"How should I get established
in my career?"
"What should I do?"
You can help your children find answers to above important career
questions. How? Help your son or daughter in following the 3 simple
Career Planning steps given below. These steps are based on career planning techniques which we teach in
a complete self-development course for students.
Career Planning Step 1: What I want to do?
In this step, ask your children to think and decide what job or
business they would like to do. This is the most important step! Their
choice should be based on their natural interest and talent.
Career Planning Step 2: How am I going to get that?
Once your children decide what job they want to do, then next step is to
find out how to get it.
In this step, you and your children have to find answers to these 3
basic career related questions:
• What courses or training they have to do in order to get the job
• What working style or skills they have to learn to excel in their
• What kind of part-time job or internship they have to do?
Once your children find out answers to above questions, they will have a
powerful career plan sitting right in front of their eyes. You can
easily help your son or daughter find answers to such questions by
searching on internet or library.
Career Planning Step 3: Who can help me in what I want to do?
This step is all about forming important "connections." Do you
know any one who can help your children get more detailed information or
even a job of their dream?
You would be surprised at
how many connections we can come up with if we ask people around us such
• Your Friends and their friends
• Your children's teachers
Also, you can ask your children to write names of people who can give more detailed
information about their career, who can tell them which college or
course is good, or whom they should contact to get a job. Even your
children's friends may have more better connections!
Once you help your children get such information, they will be able to work on
their career goal very easily.
Now here's a smart tip: the best person who can help your children in
this task is a person who is already working in that career.
For example, if your daughter wants to become Interior Designer then she
should meet and ask for guidance from a person who is already working as
an interior designer.
