Career Counselling – An Essential Element to Improve Global Enrolment Ratio: Careerguide’s Career Counselling Report 2017
CareerGuide.com has recently launched their report on career counselling in order to emphasise the concept and create an awareness towards positive impact that career counselling can bring. Around the world, one of the most important topics of concern has long been education and even after efforts from several educationists, educational organisations and country governments, we have yet not achieved our targets. In fact, we have made the education system so complicated that new challenges have taken space such as mental anxiety, stress, depression and financial problems for receiving the quality education. At this time, it is important to understand what the education system is lacking and what the gaps are. As has been studied over, career counselling is an answer to the gap that has become so wide. Career counselling which is mostly considered to be taken in addition to education is required to be honoured as an essential element of school curriculum which may continue till later stages in the life of an individual.
Career counselling initially started as a support service in job finding, however, with time, it evolved and now it is considered as an essential element of the academic curriculum where a student can be guided for his talents, skills and strengths through which he/she can select an appropriate and fulfilling career. Currently, different career counselling techniques have been in use by the experts which are based on scientific theories. Some of the basic theories that provided a strong foundation for the career development process are Maslow’s needs theory, John Holland’s Vocational Choice Theory, Learning Theory of John Krumboltz, Career Development theory of Donald E. Super, transition theory by Nancy Schlossberg etc. Although the importance of career counselling cannot be denied, yet there are several challenges associated with the process. In the UK, which is considered to be highly advanced in terms of career services, 70% of students under 14 said in a survey that they have never taken any career-advice while 45% of students above 14 said that they had received limited advice.
Considering the critical importance of the awareness regarding career counselling, CareerGuide.com has developed this report in association with Craft Driven Market Research. The report includes a thorough research on the present situation of career counselling in different countries and what we in India can learn from the nations that have widely adopted the platform of career counselling. In addition, the report also addresses the social challenges that we can solve through appropriate career counselling to the students. There is a section that identifies the mental health care of the students and professionals across the country. It has been reported that of all the people having psychological problems, 25% have their reasons due to dissatisfaction with their career and jobs. Most of these people are under 30 of the age and this makes it highly important to highlight the importance of career counselling.

Surabhi Dewra, CEO of CareerGuide.com visions her efforts by saying that- “Career counselling is not just an element of education, but it’s an essential element of a person’s lifestyle. It is as important as one considers taking the best opportunities in education and jobs. One needs to identify his/her potential and accordingly get the best opportunity. Career counselling is a scientific process and should be dealt with likewise by people involved in the education sector”. Further, Aakanksha Aggarwal from Craft Driven quotes that “There is very less research that is currently available on career counselling. A large number of people don’t understand that receiving career counselling from an expert is as important as taking the right education from an experienced teacher. Even when career counselling is privately available in India since 1980s, we have yet not made much progress on providing access to all the students and professionals. This report is an attempt to create an awareness towards the need of Career counselling.”
