How to Plan your Career
While doing schooling or as soon as a young child comes out of school he or she is confronted with the problem of choosing which is the most appropriate stream of studies for them to study further i.e. Humanities, Non-Medical, Medical, Commerce, Arts, Agriculture, Vocational courses etc. This decision will set limit for his future choice of career. Leaving aside some common overlapping fields of occupation he is left with the option to make a choice of his career from the fields of occupation covered under that stream of education only. Therefore, such choice of stream must be right one so that he will not have to regret for a wrong choice later on. Thus, this exercise of choice has assumed great significance in his life.
Of course, you as a parent will pool your all resources to best guide your child in an effort to make most suitable choice for him. You will also elicit the help of his teachers as well as known persons and your relatives. Your combined efforts may lead to a realistic choice of course which will ultimately take him to enter an occupation of that field but it is also possible that in absence of proper analysis of your child, you may make a decision which may turn out to be an unrealistic one.
If your child is very bright and his targeted career is below his potential it is termed as an unrealistic choice. Similarly, if your child has middle level abilities but his choice of career needs higher level of abilities such a choice will also be considered an unrealistic one. Hence, your child needs assistance of an expert to steer him out of such problematic situations in order to make a right choice.
