THE ROAD LESS TRAVELLED

Four promising careers for millennials and the tech-savvy generation.

Teenage is the time when most children are already feeling baffled about a lot of things happening around them. A critical decision that they have to make at this age is the choice of career.

 Although we keep saying to them that education is the key to success, adolescents find it extremely difficult to fit this key into the right lock and open their path to success. Finding the right career is like finding the perfect match.

Most of them stumble and keep dabbling from one career to another trying to figure out what they are doing in life and what they should be doing. Many of them are afraid to take the road less travelled. 

It is time to get rid of our fears and expand our boundaries. To those who are always in quest of more here are the four promising careers towards a bright future

Architecture

When we think of science stream we come up with only medicine and engineering. Architecture is often less explored. Rather than just building structures architects nowadays are more into product designing and planning cities.



To become an architect,

  • Pupils must first appear for an entrance exam NATA i.e. National Aptitude Test in Architecture, conducted by the Council of Architecture at national level for admission to 5-year B.Arch. Degree Course at all recognized institutions across India.
  •  Students appearing for the NATA should have a sound knowledge about drawing, mathematics, physics and chemistry concepts

The eligibility criteria mentioned in the downloadable brochure available on the NATA-Official Website is as follows:

  • The candidates who have passed 10+2 level examination with at least 50% aggregate marks in Physics, Chemistry & Mathematics (PCM) and also at least 50% marks in aggregate of the 10+2 level examination OR 
  • Passed 10+3 Diploma Examination with Mathematics as compulsory subject with at least 50% marks in aggregate shall be eligible to appear for NATA-2020.

 Students who want to gain mastery and complete higher education can do an M.Sc. in Sustainable Development and Environment Management (MSDEM) from Garware Institute of career education and Development. A M.Arch Degree in Urban Design provides a lucrative job as an urban planner to a young architect students. 

Apart from being an urban planner one can opt for a three year (part-time), Master of Architecture in landscape offered by L.S.Raheja College of Architecture.

Company Secretary

For those feeling stuck after completing their graduation in the commerce field, company secretary holds great future prospects. A Company Secretary (CS) is a senior position in a private sector company or public sector organization and thus ensures that decision of the board of directors are implemented.


This course is run by a statutory body recognized by the government of India known as ICSI (The Indian Institute of Company Secretary). It can be pursued by those who feel that they cannot be a chartered accountant because of its competitiveness.

  • There is no specific admissibility required for one to become a company secretary.
  • A graduate from any discipline excluding fine arts can enrol for the CS executive program of this course. 
  • Students who have passed their HSC i.e. 12th std or its equivalent of any stream except fine arts can take admission in the CS Foundation Program. To become a CS, one has to complete the CS Professional Program.
  • Thus, we can say that students who have just obtained their HSC mark sheet have to clear three levels of CS that is CS Foundation Program followed by the CS Executive and Professional Program. Whereas those registering for this course after graduation needs to clear two levels that is the CS Executive and Professional program.

The easy online admission process with an affordable fee is a unique feature offered by ICSI. Aspirants can download the brochure from the ICSI official website. On completion The Companies Act 2013, provides young individual opportunities to work as a Key Managerial Personnel, Governance Professional, Secretarial Auditor, Registered Valuer, Insolvency Professional, GST Professional, Corporate Compliance and Risk Manager, Advisor Board, Corporate Planner and Strategic Manager.

A lot of helplines including psychologist are run on a national and state level to help those in distress and help an individual in their grieving process to people who have lost their loved ones overwhelmed by the uncertainty, and adapting to the new normal. 

All this has increased the demand for mental health professionals who can help people find a purpose, relieve their anxiety and provide a listening ear to those facing emotional turmoil.

So how does one become a mental health professional?
