How to Make Appropriate Career Choices?
Well! It is extremely difficult for the youngsters to make the career choices in today’s world. Perhaps, this is because of the fact that there is plethora of career choices available and we can’t make appropriate choices as we are confused amidst lot many different choices. However, the availability of the choices is not the only reason because the main reason for this kind of confusion is that the people are not aware of their innate potential.
Yes, because of the fact that we cannot recognize our in-built talent and capabilities, we are not able to make a right career choice. However, a step-by-step basic research could help us make the most adequate career choice in which could easily excel.
1. First and foremost thing is the introspection. Yes, we should give our quality-time to ourselves thus, arriving at a state wherein we could recognize our abilities and our innate talent. Thus, in this way we can find a ray of light amidst the darkness of our lives as we are able to recognize our real talent which would not only provide us with success in our lives but also satisfaction.
2. The second most important thing includes the act of gaining knowledge and enhancing the awareness. This can be done by various methods like, using the internet to search about the career opportunities available. Apart from the use of internet, people can also opt to participate in the career counseling sessions wherein they can get to know about the variety of options available.
3. The third thing is to research about the educational or vocational institution wherein the person could get a training to excel in the desired career. The individual must work upon getting all the requisite details like, standard and ranking of the institution, faculty members, academic facilities, accommodation facilities and many other required details.
Well! While making the choices, one should make it clear that there is no pressure involved and the person should be genuinely interested. Basically, it is not essential to be a doctor, engineer or academician for the reputation in society if the person has interest, one could also opt for off-beat careers in field of journalism, photography, dancing, singing and other fields of interest.
The most important aspect of the life should include the ability to make a perfect career choice. People on a job tend to work daily but many of them show a considerable lack of interest and are often not satisfied and happy with their work despite they are earning well. It is notable that we have our own life thus; we are entitled to take all the decisions. In case we opt for a career which is not meant of us, we tend to live a miserable life with considerable unhappiness while if we love career choice and are fascinated to work; we not only lead a successful life but set up an inspirational and productive example for the society. Most importantly, we don’t regret later in our life for the road not taken…
Humans have spent several millennia to acquire the ability to speak. The community has a non-negotiable right to its language. In spite of this, the information related to language data is kept away from the public. The language data of the 2011 has not been provided to the citizens.
From 1971 onwards, the Census has decided, to disclose names only of those languages which had more than 10,000 speakers. As a result, only 108 languages were disclosed, as against the 1,652 a decade ago.
Not knowing language data might have ill effects on the life of the citizens, if one belongs to the communities that are linguistically minority communities. When a community realises that its language has no future, it prepares for a language migration, leading to the demise of that language. The People’s Linguistic Survey of India shows that between 1961 and 2011, more than 250 Indian languages disappeared.
If out of the 800-odd languages which exist, 600 or 700 disappeared, it would mean heavy losses for the society:
- Out cities are already burdened of excess population and lack of a proportionate infrastructure. This could be resolved with linking livelihood opportunity with the language of the region.
- Imparting education to children through their native language is scientifically considered to aid full development of their faculties.
Trashing the languages of the minorities would be the violation of the UNESCO charter and deny citizens their linguistic citizenship.
When a state tries to suppress a culture, some unexpected events upset the equilibrium like the one for Gorkhaland in West Bengal.
THINGS ONLY A COMMERCE STUDENT WILL UNDERSTAND
PAIN OF DRAWING THE LEDGERS AND BALANCE SHEET WHICH NEVER BALANCES
One of the most painful thing is when the commerce students make big accounts and waste our whole time and at the end we understand that the “ASSETS ARE NOT EQUAL TO THE LIABILITIES”. This challenge is often faced by every commerce student.
BORROWING A SCALE DURING EXAM
The most annoying thing for a commerce student is not having a scale during exam time and the reactions that teachers give them are like “COMMERCE STUDENT HOTE HUE SCALE BHOOL GYE” “SHAME ON YOU”!! Borrowing scale from friends to draw the lines in accounts just to earn even one mark is one of the favourite hobby of a commerce student!!
HIGH CUT OFF’s AND COMPETITION
You’ve heard of these things often “YAAR DU MAI ADMISSION KAISE MILEGA”, “ITNI HIGH CUT OFF’s KYUN HOTI HAI?” And things what parents says are sometimes full of humour “SHARMA JI KE BETE KA ADMISSION HOGAYA SRCC MAI TUJHE TO KOI PVT COLLEGE BHI NAHI MILEGA”
CALCULATOR AND SCALE ARE THEIR FOREVER BEST FRIENDS
It’s our birth right to have a calculator and scale with ourselves. The saddest truth is our whole life will end while calculating our assets and liabilities. Not taking bath is not a big problem but forgetting scale and calculator is one of the biggest crime for a commerce student!!
CONFUSED EVERY TIME
We come across many commerce students who have no idea of why and what they are doing. Their entire life goes in thinking about what they are upto and what will they do with themselves.
AND WHEN DESI AUNTIES ADD ON THEIR COMMENTS
“BETA 12 KE BAD FIR CA HI KAROGE? “ACHAA TU TO PAPA KA BUSINESS HI SAMBHALEGA!”
