Career Counselling – Dr Attaulwadood – Daily Notable
By Dr Attaulwadood
Career guidance is associated with other forms of counseling (e.g. marriage or clinical counseling). What combines all kinds of professional advice is the role of professionals who combine advice on their subject with advisory techniques that help clients make complex decisions and face difficult situations.
Career guidance focuses on how people interact with their path through life, learning, and work. These include professional research, career selection, career change management, career development and management of other employment-related issues.
There is no agreed definition of professional guidance at the global level, mainly due to conceptual, cultural and linguistic differences. However, the term “professional guidance” generally refer to one, one or a small group of professional interventions.
There is also a significant difference in the terms used globally to describe this activity. In addition to the linguistic difference between American English (Council) and British English (Council), there are also a number of widely used alternative terms. These are advice on vocational training; personal career advice and a number of relevant terms.
This often brings together writers and commentators with different terms, such as professional guidance and counseling. However, caution is recommended when moving from one term to another, as each term has its own history and cultural significance.
The important alternative term is “professional guidance”. This term is sometimes used as a synonym for career guidance, but can also be used to describe a wide range of interventions that go beyond individual guidance.
History and new techniques
Professional orientation has a long history dating back to at least the late 19th century. Frank Parson’s Career Choice, published in 1909, was an important work for the estate. Parson was deeply rooted in the progressive American social reform movement, but as the field evolved, he moved away from this source and was increasingly understood as a branch of consulting psychology.
While until the 1970s, the highly theoretical approach to theories (e.g. from Donald E. Super’s approach to the practice of career guidance (such as the concept of conformity) marked, the new models have a starting point for removable customer needs and capabilities with subjective biographical breaks and stop.
Professional development is no longer seen as a linear process that reflects a predictable world of work. More attention is now paid to nonlinear, episodic and unexpected effects.
This change in perspective is clearly visible in structural models and in constructive social models for professional guidance. Building social models are used as narrative professional guidance emphasizing personal stories and the importance that individuals generate in terms of their education and work.
Postmodern career guidance is a thought process that helps clients create themselves by writing. And examining autobiographical histories that occur in the context of multiple choices made of a variety of options and limitations.
Go from highlighting career choice to improving self-affirmation and improving the decision-making process. More recently, this approach has become widespread in Australia, such as the Athlete Career and Education (ACE) of the Australian Sports and Range of Artists at Ausdance.
Although professional guidance is native to the United States and the English-speaking world, it is now a global activity, to some extent in all countries.
Experimental research shows the effectiveness of career guidance. Career guidance consultants can help people with professional challenges. Their experience in professional development. And labor markets allows them to develop skills, experience, strengths, weaknesses in perspective, desired wages, hobbies, personal interests, status, market educational opportunities.
With their consulting and teaching skills, professional counselors can also help people better understand. What’s really important to them, and how they can plan their careers on their own. Make difficult decisions and endure times of crisis. Finally, professional consultants can often help clients to find appropriate trainings or jobs, resolve disputes with their employers, or find support for other helpful services.
Because of these different benefits of career guidance, decision-makers in many countries fund general counseling services. For example, the EU sees career guidance as an effective tool to combat social exclusion and improve the employability of citizens.
Career Guidance Centers
There are many work centers and mentoring around the world. They provide advice on higher education, opportunities, and types of courses and institutes. There are many service providers around the world who consult with people online about their careers or perform a psychological test to measure a person’s suitability and interests.
Students often find themselves at a crossroads when they reach chapter 12. The question is, “What is it now?” they don’t have a definitive answer. They consult with their parents, classmates or teachers, who, due to their limited knowledge of the many professional opportunities available today, are virtually ineligible to accompany them.
In such cases, the student will benefit greatly from the advice of a qualified and experienced professional advisor who takes a holistic approach in making a proper professional choice.

Why is career guidance important?
Choosing an appropriate career option affects the student’s resume. Making informed decisions at the right time can bring great opportunities rather than harm, which can destroy a student’s future because these decisions are often irreversible. In such a case, the career advisor approach would be a step in the right direction.
As the number and variety of opportunities available in the market increases, career guidance becomes increasingly important. People realize that no one can become an engineer or doctor, and now they are starting to explore other areas based on their talents and interests in other areas.
The benefits of career guidance
Professional guidance helps determine the true potential of the student. Students are often confused about their work preferences. Fitness tests and counseling sessions can help determine student’s area. This will help the students take the right path to achieve the goal of their careers.
Second, despite a clear idea of their professional choice, students do not have the knowledge to plan a postgraduate course in private education to meet the importance of their chosen field of expertise.
In such a scenario, professional guidance can help eliminate these doubts by giving them clarity and knowledge about what to expect from different educational programs. Sometimes students have well-organized ideas about specific areas. Advice will help raise awareness by putting things into perspective.
Potential To Change Life
Students often tend to have the potential for change and chain of events that lead to their final admission to higher education. During these times, the adviser’s primary support, during the admissions process, can give a moral boost to their morality.
And give them the confidence to face every opportunity. Caregivers play an important role in determining the student’s level of motivation, which is essential for long-term success. Career guidance also teaches students how to expand their network and increase emotional support during their studies.

Vocational orientation is therefore as important as training. Its lack of education to generate income from the knowledge gained over almost two decades of learning in several institutes is also a great deal of waste. In addition, these institutes focus primarily on the essay writing service, which allows students to evaluate their learning and understanding.
Professional guides help you find the right career path. All students or former students must be notified. It is extremely important to seek advice in the first stage to make the best professional decisions consciously.
Students in Pakistan tend to experience a variety of professional problems. This is mainly due to the lack of professional advisors at various institutes and universities. Students in Pakistan tend to make decisions based on what their peers and elders recommend. Which confuses them, and are in a dilemma where they can no longer think of themselves.
This results in students choosing the wrong career path. And not inspired and motivated by their work or principal work, and have difficulties and complications in understanding the area they have for themselves. Choosing what not only discourages them, but also extinguishes fire.
Although there has been a significant change in employment in recent years, the young man still cannot access the right knowledge and is still in the fog of play that leads the student on a poor career path that continues on the path of demotivation. As a result, they cannot give their best in their selective field.
These are the current rates of students from different student areas in Pakistan. 60% of students did not pass the arts. Only 39.73% of regular students passed the exam. And the successful percentage of career students was 43.69% in 2016. “It’s sad to see that in the last six years, not even 50% of all commercial students have successful.” said the Karachi Education Board.
Many studies and experts in vocational guidance show that a lack of vocational guidance is the main reason. Why exams have been abandoned and mostly students have failed in their professional decisions.
Students in Pakistan face three stages of selection that can lead to different jobs. It is important for students to choose topics of interest to them, where they need motivation, inspiration and passion in their careers.
Government is not playing an active roll in career counselling. This negligence leads to failure, not only in academic career but also in the professional life. The foreign countries are active in this, that’s why, they are succeeding by leaps and bounds. If we really want our country to grow, then, this area should taken seriously. And students must provided with right information in right time.
