"The minute you decide to do what you love to do, you have made a life plan for yourself and a career choice." - Huda Kattan
Choosing the "right career" is of utmost importance in everyone's life. Careers can make or break lives, is well-understood with a decent knowledge of the definition of the word "career" - "an occupation undertaken for a significant period of a person's life and with opportunities for progress", "a person's course or progress through life (or a distinct portion of life)". Sufficient information of the Career options that we have (local & global), along with a proper understanding our natural skills, desires, inclinations & personality is mandatory for us to choose the career that suits us the most, and to set sails to acquire the academic qualifications and soft skills required for that specific Career (from national or international institutions). Though we can change / switch careers in the course of our professional lives, which is a very common aspect of career & career management, it's highly desirable that we start off our careers with the best choice that we have.
Career Guidance has a major role to play in our lives, as we ourselves are least likely to have adequate information about what's happening around the world with respect to career options (opportunity awareness), and our own judgement about the natural capabilities, skills, attitudes, desires, fears and limitations that we ourselves have (self-awareness) may not be accurate. Professional Career Counsellors are well-equipped to help us choose the best career for us.
