If choosing a career is ‘where to go’, then having a career action plan is ‘how to reach’ there.
‘Which career is the one for me?’ If you are asking this question to yourself or your close ones, you are on the verge of taking the first step towards your career. Before taking a decision understand that there are many aspects to consider before choosing the right career. There is more to a career than simply doing a job. It is about you and your choices, dreams, aspirations, ambitions, abilities and interests. You need to choose something that you would love and which would also help you explore and utilize your complete potential.
Also, be practical about what you can or can’t do. Avoid falling prey to peer pressure or societal norms as to what constitutes a good career. Take proper guidance from expert career counselors before taking a decision.
So, let’s know more about what a career is and how to choose the right career options for yourself.
Know yourself: Identify your skills, interests, and personality
The first step to do before choosing the right career or a course is to understand your skills, interests, and personality. There are various factors which affect your choice and plenty of websites available which provide ‘career tests’. Few of them might give you a detailed result on what to choose. Post the result, sit and think if that is actually what you want to do. Remember it is your career hence do not fall for a stereotypical result. It would be better to opt for a one-to-one career counselling session.
You may consult our career counselor today to understand your personality type. As part of our career counselling programs, we at Panipat Institute of Engineering and Technology, Haryana believe in providing students with transparent and complete guidance basis of their academics as well as identifiable skills. This process driven analysis has helped thousands of students find the perfect career in the past decade.
Explore your options and choose the right career
Once you have the assessment report, you would be able to select few courses that would suit your personality and interests. You will also get to learn about the answers to some essential “what, where, when, why, and how” which are related to your career choice. It is pivotal at the initial stage itself to study all the available options, match them with your goals, and seek guidance from experts. This would help you explore your options, choose a course, and have a robust action plan for your future.
Develop a Career Action Plan
Post evaluation and after you have decided your future stream, you need to create a ‘career action plan’. It is a roadmap which helps you achieve your life goals. Once you set the agenda for future, the next and the final step is to chalk out your goals, which could be professional, personal or short and long-term. Thereafter, you need to choose a college which not only makes you academic ready but also industry ready while understanding your capabilities and future trends.
We at PIET have always been at the forefront of introducing new trends into our course curriculum. We are the first college in Panipat to include ‘Enterprise 4.0’ in our curriculum. No other college offering Engineering, Management or Diploma courses in Panipat is providing Enterprise 4.0.
We strive to provide our students with both theoretical knowledge as well as practical exposure to make them industry ready. If you are studying in Engineering or Management at PIET, you would have learning access to the world of Artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, big data and the Internet of Things. This would eventually give you an edge over other students competing to get a job as well as increase your job and industry learning.
