In a brand new Series, Univariety presents ‘Student Journey’: A Unique milestone approach to making crucial career-related decisions. The process of Career guidance differs for every grade and the student journey is also different. To start off, we explore the journey for Class IX.
In Class IX, career guidance is targeted towards self-discovery and an in-depth understanding of personality types.
Logical – Quantifying Things, Making Hypotheses and Proving Them
Musical – Discerning Sounds, their Pitch, Tone, Rhythm, and Timbre
Kinesthetic – Coordinating the Mind and Body
Intrapersonal – Reflecting Upon the Behavior
The assessment test comprises of 54 questions and once the students complete the test, they will get a report on their Intelligence type.
The recommended careers are shown in the form of a Venn diagram based on the careers shortlisted by the students and the ones based on multiple intelligence test. Students can modify the shortlisted careers anytime in the careers tab under My Selections.
Students can evaluate prospective careers through activities like internships, social work, job shadowing, and interviewing experts. In this activity, students have to interview at least one professional who is pursuing their dream career.
The platform provides a downloadable course-specific questionnaire which the students can use for the interview. The questions will revolve around-
A typical day at work
Your favorite aspect of your profession
Some of the major challenges that you have faced in your career so far
The students have to take the interview and upload the report in the form of a doc or pdf file. Based on the interview experience, students can modify shortlisted careers under the careers tab of My Selections.
In Class IX, these milestones offer support to students by giving them a snapshot of how their careers may be and the way to proceed with it. Schools that have implemented this on campus have seen an increase in the rates of student admissions, retention and success.
These achievable milestones in career guidance along with academic activities will help students reach their goals in a systematic manner.
