A career is dependent on a student’s interests, education, goals, values, mission, vision, and most important skill set. Sometimes a student is not sure about his strengths and weaknesses. He does not know what career pathway his aptitude might support. Other factors might also impact their career choices. Here counselling comes into action. It gives students a deeper insight and makes them familiar with the strengths, weaknesses, and aptitude that they possess. Through their expertise in career development and the labour market, career counsellors can put a student’s strengths and weaknesses in a broad perspective considering their desired salary, personal hobbies, interest, location, job market, and educational possibilities.
Counselling removes the confusion regarding career to a great extent as it helps the students to learn about their potential, showing the right educational path ahead. Career counsellors help to carve out the best version of a student by providing technology and experience-equipped guidance. Constant and continuous interaction between the students and the counsellors brings the most desirable results over time. Counselling empowers students to attain their highest potential through the mode of guidance and enhances the skills of personal inquiry, social responsibility, and academic achievement in them enabling them to become successful, productive, and lifelong learners in this diverse and changing world. Career counselling is a strong chain that connects a student to his desired career field and domain. Career counselling is a never-ending cycle that assists a person with understanding themselves better. If a student goes along a guided way he gets success and life satisfaction.
