Why Career Counselling?

In a country where 85 percent students are not clear about which option to choose for higher education, in a country where 92% students don’t receive any career-related guidance from their schools, most of the students select their career on wrong parameters like societal norms, parental expectations, peer pressure and other factors.

On the other hand, higher education in India is very competitive. There is a huge mismatch in the number of good colleges and the number of seats they offer in a particular programme vis-à-vis the number of applicants who appear to take admissions in that particular field. Be it engineering, medicine, law, management or any other professional course, lakhs of students compete for a few thousand seats and the conversion ratio of making it into top colleges is less than 5%. In such a scenario it is very important for students to know about themselves, their strengths, interests, talents, aptitude, motivators, work values and personality orientation to figure out the best career for them so that they excel in the field they choose to pursue their career in.

Professionally qualified career counsellor is in best position to resolve all the career related doubts, queries, misconceptions and wrong notions that students and their parents have about different career options and their future career prospects. With years of experience, knowledge, expertise and skills, a professional qualified career counsellor is able to facilitate the career development process of students and help them achieve their potential by assisting them in figuring the right-fit career as per their interests, aptitude, talents and personality.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1. What is the difference between career guidance and career counselling?

Career counselling is a process that helps individuals to know and understand more about themselves, their abilities, strengths, interests and personality to figure out their right career choice. Whereas career guidance is a process wherein individuals are guided on their roadmap or action plan to help them achieve their chosen career goal. For e.g., if a student is confused about choosing a right career, he needs to first undertake career counselling under qualified career counsellor to figure out his / her right career path and then he / she is guided on how to achieve success in the chosen career path through mentorship and proper guidance.

2. Which one is right for me, career guidance or career counselling?

If one is sure about their career path and just want some advice or second opinion on their chosen career path, then they can opt for career guidance. However, if one is unsure of their career, then career counselling is advisable for them.

3. Is career guidance / career counselling a one-time process?

Career guidance generally requires single session with a career counsellor wherein they can get the required information about their chosen career choice. However, career counselling process generally requires 2 – 4 sessions with a career counsellor wherein their profile is thoroughly assessed through various tools and then students are guided and supported based on the results generated from their profile assessment.

4. Are psychometric tests mandatory for career guidance / career counselling?

Psychometric tests are not required for career guidance wherein a student is generally looking for some information with respect to his / her chosen career, for example, information on courses, colleges, admission process etc. However, psychometric tests are highly recommended for the career counselling process as it provides a 360 degree objective assessment of a student’s profile and provides useful information and insights about his/her personality, interests, abilities, motivators, work values that plays a very important role in defining the right career option for the student.

    I was given fruitful career advice. Till date nobody had understood my issue as well as the counsellor did. Sir provided me with feasible career options and helped me with Course selection. The mentor has broad knowledge in all careers … More and also gave me insights of the salary range in various sectors of my interest field. He guided me as to what approach I must take. Sir was very patient with me and was empathetic. After the consultation, I have so much more clarity about my career and thus it was really beneficial. It is hard to find such sweet and friendly counsellors who invest time in you. I'm truly grateful. Thank God I approached My Career Saathi.
