If you thought careers are merely about making a living, think again! The work that we do to earn bread for our near and dear ones besides ourselves may eat into our overall happiness if it is not attuned with what we love Choosing a career in line with an area of interests can be not just paying but also rewarding.

Planning career is a long-drawn process that includes choosing an occupation, getting a job and growing in the job before calling it quits finally. In today's day and age, it is no easy task. It is crucial to choose a right career from among so many options available. And even if you know you are cut out to be a fashion designer, you must be in the know of the right way to go about your goal.

What one is looking to achieve may ultimately not happen in case proper planning is not done beforehand. You might end up spending lakhs of rupees and five years at an educational institute, only to discover that you don't like the course you are taking. The price of such a mismatch between the skills required to take on a career and your own may be a lifetime of trouble and hassle.

You can meet with a career counsellor, who will use various self-assessment tools to help you gather information about yourself. Counsellors match your personality to the type of work you should be seeking and come up with important suggestions.

Some questions you could ask yourself include - who you are, your likes, dislikes . , limitations, ambitions, inspiration, etc. Answers to these questions based on the feedback from others can be an effective guide to what you are best suited to do.


Having learned a lot more about yourself, you are ready to start exploring various career options. Experts estimate that there are over 500 different careers in today's work world.
