why career counselling for school students?

    The best place from where young teens can solicit reliable career advise is their schools.
It is at school that a student confronts his/her very first career choice when in eighth grade he/she needs to decide between Science and Commerce subjects. A number of students pick specific subjects simply because their friends are opting for them while some decide according to their parents’ wishes. Only a few select subjects are based on their interests and that also without knowing if their preferred subjects would lead them to their desired careers or not.
school students need career counselling the most. This is because in schools young students are introduced to a range of subjects they can select from, the colleges and universities they can go to and the professions they can enter. We need to discuss their conjectures about different subject combinations and describe to them what the job market looks like. They need to know which professions are in demand and which fields have saturated.
In schools, career counselling largely revolves around students’ interests and skills only to guide them towards the most felicitous career path. We shouldn’t expect absolute clarity and decisiveness because as teenagers, they are still growing up. They need time and exposure to identify what they want to do with their lives. I encourage students to talk about their favourite subjects and inform them about the most relevant professional choices that are available based on their interests.
Career counselors believe that schools are the platforms where students explore, experiment and enhance their life skills. It is during adolescence that they learn to communicate and interact with diverse groups, acquire problem-solving skills, polish their critical thinking abilities and recognise the importance of teamwork.
