During the time of 10th-12th, students have a very crucial time. This is the time when they have to choose their career which will stick to them for almost whole of their life. This is also the time when they are most confused about what career to choose and what could be the best option according to their talents. There are some students who realise their interests early and decide to pursue their career in those fields but still there is always a need of guidance in understanding the scope of those subjects. One can’t make decisions based on limited knowledge. CareerGuide.com talked to one of its students named Gaurav Aggarwal who belongs to Haryana. He has always been a bright student and he knew what he wanted to do but needed a focused guidance on how to approach his career dreams.
Gaurav came to CareerGuide.com when he was in 12th grade. He was doing a recommendable job in school. He always had managerial and entrepreneurial aspirations. He also wanted to start his business one day but could not understand which courses he should take and which colleges to apply that can lead him to his goals. Gaurav’s mother understood his situation and talked to her friends and acquaintances and she was advised to give her son a session of career counselling from some expert. Keen on her son’s career, she took information online and from Facebook about career counsellors and then contacted CareerGuide.com. She talked to one of the team representatives and got convinced that this was the right place for her son to take career counselling.
At the first place, a career counsellor was assigned to Gaurav and a small discussed took place so as to understand Gaurav’s aspirations. This was followed by a Psychometric test so as to analyse Gaurav’s skills in depth and suggest him career based on those skills. His psychometric test revealed about Gaurav having values such as risk-taking, competition and ability to motivate. This clear indicated a strong inclination towards managerial courses where he could nurture his skills further. Career counsellor then carried out 1:1 session with Gaurav so as to advise him a detailed understanding of courses that were available in this field, admission procedure for the colleges, pay packages after graduation and future prospects. He was guided profoundly so that he could make an aware decision on how to take his career forward in this stream.
