    in the subject you do not like.
  • Choosing the subject you like helps you to learn
    quicker and achieve great heights.

6
Your Abilities
  • Abilities are as important as self interests.
  • Though you have an interest in a particular
    subject, you should have the ability to interpret
    it, remember the concepts and apply them
    practically.
  • Consult your parents or teachers who know your
    strengths and weaknesses.

7
Career Growth Opportunities
  • Look at the growth opportunities available in the
    field.
  • Meet job market experts, conduct a self research.
  • Make sure that it is in hot demand and job
    opportunities are available in plenty.

Money is an important factor
  • All students need to recover their educational
    expenses and earn well to live a better life.
  • Research the salary packages for the jobs after
    doing a particular course becomes essential.

9
Career Tests
  • These tests include objective questions having
    multiple choices from all subjects.
  • They test reasoning, creativity, logical
    thinking.
  • Consult Career Counselors, they will ask you your
    preferred career choice and how you need to
    prepare for it

10
Careers after Class XII Career Planning and
Choice of Courses
  • Whether you opt for a career in jobs or prefer to
    be on your own, remember that there is fierce
    competition for getting a space in the world of
    work. Remember the old adage Survival of the
    fittest.
  • In view of new developments primarily triggered
    off by the information technology (IT) and
    globalisation of the economy, there are now more
    options than ever before. You will have to look
    for options. Remember also that these are days of
    specialisation.

11
When should you begin Career Planning?
  • The appropriate age for making a start is 14-15
    years.
  • When you enter class IX under 102 pattern of
    education. This is the formative age to shape
    your career.
  • After 102 level a wide variety of course options
    are available to choose from science, arts and
    humanities and commerce
  • For example If you want to take up engineering
    degree course, you should opt for Physics,
    Chemistry and Maths.

12
Vocational Courses
  • Various vocational courses are available in
    different areas. The most sought after ones of
    course are the polytechnic courses of three-year
    duration leading to diplomas in different
    branches of engineering and technology.
  • The advantage of polytechnic courses is that in
    some branches a diploma holder can make a later
    entry into degree level engineering courses.

13
Issues to be considered before you embark upon
planning your career
  1. Do you need an immediate job because of some
    adverse family circumstances?
  2. Is your family financially sound enough to pay
    for your professional education?

14
Distance learning if you need a job after102
  • There are many options available. You can study
    at your own space and time.
  • Ignou Indira Ghandhi National Open
  • University.
  • There are several other Universities too.

15
Spiraling cost of Professional Education
  • In Professional Colleges there are two categories
    of seats free seats and payment seats.
  • Free seats are highly subsidised. Generally
    free seats are allotted on the basis of merit
    and performance at the entrance tests CET.
  • Scholarships, freeships and other financial
    supports are scarce.
  • Education Bank loans are available with
    conditions.

16
2 steps before you proceed for Career Planning
  • Assess your strengths and weaknesses, likings,
    aptitudes and interests.
  • Gather as much information as possible about the
    various educational opportunities and choose one
    that conforms to your assessment.
  • Both are easily said than done. Therefore it is
    necessary for schools to provide vocational
    guidance and counselling.

17
3 Streams of courses plus 1
  • As stated earlier, at the 102 level you have
    three options
  • The Science Stream
  • The Arts/Humanities Stream
  • The Commerce Stream
  • The Vocational Stream

18
SCIENCE
  • There is a common belief that science is the most
    important subject.
  • There is also a general feeling that the best
    students opt for science.
  • In fact, brilliance and intelligence is not the
    exclusive preserve of science.

19
Courses for Science Students
  1. If you are interested in doing engineering
    courses, such as civil, mechanical, electronics,
    metallurgy, computers, the option should be for a
    combination of mathematics, physics and chemistry
    (MPC)

20
  • B. If you wish to take up medicine, dentistry,
    agricultural Sciences, dairy science or
    biological sciences (biochemistry. Biotechnology)
    the combination should be biology, physics and
    chemistry (BPC)

21
  • C. The advantage of choosing science stream is
    that you can shift to the other two streams viz.
    humanities and commerce.
  • It can also be the gateway to a large number of
    career and course options.
  • In the South, subjects such as microbiology and
    computer science can be chosen at the BSc level.

22
  • D. You can also choose degree courses in several
    emerging professional areas, such as
    physiotherapy, occupational therapy, nursing,
    computer, business administration, hotel
    management,, tourism management.

23
  • E. You can also opt for courses outside the
    university stream, such as hotel management,
    fashion technology, industrial design, packaging,
    aircraft maintenance engineering, government
    accredited computer courses and a host of
    vocational courses.
  • If you are very clear that science is not your
    cup of tea, there is no point in wasting two
    precious years simply because it keeps many
    options open.

24
ARTS/HUMANITIES
  • This stream also offers many options other than
    the usual B.A. Course. You can take up education,
    law, travel and tourism, advertising, journalism,
    performing arts, business management, so on and
    so forth.

25

    variety of options. Some examples are company
    secretary-ship, chartered accountancy, cost
    accountancy, business management, computer.
  • B. Com degree with Computer as one of the
    combinations is now a much sought after course.

    PATH OF SUCCESS.

    discernment
