Early planning of career and progression pathways is vital in order for children and youths to identify their future goals and take appropriate steps for meeting intermediate milestones to achieve them. Advisors in career centers will provide guidance and support to children and youths to help to equip them with the critical personal qualities and practical skills required in the working environment.
This project is designed for education, career guidance, counseling and personality development for students of the institutions of Bhupal Nobles University/ Vidya Pracharini Sabha in particular and children of Mewar and other neighbouring regions in general as per guiding principles of founding fathers of Vidhya Pracharini Shabha. Career counseling and guidance play a key role in helping students, youth and the education system meet their goals. Upward social mobility does not rely on knowledge and skills alone; but also on the understanding about how to use these. A major challenge for students and youth is to decide on career, job or a course which is most suitable for them. Hence there is a necessity of a career counseling, guidance and personality development center in the University.
The main aim of the project is to provide counseling, career guidance and organize personality development sessions so that students and youth know their own skills and professional interests, in order to choose an appropriate career in accordance with their psychological profile, aspirations, studies chosen, professional requirements and existent jobs.
- Guiding young people to adopt fair and realistic decisions about the opportunities they have in terms of educational and vocational route on which to build a successful career.
