Well-versed with the fact that students suffer from utter confusion of choosing from the myriad fields available today, Delhi Public School, R.K. Puram organized a very unique and exciting career counseling session for the students of Class 10 on 17th February, 2011. The parents of the students of the school who belonged to various professions came over to share first-hand, on-the-job experience with the young generation and to bust the myths attached with the career options. The fields they belonged to ranged from medicine, investment banking and hotel management to mass communication, architecture and the defense services. As experienced professionals, they talked about the entrance exams, job-satisfaction, remuneration, work environment and challenges pertaining to their respective fields of work. They also answered the eager queries of the students and guided them towards their future choices.
All of them emphasized deeply on the need for extreme passion to pursue the chosen path. Moreover, what was common to all the careers was the need for a great deal of dedication and hard work. The professionals also clarified that studying abroad is not as easy as it seems and explained why Indian universities were equally competent. Aware of the contemporary ‘pay-package-oriented’ aspirations, they established that if you toil to be the best in your field, money is bound to follow.
In all, it was an enriching experience for the students.
