CAREER AWARENESS AMONG YOUTH

Career as a noun can be defined as a profession or occupation pursued by a person over a significant period of his life and provides him with opportunities for progress in life. It may involve acquiring special skills or education or training.

Wikipedia defines Career as “AN individual’s journey through learning, work & other aspects of life.”

Herbert Simon defines career as “an honourable occupation which one normally takes up during his/her youth with the expectation of advancement and pursues it until retirement.”

Every individual seems to have a free will as to the choice of his/her career. As soon as a child is sent to elementary school, he starts learning about behavior skills and develop an attitude of  responsibility, cooperation and problem-solving through Role-Model technique. If you are going to ask any First-Grade student as to what he would like to be when he grows up, the list would include trades as to what his imagination can make him think of like police, doctor, engineer, teacher, post man, astronaut, mechanic and so on. Over a period of time, the list starts getting shorter and shorter and more specific, and would seem to be influenced by family, friends, educational institutes and the industry trends. It is at this juncture in life, we realize that the child should have been given Career Awareness. The child can do better in the school, if he is able to visualize the connection between education and his future career.

Career Awareness means an understanding of the various options available with a person for his long-term development, professionally as well as individually. If we ask about Career Awareness from the current generation youth, the trend seems to be surprising. The youth today appears to be confused about his future career options, the drop-out rate is very high in educational institutions. The reason may be because they live in a fantasy world or never plan for the future or lack motivation or not able to discover their potential or under the influence of their peers, relatives or parents they choose something which is not their true potential.

It, therefore, becomes apparent that they need a Career Awareness Primer to help them develop a clear understanding of various options available vis-à-vis their potential. It is quite natural that they might get tempted by the trends and jump into a career which might not enable them to exploit their true potential.

As a child, there appear to be many fancy professions as our career choice, but there seems to be a lack of understanding as to what would take us there. It is at this point that the role of Parents, Society, Friends and Educational institution comes into picture.

There will be multiple career paths for you and thousands of jobs available to a willing person but the real challenge in Career Awareness is to find out the option that is of real interest to you in the industry, which can provide a platform for progress, can give you a lifelong monetary as well as personal fulfillment. This awareness does not come as a snapshot in your hands, rather it is a process which needs to be carried on for a period of time and different players have to play their role. A person spends almost 40 years of his lifetime on his work, so it becomes important that an informed decision is taken to make a right choice.

Planning for Career is a conscious process which demands that the person explores himself –  “WHO you are, WHERE do you want to go or WHAT do you want to be at some defined point in the future”.

Proliferation of Digital literacy in Indian higher education sector

The quality of higher education scenario in India today is highly influenced and simplified by the propagation of digital innovative tools and solutions of educational technological advancements. The awareness about the implementation of these digital tools in imparting technical and management education too is on a rise. With the advent of digitization in higher education arena, the distance between subject experts and learners has all the more lessened. The use of internet, tablets, smartphones, personal computers, laptops and social media platforms and applications like Facebook and others have a far more enriching impact on proliferation and spread of digital education than one can imagine. As compared to government institutes, the private higher education sector has been adopting digital technology at a faster rate. Management and technical institutions and colleges in India are adopting digital tools and techniques to widen learning horizon of new era of learners.  Educational ERP’s, smart-boards, MOOC’s, Audio visual aids, educational simulations, flip class room technique, real-time learning and response methods and personalized instructions and other interactive softwares of smart classes have made the task of imparting higher education simple and hassle-free both for the learners as well as the instructors thereby encouraging online learning.Also the benefits of economies of scale can be reaped by the users and providers of the digital solutions as the cost per student works out to be low though perceived to be high by many.The online course structures are cost effective, affordable and easily manageable. There is a dire need of training the instructors for Digital Teaching. There is a requirement of deeper adoption and penetration of digital revolution in Indian higher education system. Initially there are certain infrastructural and structural bottlenecks to deal withalong with bringing the higher education curriculum of varied disciplines and fields in depth in many languages on a digital platform. Another lacuna is the reluctance on the part of teachers to get trained and adapt to digital softwares and solutions.Although the government of India has assured availability of funds for digital technology implementation and advancements however lack of proper infrastructure is inhibiting digital progression. Imparting concepts through digital tools requires requisite planning. One of the best advantage of digital mode of higher education is that it can help the learner get insights sitting anywhere from eminent academicians, corporate personalities, business leaders as well as the industry connoisseurs. These professionals share their valuable experiences on the current and relevant happenings of the corporate world thereby helping the students to comprehend and gain thorough and diversified knowledge. Digital tools can also be used to assess and evaluate the performance of the students. Sighting the benefits of ease of imparting digital medium of education, need and quality based education, the requirement is to bring digital literacy to the rural higher education sector as well. As the instructors can be made available through virtual classrooms. To conclude, it can be said that digital learning intents to disrupt the various barriers that are inhibiting people from receiving quality education in the traditionally bound classrooms both in urban as well as rural higher education sector.

Exciting time ahead for Indian Management Education

Management education has a short history in India. It is interesting to know that IIM Ahmadabad was not the first management institute in India. The first MBA was started by Andra University in 1950. Post 1950s was an era of commerce education in India. Management education started growing post 1970 and 1980. One of the basic differences between commerce and management education is that the management education is a professional education where as the commerce education is an academic education. This distinguishes the difference between the degrees too. Management Institutions have also grown very rapidly in India in this period of time. India has also seen the liberalization era post 1990s. This had a tremendous impact on the management education. Management education being a professional education also changed its face in this era. First the need for management professionals grew very fast. Industry needed trained management professionals, the second major change was the need for management professionals with international exposure, as the businesses in India were growing across the globe, and Industry needed the management professionals who can handle business operations at the global level. Globalization has brought few basic changes in Indian economy. The first major change was the growth of retail and service sector in India. Average income of Indians has also been growing; this has created demands of various services with quality delivery in India. Management institutes also needed to change and management institutions did accept these challenges. On a broad level new curriculum were developed and new subjects were introduced over a period of time.  One of the major differentiator which has emerged over this period in Indian management education is the binding of Indian values in the management education. This is the resent trend in Indian management education which has created a clear differentiation with western management education.  This according to me is a very strong differentiator and will put Indian management education on a very strong pedestal to compete with the western management education systems. Few management Institutions have taken this very strongly and have created a niche for themselves, this has also given very encouraging results. No need to stress at this point that the Indian value system has a very strong background, it is based on our religious and cultural values developed over centuries. Indian value system in the integral part of an Indian; learned from the families and the early education. This value system is now becoming a part of management education. This change has been seen from the efforts made by the government at the policy level where CSR activities were made mandatory for the corporate. Organizations also realized that the rapid growth of business has forced them to look for people with high value system, as in the growth phase the dependency of an organization on their employees is very high. Various corporate scams at International level also forced the HR departments to look at this area of concern to them. Over all this has put the Indian management education at a different level and created deference for itself. This is the area where top Indian management institutions will shine and create a differentiation for themselves in future. This will also create a demand for Indian management professionals across the globe. Overall the Indian management education has very exciting time ahead.
