Why Career Counseling is Important for Students?

Formal education opens up your mind to endless opportunities and helps your way in a particular direction.  Unfortunately, we still pay huge attention to degrees but a wave of change is updating people’s perspective.

That is why many short courses institutes are suddenly emerging as a more reliable alternative to formal education in schools and colleges. The reason is that generally, our educational organizations focus more on theory than practical knowledge.

IPS Unit of Education is such a modern language institute where we believe more in passion and skills. In this digital era, specifically, students need training and an environment that prepares them for the future and competitive world.

Our Instructors give them a taste of what it’s like to actually work in the corporate industry.  Today's industry requires people to update their skills more often than ever. Hence, if you are not quite ready for a subject and just learn for the sake of it or just because it is popular, you’re doing harm to yourself.

The subject that matters most to you can keep you hooked with it, and you can excel in that particular field exponentially. Therefore, every student needs career counseling right after matric or inter to choose a better field for him.

What is Career Counselling?

Career counseling refers to a process that helps us know our interests and personality for an informed decision towards career and education choices.

Even if we are working at some job, we may still need career counseling.  Short courses institute especially pay attention to this factor and recommend students courses that match their intellect.

For Instance, when a student comes to us with a computer education background, we interview them, know their interests, and recommend him doing web development short courses or graphic designing courses, which ultimately help him in his career and education.

Why Career Counselling is Important?

It gives us a chance to improve ourselves and make better choices. The following are some of the reasons.

You can choose the Right Career for You

Career counselors are experts at judging your aptitude and interests. They can suggest better career options that are relevant to your interests just as we do at our short courses institute.

You can Access Right Resources

As a student, you might know the dynamics of a specific industry. With career counseling, you get access to advanced resources and the scope of any particular subject.

You can Gain Insight into Your Personality

You can understand the possible hurdles in your path and can understand what it takes to be successful in a particular field. This knowledge will help you gain confidence and you can decide on where you want to go from a certain point.

You Can Narrow Down Your Options

Frustration and confusion are common throughout the educational phase. With career counseling, you can narrow down the list of your options with all the pros and cons and remove options that might not be useful for you.

In Pakistan, career counseling is still not recognized enough as other developed countries. However, with information access at your disposal, for instance about popular short courses, your investment in terms of time and effort can be subsidized.



I have been associated with the field of education for more than ten years. The ups and downs of the Pakistani learning environment make me write about it to create awareness and initiate improvement in our education system.
