Today’s world has become extremely competitive. It seems it is becoming harder and harder to apply for colleges. Students and their parents are now planning to get into their ‘dream college’ earlier and earlier. Now, young students are expected to know their career and live their life on a path to that career. Getting jobs seems to be getting harder too. You may have seen posts online complaining about how entry level jobs also seem to require 2+ years of experience!
It becomes challenging for students to start planning for their future early, since most of them don’t know what their passion even is! In these cases, career counseling can be a great help to a student’s life, and help them on their path to get into college and then, get the job they are happy with.
