We often live in a perception that career planning starts after students graduate from school and enters college. But the truth can be far behind this, as we automatically choose our career path when we select the stream after class 10. Each stream is like a gateway to different careers and our chosen life. Hence it becomes even more important to select the right stream that will eventually lead us to the right path and career.
In this blog, we are going to state the top reasons why career planning should start right from stream selection.
1. Stream Determines the Initial Career Base
As we are aware, there are primarily 3 streams: Arts/Humanities, Science, and Commerce. Each stream is like a pathway toward distinct roads, leading to destinations only achievable via that particular stream. So, choosing the stream can be the initial base that can enable you to create the overall structure.
Moreover, we do live in a society where still now students’ intelligence is measured by the stream they select, compelling them to select streams which might not be suitable in the long run. The blunder is made then, limiting the career scope to a fixed set of unsuitable options to choose from.
The dearth of accurate information keeps on fueling wrong stream selection, as most of the time, people are completely oblivious to the fact that fulling career options are also available through Humanities and Commerce streams, not limited to the domain of Science.
In fact, the suitability of a particular career can actually lead to a successful and fulfilling life where students can spend their days doing what they like and can bring positive outcomes. So, it is important to recognize the significance of choosing the right stream that will eventually lead to the student’s perfect career.
2. Be Prepared for the Challenges
If the students get the right guidance early, they can plan their future in a step-by-step manner with backup plans.
Especially, an early selection can give the students the option to plan ahead and also be ready to face challenges and failures better. With stream selection, the student gets to concentrate and work towards the career that will help them flourish in life rather than slogging in a career which will ultimately wreck their prospects of success. Setting small goals are important to feel encouraged and confident about carrying on with your determination to achieve your life’s calling.
3. Make the Right Choice With The Right Information
Do you know? 93% of students are unaware of more than 7 career options!
This means that the information that students know is not enough to guide them toward their perfect careers. Hence often we have seen that a lack of proper information makes students bang on career choices and stream preferences which is not attuned with their overall aptitude. In fact, many a time people are unaware of pursuing the perfect career that can be in sync with their passion.
Sources, like relatives, peers, and other stereotyped information can be misleading and also can confuse the students, beguiling them towards a choice, which might not really be fulfilling in the long run. Hence, in such circumstances knowing the actual options become really important.
With the right guidance from experts, who can help you tap into the possibility that the right career can emit, you can reach the top of the career ladder.
4. Can Plan Out Your Career Step-by-Step
An early start to career planning gives the students an extra edge and better control of their situations. Hence career planning, when done step-by-step at the initial stage itself, paves a better future with wise choices.
A roadmap which begins from stream selection pretty much involves these stages:
- A Stream Assessment
- An in-depth stream report suggesting the right streams
- Counselling sessions that will chalk out the best options
- A holistic start to the perfect Profile Building
- Overall Career planning
- Courses and Universities
This is a basic structure and can enhance further depending on the individual career vision and suitability. But with this start, success is Sureshot!
