Why Career Counselling?
In today’s time of unlimited career and study options, we often come across school and college and sometimes even young professionals in their early twenties who often have no strong idea of the career they should follow. Choosing the right career is the first step towards that elusive job satisfaction because if you end up in a profession which does not align to your interests and ability, it can cause immense dissatisfaction. It is very important to understand that each person differs in terms of their aptitude, skills, ability and interests. Not every individual is cut out to be a doctor, engineer or a lawyer for example. Thorough career counseling helps assess a person’s interests, talents and ability.
How to choose the right career and know your interests?
The conventional way is to do what your parents were doing or join the commerce stream cause friends are doing so. Uh really?! No please we are talking about a career path that you want to choose, something you will enjoy doing for the rest of your life, discover your passion and go for it. Imagine Sachin Tendulkar as an Engineer or Shreya Ghoshal as a Doctor, well that would have a been a colossal loss now, isn’t it.
The right approach to choose your career path is the one which strikes a correct balance between a person’s interests, aptitude and personality. Many people are not aware that choosing the right subjects, courses, careers or jobs is a SCIENTIFIC PROCESS that can be arrived at by using certain scientific tools like psychometric tests and one-to -one counseling sessions to map a person’s personal and professional profile. Going through a psychological based career assessment and guidance helps you to take a logical decision and find what profession suits you the best.
What is a psychometric test?
Psychometric tests are standardized tests that make use of scientific tools to measure a person’s mental capabilities and behavioral style. These tests are specially designed to measure an individual’s suitability for a specific role based on specific personality traits and aptitude (also called cognitive abilities). With the help of these scientific tools and tests personal characteristics can be identified so that they can be matched with those required for a particular job. Psychometric tests are a powerful source of human characteristics, such as ability or personality. People differ and no two individuals are absolutely the same. Some are introverts, while others are extroverts; some are motivated by money while others are motivated by ideas. The trick is to measure people’s characteristic in a way so that they can be matched to the suitable career they would pursue in the future. Psychometric tests are one of the jewels in the crown of modern psychology.
