Students’ interests and career choices keep changing in this fast-changing world. Many are confused about which career they are inclined towards. Some remain indecisive looking at numerous career options while others do not know of the available career choices.
Students who are at an age where they need to start thinking about their career, do not have clarity on how to choose a suitable career based on their skills and interests. Even those who inherently know of their inclination – and are ready to work on developing a foundation, may not know what exactly needs to be done to prepare themselves for their desired career choice.
Most students and their parents are not career-conscious through their school/college years. Not being aware of students’ learning journeys, interests and career inclinations also adds to the confusion.
Based on the academic records, accomplishments and artifacts of extracurricular activities, it could become easier to find out the interest areas, strengths and weaknesses of a student. Over time, all these artifacts get difficult to trace since they are scattered somewhere in files, photos on a drive, unorganized, and eventually a huge task to stitch them together into a story of accomplishments when they are most needed for college admissions or job opportunities.
Wouldn’t it be great if students could develop career-consciousness at the right age? What if students get introduced to various careers while they are still exploring choices? Can we help them in this transitional phase – from education to career launch? How can data from a student’s learning journey be used to make an informed career choice?
Taking into consideration these important questions, MySphere offers a set of tools, content and services to help students towards career readiness.
