How to choose the right profession- Part 2

In good old times in India (the vedic era) teacher or guru was the only one to decide what a child will become in future. He was having the right to decide, whether a child will be a Brahmin, kShratriya or Vaish. The gurus used to analyse the natural behaviour and actions of child at very early age of 5-7 years to categorise him as Brahmin, kshatriya or Vaish and he was put into one varna. ( sudra was not a varna and those who remained uneducated due to one reason or another were considered as sudra ) . These varna at that time were professional fields and not the castes. Later when the system become corrupt these varna turned to castes and the profession of the child was then decided by the profession of parents, Unfortunately at that time sudra also become a caste and for generations, people were deprived of education for being born as sudra.

Today with the spread of new education and new thoughts and due to awakening of masses, it is possible for a person to decide his/her profession. But this freedom came to us with a responsibility to choose a right profession. This is a collective responsibility of the students, parents and teachers to find a perfect profession for the student.

Role of Parents and teachers in career selection

Even when the child have to make the final decision select his/her profession, Parents and teachers need to play very important roles in the whole process. The parents are mature and closely acquainted with the student and his/her environment and the teachers are trained professional and aware of the present trends in choice of profession as well as the personality traits of the child. So the teachers and parents can suggest the better options of careers to the child and also help him/her in exploring various professions their lifestyles, merits, demerits and different aspects of those professions. They can help the child to analyse his/her own strengths and weaknesses. They can also help them to know the present opportunities and threats.

While helping the child the teachers and parents should be very careful and in any case they should not impose their own choices on the child. This may affect his/her decision making and things may go wrong.

What is the right time to start the process?

National Career Development guidelines of United States, gives a timeline for the career deciding process. According to this timeline the process of career decision should start in the 5th year of education. The process should start with career awareness. At this level students must know about the need and importance of the career in one’s life and also about some of the available career. During next 2-3 years s/he should know about various careers and the lifestyle of the people in the same. In the 9th and 10th year of education s/he should be guided by parents and teacher to select the right kind of career. In the 11th and 12th year of education s/he should go though some final preparation before actually selecting a career. After that s/he should spent at few years to actually entering the profession.

In my opinion this timeline is more or less applicable in Indian scenario. But the major problem in India is lack of career awareness in parents and even in most of the educators, especially in rural and suburban part of India. Irony about most of the teachers (and not all) of today is that, they never wanted to be a teacher in life, they are in the profession because they could not join any other profession (there are so many reasons behind it but they are beyond the scope of today’s topic). Even the teachers. who are aware of the need of career counselling in education, are not giving much emphasis on this due to one reason or the other. This very fact makes it almost impossible to start this process in a proper manner and at the proper time.

If possible teachers and/or parents should start giving some career awareness to the students at the age of 10-11 years. It will surely help the student in the course of time.

In days to come I’ll try to explain the role of student in career selection and steps to be followed during career selection. Feedback suggestions and questions from the readers are most welcome.
