Aage ka kya socha hai?

“Where are you going for further education?”

“Oh, will it be safe since the cases have increased Na?” are all the questions constantly being shoved upon the students who dream to study abroad.

2020 to an extent has disrupted long term plans of people from all spheres and across the borders and so has the career plans for us students. But then uncertainties are new normal and not reason enough to give up all our dreams. Here is a check list a bird gave me which you might find useful.

Destination

  

Did you know that location of your college has significant impact on your placement opportunities Then of course there are colleges and countries that rate higher for different discipline and course. Now that is a lot of research guys – yes that is what the bird told me to tell you. And in the pandemic situation and aftermath, these decisions will be even more 


Unconventional careers

The bird also said “Do what you are good at and you will succeed”. Well what I think the bird meant is not stick to conventional study streams and careers – the new world demands new skills and new attitudes. Yes guys – the new employers are looking for people skilled at their work – no matter what it is and be adaptive. The new buzzwords are continuous education, online learning and gig workers engaged on project basis. So unless one has loves one’s work and reinvent oneself – one might not survive long. Kapoor saab sorry – no disrespect – but Bob Dylan says “For the times they are a changin”! 





Counselling with an expert

Yes! One might not have felt the need for a counselor in the past. But the disruption and uncertainties triggered by pandemic – has changed all that. There is every possibility of large information gap between what actually is happening and what one knows. Unfortunately the bird is too busy – to help each and every one of us with our questions and challenges. But she said “Choose a good study abroad counselor”. Makes sense right. A counselor who is in constant touch with the universities and colleges abroad is one person to depend on for most reliable information and application strategy.

I think it would be very unfair to not introduce you to me little bird. Say Hi!

To test, or not to test, that is the question

I open my eyes from a dizzy sleep and see rows of benches till where my vision could take me. This place is familiar to me, I have studied here but why am I alone? The benches start to shake and scream deafening my ears, books from the desk start flipping its pages at a mechanical speed. I tread near to have a glance, “ENTRANCE EXAMS!”, it says. I jolt up so fast that my head feels light and the room spins. My forehead is covered in sweat as the realization hits, it was all a dream! 

But the reality wasn’t any better, I had to give my entrance exam anytime soon. My friends had already given them and were way ahead of me in the application process. I didn’t know where to start or how to prepare, the only voices I could hear in my head were “FAILURE”, “STRESS” and “WHAT IF”. And it is not just the entrance exam – there is self doubt that comes along, the anxiety of not matching up to the standards of our peers, siblings – are all nightmare.

But then I came to my senses – I had to take action. I started my research, to find out more. After spending hours and days researching I’ve come to understand how these entrances are different from our college examinations. They are more practical and require application than memory. You’ll constantly discover yourself cracking your brain most of the time – and in some sense it is exciting?? Sometimes, you might even end up questioning yourself on how you made it till here.

 

Major chunk of our results depend on the strategies we adapt and the direction we traverse in. As students, anxiety becomes a part of our life, but our attitude towards dealing with the same is what makes us different and produces results. Hence, I decided to have a no-pressure plan, which meant planning out everything from A to Z till the day of my entrance exam. We often underestimate the power of time management and to-do-list. We procrastinate and give in to distractions – and mistakenly blame it on our lack of ability. So guys – lets create a strategy and get to work.

Another feature of my plan included annotations (yep I never liked doing that either) for we tend to remember what we annotate. So here I am, cannot say I am 100% sorted! Does that even exist? But I'm doing what I must do - not buckling under stress - since I have a well designed strategy in place. I know how important it is for everyone of us students, to get that dream score for that dream university. The fact is, if you’ve reached till here - you care! So buckle up and get started.

Zeteophobia

Zeteophobia

NOUN /:       

Anxiety associated with career decision

How many of us are truly equipped with enough life experience, self-knowledge, and information about suitable careers?

For many adults, there’s a lot of anxiety around career decision making. The indecisiveness is quite normal because we spend 1/3 of our life working. Plus, the workplace is changing at a crazy rate. Thus, if you haven't been getting the appropriate career guidance, you'll most likely be suffering from zeteophobia.  

Here are a few famous movie dialogues that may help us gain perspective:

“Why are you trying so hard to fit in, when you were born to stand out?” What a girl wants (2013)

Career is defined as ‘an occupation undertaken for a significant period of a person's life and with opportunities for progress.’ Then why do we always choose the jobs with the assumption that it will always pay because everyone else’s is?

Are we trying too hard to fit into a career – that is considered good by people around? Are you afraid of choosing something simply because it is unconventional? Is that the right way to choose a career? 

“People are afraid of what they don’t understand.” Man of steel (2013)

“Fear of failure” is one of the major reasons leading to career anxiety. We always tend to stick to our comfort zones. There are numerous career options now - many of which didn't exist 10 years ago.

Change is always scary. But fear is only a waste of time, adding no value. Doing a psychometric test and discovering your abilities and available options – will address these unfounded fears. With a clear mind you will realize, there’s literally nothing we need to panic about.

“All we have to do is decide to do with the time that is given to us” Gandalf in Lord of the rings

“I don’t have time”

“There aren’t enough opportunities for me”

“I am scared it won’t work out”

Are some of the excuses we tend to give to avoid uncertainty, which majorly comes from lack of self-awareness and not knowing what we actually want. We always tend to use shortage of time and our ignorance as an excuse for mediocrity.

 “The only thing standing between you and your goal is the bullshit story you keep telling yourself as to why you can’t achieve it.” The wolf of the wall street (2013)

Most of the time it’s you who keeps yourself within the limits and not others. Career choice can often be confusing and stressful but if you allow yourself to be more open, it all won’t really be a tough choice. 

Seek out a counselor – do your psychometric test and get to learn all about your weaknesses and strengths. You will find your uniqueness – and will confidently move ahead in your career plan.
