CAREER AWARENESS DIALOGUE
Career Awareness Dialogue is a campaign aimed at educating young minds on career as a concept and sensitizing them on its selection aiding in the growth and development of their mental capacity.
Career choice is one of the most important decisions every person has to make whether that decision is to select a specialization, organization or a profession, it should be made after careful consideration of the internal (including physical, emotional and intellectual demands) and external environment (which might include one’s suitability to the type of work).
A good number of teens complain about their school subject or career paths which are influenced through the decision or pressure from parents, guardian or extended families.
This choice is crucial as it shall drive what will be the individual’s daily schedule for the rest of their life. Furthermore, it will have a direct impact on their other aspects of life such as life style, self-satisfaction, work-life balance and quality of life.
The career choice decision is also difficult not just because of the range of career options available to an individual in the current environment, but having an adequate understanding of a career without getting into it. Too often, only after a person has made sustainable commitments in time, energy, and money or has cut off other opportunities by taking steps to enter a career, does he or she find that it is not what was expected or wanted. It is therefore important for each and every child and adult to have a thorough education and knowledge on career as a concept before venturing into its processes.
