After schooling, it will be a long doubt and confusion before many of our students, which stream should they opt for higher studies? Surely, they would be afraid to take a decision as the scope of employment varies inconsistently from time to time. There are certain things that you should remember and aware of before choosing a course.

Selection of a course as in the case of majority of students is purely a matter of job opportunities. It is not wrong but it is not enough. You have to consider a number of factors before you decide on a course for higher studies. Guide to your dream choice:-

·        Think of your Area of Interest

·        Find out what is left undone or what you can do

·        How can I develop a my career

·        Discuss it with your academic advisor

·        Use social media and other internet sources

·        Compare your opinion with others

You have to choose your college and course wisely. Use online assessment tools (such as http://www.assessment.com, https://careerfitter.com) for self evaluation. Meet with a career counselor to discuss to know more about your career choice; learn more about the skills and values you required to have. Academic adviser, lecturer, teacher and director of studies can assist you in reviewing your academic options and giving shape to your plans and dreams. Talk with them what would you dream of your future and how it suits your choice.
