Career after school and providing a lot of career options from which they can choose one, of their own interest.

What is your career?  Forget about how you define this to others for now, and just think for a bit about how you define your career to yourself. What does it mean to you to have a career? Is it just your job? Is it something you do to make a living? Is it what you do for money? 


Your career is the jouey you take to reach your goals throughout your life including the progress and

actions taken by a person throughout his lifetime. It is a lifelong process and defines where you will

stand in your life. Wait a minute.... What are your goals in your life??  Are you still thinking, then believe me, you haven't achieve your goals yet and there is a long way to go and you are unaware of what you are.... 

“You must remember that just completing any course does not guarantee a job, lifelong satisfaction,

which comes only from within One must look for different components that can add values to one’s profile.

Besides, there are certain careers which are preferred over the others, as they are deemed to be more

lucrative / respected / successful. As a result, many students sit for entrance exams under immense

pressure. Other courses have high cut offs where students who are equally bright but  have scored

moderate marks get left behind. 

Thus, their course choice leaves them struggling to barely manage the course which they have joined.

Those who manage to pass the graduate course are again at crossroads as when they join the work force

they are dissatisfied and unhappy. All this arises because the students do not do any career planning

and choose institutes giving little weightage to the course or choose a course giving a little weightage to

their own strengths and capabilities.

                       This is exactly Tawi Career Mentors is determined to help the students so that they make right choices. The

surest and shortest way to do this is by empowering each and every student by helping them discover

their inherent talent, their unique aptitude combination, and thereby guiding them on to the right

career path and helping them make the RIGHT career choice.

Choosing a career is a big deal, it is an involved process that is based on a number of things, including

your interests, skills, work-related values, and personality.

Here is what an individual says about his career dilemma........ I personally went to college to be a high

school teacher. I realized after a year and 1/2 that I hated it. I worked in a restaurant for a year, then

taught tuitions for 2-3 months, then when I was 25 I stumbled into a marketing position and have been

in marketing ever since (for 7 years). I wish I'd gotten a degree in marketing.

I am sure you would have come across instances like the one above; unfortunately we come to realize

the mistakes we have made only in the later stages in life when situations cannot be changed or

reversed.  These kinds of mistakes when making a career choice can be avoided by simply follow ing the two steps listed below.

Exploration:     The most important factor in choosing the right career is exploration, the more we explore

and understand ourselves and our likes and dislikes, the more likely we will be able to find a fulfilling

career. Unfortunately, many put no more thought into choosing a career than they do in buying a new

pair of Shoes Unfortunately  you can’t get a refund on 4 or 5 years of education if you decide you don’t 

like it.

Exploration are of different types but the one I am referring to is “Exploration of oneself”, you need to

find out everything that you can about your needs, desires, wants, aptitudes, talent and person al

preferences. Once you have a solid grasp on this then you begin exploring ways in which you can put this

special combination of attributes to beneficial use for yourself.

Exploration of yourself should involve discussion with friends, analysis of your background and

experiences you have had both professionally and personally; tests and quizzes that will help you better

understand yourself; leaning to trust your feelings and instinct

Having explored yourself and optimized your resources don’t wait "Get out there and do something",

once you’ve found out more  and then you need to get yourself someexperience.
