It is indeed a matter of pride for the parents and the facilitators to see their children / students on the threshold of venturing into a new world by opting for a specific stream of their choice. But the recent boom in career options has made this process of selection a bit difficult and confusing .In a world filled with career choices ranging from medicine to mass communications, engineering to event management, marine biology to information technology – the confusion faced by teenagers for the selection of career is understandable.
To reduce this confusion, Paramount International School ,Sector 23 , Dwarka organized a career counseling session for the students of Class XI along with their parents on 14th April,2012 in the school premises. Dr. Sanjeev Arora, an expert and a noted Public Speaker, Career Counselor, Corporate Trainer and Consultant briefed the parents and the students about the best available career options for students based on their aptitude and academic performance. He cleared many myths that led the audience to believe that there are numerous job opportunities for the students of Commerce and Humanities too which are equally promising and that not everyone can be a doctor, teacher or an engineer.
He further updated the parents about the Psychometric Testing which is a valuable tool for students needing to decide which career path to take as these tests create an accurate picture of their natural aptitude which is matched against different jobs, activities and careers to determine the most befitting career for their personality profile.
The parents thanked and lauded the school management for their appreciable efforts in creating awareness about the stream selection as in this scenario, seeking career counselling from a trained and qualified counselor would help their children discover their true potential and aid them in taking the right decision for themselves.
