How a Career Counsellor Can Help you to decide the right Career Path

How a Career Counsellor Can Help you to decide the right Career Path

Guidance and counselling hold great values for the education system. The aim of this is to promote individual growth in the right direction. Career guidance and counselling involve exploring the psychological profile of the students, enhancing their areas of strength, working on the barriers, and ultimately, coming down to the best informed educational and career choice for the individual. Generally, career counselling starts with an assessment which tries to measure the overall psychological qualities and traits of the individual. This unique profile is then matched with profiles of different professionals, and the closest match/matches are generally offered to the individual. Other than this, some activity-based explorations are performed to get into the individual’s needs, desires, dreams, and aspiration, keeping the reality constraints into consideration. The task is not ended by coming down to one choice, but information on how to reach this goal is an essential part of this guidance program.

Career Counsellors

The process: 

 Career counselling is not a random act, but a systematic and objective process that helps an individual decide his/her right career path. The knowledge of his strengths and limitations is not provided subjectively or intuitively to him. Rather, a proper assessment is followed by one-to-one or group counselling sessions. This assessment can be a battery of test measuring all the relevant domains of the individual.

Tests for career selection include tests of intelligence, learning styles, aptitude, interest, personality, social and emotional intelligence, motivation etc. These tests are known as psychometric tests, as it quantifies the psychological attributes.

Once assessment generates numbers for different domains, it has to be interpreted to obtain a meaningful picture of the individual. This is the ‘analysis’ part and then a comprehensive report is generated using this data, and counselling sessions are planned.

Career counselling for students begins with the motto to create self-awareness for them. The report that is generated is then discussed with the students so that they get an overview of themselves before taking any decision. Here, they get introduced to their dreams in a more realistic perspective. Next follows the different explorative activities and the matching of the students’ profile with that of the professional’s.

The right career path takes some time to come into focus but comes only after a deep exploration is performed by both counsellor and students together.

Top career counsellors in India: 

Although, career counselling is a newly emerging field, there are career counsellors in India who are working hard to guide the students to become the best version of themselves and achieve a successful career. Some of them are Amrita Singh, Rahul Dasondi, and Sonila Mishra.

Amrita Singh is a PhD and MA in psychology and a certified Global Career Counsellor. She provides career counselling benefits to students across different backgrounds and age groups.

Sonila Mishra has experience in various areas like training, people management, mental health counselling and others.

How Career Counseling helps you to build a better future

We are often stuck with these sets of questions- ‘I don’t know what to do with my life’ ‘I am not sure which course to chose’ ‘I have no idea how to achieve my career goals’. A career counselor helps you to uncover these questions and find a route to a better career ladder, satisfaction, and stability. Career guidance and counseling lead to self-awareness about changing trends, introspection in comparison to a theoretical framework, promoting clarity among students and deepening their understanding of various career prospects.

It helps them to understand themselves and the work trends in order to make a wise decision in choosing a suitable career and education. Career counseling is the new beginning to gain exposure and growth as a profession.

List of questions that may be helpful for narrowing one’s focus when considering a career:

  • What qualifications I have- degree/diploma/professional coursework?
  • What options are you considering?
  • How do you typically go about making decisions?
  • What other factors are important to you as you are making this career decision?
  • Short-term and long-term plans?

Importance of Career Counseling

  • Determine the potential
  • Self-enhancement
  • Creating room to explore and discover various career opportunities/ ideal courses
  • Clear career roadmap
  • Exploring the world of work and workplace
  • Informed choice
  • Aids in improving the overall performance of an individual
  • Career selection and growth
  • Understanding the job market

Today, individuals feel the pressure not only to perform well academically but to maintain a work-life balance, extracurricular activities, internships and schedules in the hope to find a career path that will lead to a successful and happy future. In a career counseling session, the counselor helps an individual to explore their key strengths and weaknesses, area of interest, set of skills they possess and personality type to determine possible career options. They help individuals to deal with their everyday issues, stressful decision making and career discovery, job shadowing and major prospects. Career guidance counselors also recommend possible courses, internships, and volunteer opportunities in order to redefine and refine their career goals.

Career Counseling for students

  • Personal revelations
  1. a wide-ranging personal inventory for self-exploration
  2. habits and skills
  3. self-reflection
  • Identifying themes
  1. Striking trends in your personality
  2. Interest inventory
  • A complete picture
  1. Matching your interests and skills to a line of work
  2. Searching for the right opportunity
  3. Daily lifestyle (work environment, peers, colleagues)

It generally helps individuals to make the right choices in terms of their career path, career development, career change, and growth to maximize success and fulfillment. Career counseling provides you with the necessary tools to understand your passion, interest areas, dynamics of personality, aptitude through various psychometric tests and assessments to make you understand you’re ‘true-calling’.
