“Students today have a wide array of career options to choose from. However, with the rise in the number of options, we are also noticing increased confusion,” says Dr. David Reile Executive Coach, Career Development Alliance, USA, as well as the Past President, Career Development Council, USA, while speaking to India Today Education.
“We must also take into consideration that we live in a success-seeking world, and students of the day don’t wish to settle for anything less than what they deserve,” he adds.
Conventional and reasonably secure careers — like the ones parents mostly want for their children – are fast making way for offbeat new-age careers like wildlife photography, data science, and biostatistics.
Career counselling is a crucial requirement at the school level now as students actively seek awareness and guidance and “brave hundreds of questions before they can make a sound career decision,” says the career coach.
Despite the increasing awareness of the need for career guidance, there are still very few career counsellors around.
“As per market estimates, as many as 90 per cent of Indian schools do not have provision for full-time qualified career counsellors,” says Prateek Bhargava, the CEO of Mindler.
