Student choosing Frozen career choices.

Choosing the wrong career can be a challenging and frustrating experience for a student. It may lead to job dissatisfaction, a lack of motivation, and difficulty in achieving professional goals. However, it's important to remember that making a mistake is a natural part of the learning process.

There are steps that can be taken to address the situation:

One option is to seek guidance from a career counsellor or mentor who can provide insight and support in exploring new career paths. It may also be beneficial to conduct research and gain a better understanding of the career field in question, including job duties, salary expectations, and required qualifications.

It's important for students to remember that choosing a career is a journey, and it's never too late to make a change if they find themselves on the wrong path. By seeking guidance, conducting research, and being open to new opportunities, students can find a career that aligns with their interests and strengths.

According to survey

  • The fact that only 3% engineers are suitable to be employed in the software and product market and only 7% in core roles reflects the acute problem of employability in our country.

  • We found that almost 60% of students were not sure of what technologies to learn and courses to enrol for to enhance their career.

  • The prime reasons for unemployability of students is the lack of clarity about the career options available to them after completion of their degrees.
