Career Prospects beyond Medical and Engineering...

Just close your eyes for few minutes and imagine that every alternate human being you are meeting in this world is either a doctor or an engineer. You are starving but no one is there to give you food, you want cloth but no one is there to manufacture and sell cloths. If it turns into reality then, have you ever wondered what would happen to this world? What would happen to you?? Then why is so that most of the parents want their children to either become a doctor or an engineer? “Career” is one of the most important aspects of our life... Our performance, lifestyle, job satisfaction and livelihood everything depends upon this... One wrong decision can spoil the entire life. But some of the parents take the decision regarding their children's career even without knowing the desire n potential of their kids. The popular movie '3 Idiots' has presented this kind of mind-set and its consequences very nicely. When we see a beautiful dress we admire the designer and immediately pay for the dress to make our wardrobe collection more exclusive. At the same time we train our children that, be a good doctor or engineer so that you can buy more such dresses. But never say that be a fashion designer. We spend thousands of rupees for movies, concerts, art exhibitions, matches. We madly follow our favourite actors, actresses, dancers, sports persons but at the same time we keep suppressing the artistic instinct of our kids by saying that don't waste time in such things, these things are not going to pay your bills. Why is so???  The newspaper you need every morning with your cup of tea or the breaking news you watch in your TV are the results of the restless and dedicated work of some excellent journalists, camera persons, technicians, news anchors and many others. Have you ever thought if their parents would have forced them to become only doctors or engineers then who would have done all these things for you? It is not at all mandatory that if a student is brilliant and have scored well in 12th then he/she must go for medical or engineering. There are other fields too where one can show his Excellency. If the best brains will not come in the fields of trade and commerce, economics, law then how our country’s economy will remain in safe hands? Without these persons the economy will crash as a result of which every citizen of our country have to suffer from financial crises. Now you could have understood that medical and engineering are not the only lucrative professions. There are other works or professions too which are equally prestigious and important as medical and engineering. As per the reports, 95 per cent of engineers in India are not fit for software development jobs. 97 per cent of graduating engineers want jobs either in software engineering or core engineering. However, only 3 per cent have suitable skills to be employed in software or product market, and only 7 per cent are fit for core engineering tasks. Doesn't it seem wastage of money and time???? More the literate unemployment increasing, the more frustration, depression and crimes increasing in our society.  Instead of bearing the tag of unsuccessful engineers, these students could have become successful Teachers, professors, administrative officers, lawyers, bankers, business men, economists, scientists, defence officers, farmers, politicians, writers, artists, architects, fashion designers, pilots, business administrators and industrialists. But a single decision ruined all hopes.  Education experts suggest students don’t always sign up for engineering courses just to become engineers, but in reality, most of them are not passionate about their profession. They don’t enter into this field to design new engines for cars, developing a new gazette, building the next big software giant or taking part in the “Digital India” programme. Most of them simply want a job — any job or a job with the government. Whereas the eligibility criteria to apply for a government job is a ‘graduation degree’. Which costs hardly Rs. 4000 to 5000 for 3years and engineering costs Rs. 4 lakhs to 10 lakhs and the fees vary from institution to institutions. Still, students and parents prefer engineering because they believe that the employers consider an engineering degree holder as more talented and capable compared to those who don’t possess one, regardless of whether the qualification has any direct relevance or implication for the job. In this competitive world the degrees like medical or engineering cannot assure jobs. Then why to confine your children within these streams only?? Let them peep inside their hearts, let them decide which career they want to choose. Because every successful person is of the view that "any work done with passion leads to excellency". Read Also: 

Is online learning a boon or bane- The pros and co...

Today, people are more inclined to their phones or computers than actually going out and interacting with new or old people. Today, people have more virtual friends than real ones... and are more active socially than practically. Same follows in the case of studies, students are more eager to learn through online media than attending extra classes or coaching. But hey, is real teaching actually replaceable? Does new media actually has better teaching standards when compared to classroom education?  This indeed has become a debatable topic over the past few years... well as every single thing has its own pros and cons, similarly online learning to has its side effects as well as productive effects. Undoubtedly there are abundant positive sides to online education but there are certain drawbacks which possibly cannot be ignored. No credibility of resources: It is not at all necessary that the information or data provided online are 100% correct. There are 99% chances of it being wrong… I am not saying that whatever our teachers teach us are wholly correct but at least we are sure that they hold a degree on that specific subject failing which they would not have been appointed to teach. But we have no clue who the actual “GOOGLE GURU” is... Hence online information cannot be fully trusted. No face to face interaction: It’s often possible that we misinterpret what we actually see or read when we do not find somebody to actually explain it out to us… a single punctuation error changes the real meaning of the entire sentence and as it is said half and the improper information is even more harmful than no information. Hence, face to face interaction is very important for proper learning. No regularity or discipline: As the students are free from the regulations and boundaries of a proper classroom environment, it is quite obvious that the curriculum will not be maintained the way it should be. They might not study the materials in a routine manner and may start taking things lightly. No time commitment: Since there is no one to inspect them studying they might just not complete their work and leave it unfinished further harming their own selves in the long run. Higher dropout rate: Students are more likely to drop out as they are not giving their full commitment to their studies and taking their studies too lightly… Despite all the minus points, this also is a boon to the society Flexibility : The main advantage of online education is its flexibility. a student can adjust his study timings as per his own needs. One can study indoor or outdoor, in a room or while traveling in a metro. It also saves time, energy or money of traveling to a specific destination to attain knowledge. Cost – efficient: Online education not only saves time and energy but also money. Education has mostly become a business in educational institutions these days.. be it coaching, schools or colleges, everyone is just trying to extract more and more money in the name of donations etc. online education saves the students from falling prey to such fraudulent practices. All one needs to do is have an internet connection in their system. Wider choice of courses and subjects: In online education, one is free to choose his own combination of subjects regardless of the percentage required for taking up that particular subject. One can even take up odd combinations such as science with psychology or commerce with mass communication fearless of the fact that someone might judge them for their choices. No language barriers : Since online education is available in most of the vernacular languages, there are no language barriers .one is free to learn new things in their own mother tongue as well.. they are not bound to understand a particular language in order to follow the text… they can read the text or see a video related to it in whichever language they please, this gives them self-pride and confidence in themselves. Underused data: If a student does not has the time to take down notes while studying online, he can always save the page or convert it into a document and download it.. unlike in traditional classrooms where the matter gets erased from the board once the teacher is finished teaching… one can always refer to what he or she has studied previously online by simply clicking on the history of the site.  It totally depends on one's personal opinion as to what is more convenient for him/her- the old traditional teaching or the new online education.  

Importance of skilling and schooling in career bui...

The debate on schooling vs skilling is becoming increasingly relevant in India due to the rate of unskilled, unemployed youth. Only 2.3 percent of the country's present workforce has undergone formal skill training. Our country is running in sharp contrast to countries like Japan and South Korea where over 80 per cent of the workforce has been trained in an employable skill. Due to the lack of skill inculcation in India, only a small fraction of graduates find steady, productive jobs. This has led to a major chunk of India's youth being segregated into 3 major categories: Uneducated Unemployed Unemployable Research suggests that around one million people enter the Indian job market each year. However, due to the lack of training, they remain jobless, contributing almost nothing to the economy. As around 117 million people wait to be absorbed into new, skill-based jobs, the need for skilling becomes harrowingly real. Inculcating vocational skills in students can start right from the schooling level. But, it cannot possibly replace schooling. Here’s a balanced unbiased discussion. Schooling: a child’s first step to the real world A child is barely 4-5 years old when he /she starts his/her schooling. This is the first time he/she gets introduced to the real world outside the home. Children get exposed to diversity in terms of multiple cultures and religions. By interacting with their teachers and fellow students, children develop communication and interpersonal skills. They acquire indispensable personality traits such as ethics, tolerance, and empathy. Once they communicate with other students, they learn how to understand and accept differing viewpoints. While these are very basic skills, teaching them in a structured manner at school helps students retain and repeat them in a practical setting. The foundation stones of learning, including reading and writing, are also taught at this early stage. Evidently, schooling is essential for students as this is where they begin to build their individual personalities. Importance of skilling in the current market Currently, there is a huge disconnect between the demand and supply of skilled manpower in India. While there are millions of workers willing to fill positions, they simply lack the skills to do so. By focusing on skill-building in fields like IT, communication, healthcare, automotive, retail and hospitality, institutions can start preparing students for jobs right from the outset of their middle school or high school education. Learning such skills at an early age promotes innovative thinking among students, making them more productive and contributive towards various industries in India. Through vocational, outcome-based learning, schools can impart confidence and competency in students. Clearly, there are multiple benefits of skilling, apart from the direct boost to the economy. Skill trained children grow up to become employable, confident and talented individuals. SKILLING WITHIN SCHOOLING: WHY SKILLING AND SCHOOLING SHOULD WORK SIMULTANEOUSLY? All firms in India are in search of employees who are specialists in technical skills, soft skills, and life skills. Employers prefer candidates who are competent at their work while also being refined, smart individuals. The basic principles of life, such as kindness, empathy, and bonhomie, are as important as management and technical skills. While skilling will prepare students for jobs, schooling will prepare them for life. So, it is conducive to the all-round development of students to offer training in both hard and soft skills A confident and competent workforce that drives the economy, can only be achieved by providing skilling and schooling together. If both requirements are met, there will soon be a time in India, when no one could be attached to the uneducated or the unemployable tag.

10 Easy tips: How to pick the right career after 1...

The Indian education system is very intimidating and everyone is in a rat race to become one whom they admire, follow or dream of. Choosing a course to study after class 12 is an important stage of student life. After all, the stressing out for marks and the toil a student undergoes to score in board exams, the fruit of it would be earned only if he or she chooses the right career path. But how to do it, becomes the big question around.

You can be in the Science stream, Commerce or in Humanities but there must be that one subject which you study by heart and find that one subject and pick it up. You can really encounter many obstacles in choosing the subjects from your parents or peer front which will be very confusing but don’t worry and don’t get carried away from any allegations. Once you decide the subject, research on the opportunities or careers available to that subject. These days every subject has its own area and opportunities to look upon. What is needed is thorough research and right guideline. Understanding of the course: Before you decide which course to pursue, it is also important to understand what a course entails and what all does it cover? Simply put, you must thoroughly understand what lies in the store for you once you join the course. This means understanding what subjects will be covered, what will you learn, what kind of teaching pedagogy is followed in a particular graduation course. There are many ways to gather important information about the graduation course you are planning to take up. The most convenient and obvious would be to talk to your seniors, siblings or parents. People who are working in the fields that are similar to your interest will be able to guide you the best. Alternatively, you can also find relevant information on the internet or consult a career counselor. Future Prospects: Another major factor to consider upon deciding a college course is its future prospects. Especially, if you are considering going for some new or off-beat courses, it is essential to understand the job and further study prospects that it holds. Going for a course that matches your interests is great but you should also be mindful of the future prospects that it offers.  One of the major questions that you should try to answer is, 'What are the career opportunities available after the course?' Also, look for; what prospects are available for higher studies in the field. Create a list: Make a list of things you like and dislike. Example- which subjects you like the most, are you interested in drawing/arts, are you adventurous, are you interested in computers and programming etc. On the basis of your likes and dislikes select the careers that suit you. Analyze each of the selected careers: After making a list of the careers of your choice, you should analyze each of the selected careers. Consider facts like minimum qualifications, potential dangers, and hazards, starting salaries and opportunities to progress in that particular field. Income: Another important aspect which you should consider while choosing a career after 12th is income as everybody chooses a career to earn money but that does not mean that every person becomes a doctor or engineer and not a teacher. Here, you have to find out which profession will give you the money you desire for. If you really want to work for your self-satisfaction then the doors towards different career aspects are always open for you. Know what you don’t want to pursue: It is very important to know what to pursue but more than that one should very well know what not to pursue. Sometimes, the best choices in life are the ones you don’t make. Use the process of elimination to ensure that you weed out all the possible careers that you are not suited for. Take the assistance of a career counselor: One of the very important part while choosing a career is to consult a career counselor. Career counselors are highly trained professionals, and they will help you complete a series of personality evaluation and aptitude tests so that you can make an informed choice.

These courses give an idea to the students what the subject will cover. Engage a mentor: And the most important thing which the students can consider is engaging a mentor who is willing to share skills, knowledge, and expertise, demonstrates a positive attitude and acts as a positive role model and exhibits enthusiasm in the field. He will be the right person to provide guidance and constructive feedback to you Conclusion Choosing the right career is completely in your hand. Think of the different aspects of a particular career and then choose your path, whatever time it takes because as they say “ it's better late than never.”
