether I will be able to do this course. I like accounts too but the theory part of accounts is a drawback for me. Which course or subject should I select as my career option. Thankyou!
Hello dear student.....
Hello My Dear...
Maths, English, Accounts, Commerce... A very much versatile selection and liking you have in your mind. I can very much understand your dilemma and would like to tell you that you are not the only one who has such dilemmas. So be relaxed and do get worried and tensed. I am glad that you took a right decision of approaching CareerGuide for seeking guidance and clarification. We will surely help you remove your confusion.
Before I advice my part, would like to tell you a bit about myself... I am an Educationist and an Economist! I have been into career counseling for more than seven years now and have been guiding students from the fields of commerce / management / law / engineering / finance. I am also an author and my articles and research papers are published across the nation in reputed newspapers and magazines for more than ten years on topics including career management, finance, law, management, economics, etc. I am also into teaching for some years now.
Looking at your mixed and confused selection, I feel that you are best suited for Chartered Accountancy course or MBA Finance course. Being in the commerce field, English and maths are not the actual careers. If you want to major in English and maths then you should have chosen Arts or Science field for respective fields.
Therefore since you like maths a bit and also accounts a bit, it will be good if you join Chartered Accountancy course or Cost Accountancy course or even Company Secretaryship course. All these courses are professional courses and of high repute in the society and industry with growing job opportunities. If you are not inclined towards these course, then after your BCom graduation you can go for an MBA Finance specialization from a reputed B School.
Lastly I would like to tell you that do not have fear for any subject. Always remember if you put in sincere efforts, practice and dedication you can remove the fear.
I would like to suggest a psychometric assessment for you which is also available on CareerGuide.com.com which you can do it yourself at your home. That will help you greatly to know your inclination and abilities for successful career.
Best Luck My Dear...
