Career Guidance after 10th

In the Indian education system, tenth standard is a real crucial time and a time of firsts for the students. In most cases, it’s the first time that they give a public board examination and the first time that they have to make a decision on what path they would want to take for their future. And when such “unknown” situations come up in a time when most of these students are fighting a surge of adolescent issues as well, makes it a very turbulent time for many.

It is not necessary to reiterate the importance of this “after 10th” time as it is something each parent and student knows clearly. But the question that needs to be asked is whether such an important situation is dealt with the care, thought and attention that it deserves.

How are the career decisions being made? Is it just about following the norm and doing what everyone else does? Or just following a general unthoughtful advice from a near relative or family friend?

Why do we fail to recognise the fact each and every child is unique in their strengths, weakness, abilities and aspirations, and think about how an unwise decision imposed on them now would pull them back from the successful people they are to become?

The lack of access to proper and effective career guidance makes things even worse. An abysmal proportion of 92% don't even get the tiniest form of career related guidance from their schools. And for most of the people, career guidance still remains a process where they get to see some so called “expert individuals” who acts a database from where they get superficial career information like the list of careers that are in “scope” today or the application deadlines for admission into a specific institution. And people are being forced to “satisfy” themselves with whatever mediocre service is available in their vicinity.

What does “Career Guidance in India” need today?

It is quite evident that for a career development mechanism to yield good results for the big question of career guidance after 10th or 12th, it should be a one where structured application of human intelligence is supported by a scientific and objective approach that comes without the baggage of biases and prejudices. And for this mechanism to be able to solve the problems at a pan-India level, it needs to be accessible to everyone and this can only be made by making full use of the advancements in technology and connectivity.

So to sum it up, the answer to the question that we have at hand is an advanced mechanism that is able to become a perfect combination of technology and human intelligence. Now, do we have such a system in India currently? Fortunately, the answer is yes but before we delve into more details, let’s see what all are the factors that need to be considered so that the process of career guidance after 10th can provide effective results.

Career Guidance after 10th : The factors that need to be considered

  • Checked A student’s internal psychometric traits
    Suitability for a particular career or stream can be directly linked to the various psychometric traits like aptitudes, interests, personality and work value preferences of the student.
  • Checked Other intrapersonal influences and sociological factors
    Apart from the psychometric traits, there are some other important factors that need to be considered like the student’s socio economic background, talents in specific fields, past academic performance and achievements.
  • Checked Environmental/Societal factors
    There are many important “outside” factors that can play a major role in shaping up the future workplace. These include governmental policies, employment markets, technological trends etc. While making a future-proof career decision, these factors also need to be considered.
  • Checked Parent’s perspective about the student
    The parent’s aspirations and expectations about their child is another very important factor that needs to be considered.
