The job market is changing at a pace that formal education is not keeping up with. Technology is a key disruptor. A career path that seems niche now is not relevant just a few months down the road. Aspirational jobs need inspirational thinking. An up to date viewpoint of the changing career scene is an important asset in deciding career paths. A student busy in balancing academics, extracurricular activities and a social life hardly has the time, money, inclination or tools needed to assess the changing landscape of career paths.
Career counseling is one sure way to understand the latest that is in the career space for a student. In the able hands of a well-informed counselor, a student can make a wise and an educated choice about career paths. A career counselor who has a fresh view of the world can help a student map his education, life goals, career goals and lifestyle. In short, career counseling helps a student lost in the wilderness of career choices with a clear, well-lit path to a specific destination.
