WHEN SHOULD WE START CAREER PLANNING?

When should start Career Planning - Mount Olympus School

“How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.”
Is Happiness in life directly related to Career?

1. It is said that an average person spends around 90,000 hours at work over a lifetime i.e. almost 1/3rd of our life. Hence, it obvious if we are happy at work it will add to our happiness in life.
2. We stand at the threshold where we can choose happiness for life by making correct choices.
3. Career Guidance is of much significance and has outstanding importance on almost all aspects of our lives be it family, relationships, mental health or financial health.

Deciding a career is an important aspect in life which we often keep pushing ahead only to make hasty decisions in the end. When the time to choose the career is near, very often we land up choosing wrong career for ourselves/our children. All good CBSE schools today handhold their parents and students with systematic career orientation and guidance.
Top CBSE schools assist the parents and students in the complex process of career guidance by helping them to start early, handholding by full time school counsellors, creating profiles, by providing platforms for guidance from experts and by following a well-defined plan for proper guidance. CBSE schools conduct virtual internships, career talks by professionals, for industrial exposure.
