Choosing the right career is both crucial and important in today’s competitive and unforgiving society. The right career nurtures your innate abilities and reaches your life to the height you desire and deserve. While choosing your career after higher secondary ask these significant questions to never regret your decision!
Primarily, ask yourself and introspect upon – What is that one interest that keep you burning with a desire to accomplish it? How well-nurtured is the interest? To clear you out on the implications of the above mentioned, these questions would help you zero down on that exact profession that both suits you the best, and as well, keeps you engaged all along the time at work. In other words, this introspection would land you in a job you would not crib or rant about later in life.
What are your skills as such? How well can you exhibit them?
You need to create a checklist of all your skillset to arrive at the right career option. This would help you excel faster in your career as you already have traits that exhibit the required skills. Make sure you consistently address both your hard and soft skills. As a matter of fact, if you make this checklist earlier than the end of your higher secondary, you can work on soft skills corresponding to the hard skills you possess.
Will I get a job in the career I choose?
Employment is essential for you to thrive! Make sure when you opt a career that offers less employment opportunities compared to the others in the market, you work on the skills that are exclusive for the profession. This would help you readily accept challenges and lead the competition, ensuring a worthy placement.
Where do you intend to settle?
With a change in the landscape, a steep linguistic change is noticed; on similar lines, a very profound change in the profession and literature can be observed as well. Owing to the aforementioned, pay heed to where you intend to be. For example, the aerospace industry is not very well established in India; there a fewer opportunities as there are for a mechanical engineer while the industry is very well established in Germany and the United States. Make sure you make such analogies when you decide your career!
What scope do I have after this certification?
There is no point in being a sheep in an ignorant herd! Never take up a career in which you yourself cannot find a positive future. Look up the scope for the career you opt with a targeted focus on the aforementioned. Finally, understand your morals and ethics! To be clear on the point, if you are a leftist, do not swim in a right wing pond! Make sure you find the right career and prepare yourself with the required skill set for a brighter future.
