We are living in a progressive world today, where technologies are booming there are lots of opportunities in various fields where one can make a better career so career counselling provides guidance to a person to have a clear glimpse on what to pursue by looking at your personality, interest as well as aptitude, how much duration it takes to complete the course, how to enrol for the desired course and what is the fee structure of the course.

Choosing a field of education that is not really suited to your interests or skills could be disastrous and that’s where career counselling comes in.

Now the questions comes why do we need career counselling.

Choosing Right Career

Career counselling helps aspirant to discover their true potential and interest in various career fields in order to help them choose the right career. Several career counsellors use Psychometric Career Assessments to discover the true potential and interest of the aspirants. CareerGuide.com also have 4 different types of scientifically backed psychometric career assessments, one can choose any one of them according to the need. These tests have multiple-choice questions, which don’t need to be prepared for in any way.

Guidance to students

Career counselling is the guidance given to a student on the road he/she should take to achieve his/her goals. The advice and counselling provided is based on 4 deciding factors — personality, aptitude, interest and motivators.

No confusions

Friends and family can very often provide incorrect guidance because their parameters of judging a career choice might be different and based on their own experiences. A counsellor is objective while giving guidance, with no considerations other than your potential and interest.

Dear Aspirant,

Historically, career choices are made by asking parents, friends, relatives, other people - all are very much inclined towards giving advices for free - and at majority of a time those advices lack scientificness, experience and true awareness.

Career choices since ages have been done either through traditional approach where one chooses a career options because all have done the same in the family or by following what others have done. Here total neglect is done for personal abilities, interests, aptitude and emotional connect to a particular career option.

Career Counsellor is an expert who gives unbiased, well informed and true views about a career and checks whether the aspirant is really inclined towards that particular field or no through counselling, interaction, etc. 

Career Counselling is necessary more today since the number of options of careers have become uncountable, and therefore gives room for more confusions. to avoid confusions and to show the correct path for career success, career counselling is needed.

Best wishes
