Early morning presentation

10:04 PM

Today professor Ghosh from Sikkim visited our school. He presented a presentation on career options after class twelve. Class eleven and twelve were present in the presentation. He informed us about the present job scenario and gave tips on making the right choices in future. He said that our career shouldn't be by chance, it should be by choice and we were to become job creator not job seekers. We learned about Hall’s career stage model. This included exploration stage, establishment stage, maintenance stage and decline stage.
When we get a job, we want respect in the society, money, fame, satisfaction, security, happiness and joy. But when something goes wrong in our decision making it may lead to lack of career success. This can take place when career is not matching with one’s interest/potential/personality.

 Sometimes we select the career which doesn't match our interest, etcetera. The reasons can be from opportunity perceptions, parental influence, peer pressure and others. We should have a systematic approach, we should be clear about our objectives and it should be individualized. This can help in building a successful career.
In the presentation there was a quote from Michelangelo Buonarroti, The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.” which made us to aim higher.

Towards the end of the presentation, professor explained about the factors for choosing universities in India. The factors are reputation, cost, safety, faculty, distance and facilities.
