Aptitude, job market needs imperative for making career options: Rana

Highlighting crucial importance of career counseling in the present day competitive world, National Conference Provincial President Devender Singh Rana on Tuesday exhorted students at the secondary or intermediate level to choose their option and pursue the goal single-mindedly with sincerity of purpose.
“Choosing a definite career option is indeed a challenging task but experts and career councillors can be of immense help for students to take a decision keeping in view their aptitude and needs of the job-market from time to time”, Rana said while inaugurating career counseling series from external sources, organized by Bharati Foundation, at Government Girls Higher Secondary School, Kandoli in Nagrota, as part of the initiative taken by local MLA. The Director, Zilla Sainik Board Jammu Brig (Retd) Harcharan Singh and Col (Retd) K L Gupta explained to the students about career options in defence services, saying unique opportunities were available for young boys and girls in the three services.
Rana described career counselling as a recent phenomenon, which has enabled students to concentrate on specific spheres rather than exploring random options. “This will surely benefit enterprising boys and girls in a big way”, he said and hoped that the Bharati Foundation will involve corporate sector too in this enviable initiative so as to have optimal outreach to the areas like Nagrota Assembly Constituency.
Rana expressed his gratitude to Zila Sainik Board for making students of the area aware about various challenging options in the Army, Navy and Air Force. He said the students of the constituency are second to none and thus can make their mark in defence services.
