How to Choose Career

How to Choose Career

How to choose career? That is the crucial question in the life of a school student who is about to be passed out from the school. It is not that easy in choosing a graduate degree. While your higher secondary schooling is planning your future, the execution starts during the graduation. This is the most important period in your life. Why? The reason is that this is the time you shape your future. It is the time to lay down the foundation of your future. Whether you choose three year / four year / 5 year programme, it is important to take this period seriously so that your future is secured. Perhaps this is your turning point in life.

If you are serious about shaping your future at the time of graduation, here are some tips:

From the Indian perspective of higher education, first year of the graduation has a lot of basic subjects, perhaps a little more than what you have learned in the higher secondary class. But the second year is most crucial – especially for those who do their degree in sciences. Core subjects are taught in the second year. The knowledge gained through the subjects in the second year is used in the final year to apply in projects. But it is unfortunate to say that very few students take this seriously and apply the knowledge in the projects. This is very much important for engineering programmes also.

How to choose career?

After graduation:

Students often are confused: whether to go for a job or for higher studies. If at all going for job, whether it should be in the same field as the graduation or something else. Whether to wait for a government job or a private firm, etc. These are quite normal questions that are raised by the students who complete their degree except engineering. Those who are not concerned about the job and the degree don’t need any advice. But for others, it requires some amount of information that may help in choosing the way ahead. From my experience, in the typical Indian scenario, around 75% of the students who complete their degree needs job. No matter what the job is but the job is important. That is usually because of the financial situation at home and parents too needs a financial aid. There are two categories:

  1. Students who are aspirants, but not able to pursue higher studies after graduation
  2. Students who are not aspirants, but continue studies or go for job. – they are happy with anything.

There are some solutions which are practical. Firstly, if the situation is not favourable to pursue higher studies – better go for a job, that too in the same field. In this internet age, it is possible to get a good job in the corresponding field by doing an online research. At least one of your teachers should be able to help you in this regard. Job may not be necessarily within your reach or near to your residence. Going for a job will not only help you to get some earning, but also you get exposed in a working environment that may help in future.

Where there is a will, there is a win.

My suggestion is you have to be confident enough to secure a job. Believe in yourself and there you are! You have to keep hunting for a job of your choice till you find a suitable one. You can even start during your final year itself. You may have to compromise on the perks and salary. Job is very important. Now-a-days, there are lot of online courses offered via internet or you have recognized distance education programmes – best option is IGNOU. You can earn a degree in parallel. Don’t worry, it is all about your performance once you get your first job. If you are performer, a go getter, experience matters. Degree and qualification are secondary. Nobody will ask you where you studied, how much marks, etc. That should be your target, and nothing else. At the same time, you should note that there is no replacement for qualification. So don’t ignore studies.

If the situation is favourable, you can try abroad for MS / Ph.D. There are lot of institutions in Europe offering scholarship for students with good academic background.
