6 Tips for planning your career.
  • Make a list of your interests and values.
  • Make a list of your aptitudes and skills. (What you think you are good at)
  • Read the employment section of the newspaper from A to Z. (make a note of the jobs that interest you)
  • Research careers based on the above
  • Talk to people already in careers that interest you.
  • Gather as much info as possible on the relevant professional courses – the institutions and the
    duration and the costs involved.

    Further study :
    If you’re considering further study there’s lots to be thinking about. Today the higher education system
    in India offers a much greater range of choices than you had at school.

    Which course?
    It is important to understand the kinds of courses available and consider those best suited to your
    needs.Your answers to the following questions may provide a starting point:

    • How much study do I want to do?
    • What level of academic study am I comfortable with?
    • How far am I prepared to travel for the course that I want?
    • Where will I study?

    Once you have a fair idea of the kind of training or education you want, the next step is to consider
    where you will get it. There are two main options in the undergraduate system in India: universities and
    private colleges. Each has different strengths and emphasis.


    Universities offer a wide range of courses in different disciplines. The courses tend to have a scholarly
    approach.the basic unit of the university is the Bachelors degree followed by the masters degree.
    You may start as an undergraduate student and the degree will normally take three to five years to
    complete. Courses vary from the more generalist degrees such as BA, B.Sc., and BCom to more
    specific degrees like BE Barch, MBBS, BBA, BCA, BLib, BA LLB or BHM.

    There has been a tremendous growth in the number of private institutions over the past few 
    years any of them offer courses with built – in training in areas such as hospitality, fashion, 
    business and computers. You may have to pay through your nose for several areas which are just 
    not covered by the university.
