Identify the openings – The Hindu

Q /
I am 22 years old and have graduated in Information Technology. I didn’t get a job from campus internship. I’m trying to get hired off campus but can’t pass the interviews. Should I take a part-time job until I find a job in my field, or work on my skills and apply to more companies? Abhishek

Dear Abishek,

You need to identify the gaps and lack of skills you need to work on, upgrade and improve in order to feel confident about facing an interview panel. Getting another part-time job is like sweeping the real problem under the rug. Have faith and trust in yourself, make the necessary changes and visualize what you really want in life. We’re all in the works.

Q /
I will soon be an English Honors graduate. My parents want me to do my masters and become a teacher. But I want to become a cabin crew member and I tried to tell them that I can do an online course and that I don’t want to be a teacher. They say aviation careers lack stability and longevity. How can I convince them? Prabha

Dear Praba,

I don’t entirely agree with your parents. Being a cabin crew member is not a forever career but it will surely fulfill and satiate your dream of being one and working in the aviation industry. It is a great idea to do your masters through distance learning or a registered credible online institute. You will always have those credentials to make a second career choice when you are ready. Also trust the process of life; you will recognize your true calling when you have had the experiences that you want to experience consciously. There’s no point in being a dissatisfied, demotivated, demoralized teacher.

Psychology is an umbrella term under which you can do a lot. This depends on your strong interest and suitability. In addition to branching out into criminology and forensics, you can study social psychology, counseling psychology, behavioral psychology, clinical psychology, research, social work, human resources, personnel development, or educational and rehabilitation psychology. The choice of college depends on your Masters and the final course you are shortlisting. Some reputable universities for Masters are DU, TISS, Christ Bangalore, Mumbai University and Maharaja Sayajirao University of Vadodara.

Q /
I did my PG in Rural Development from IGNOU. I have been preparing for the UPSC exams for four years but without positive results. Are there any diplomas or other courses I can do to get a job in India or abroad? jessica

MA Rural Development students have an area of ‚Äč‚Äčapplication in numerous sectors such as NGOs, academic and research institutions, governmental organisations, charities, ministries of welfare, academic fields and rural industries. However, the four-year gap can become a problem. You must identify vacancies, jobs and opportunities in the public and private sectors that are willing to engage with candidates like you on specific projects and that have allowances and perks for regular job entry. You can also branch into other professional courses like PGD in Management, MBA, Project Management, PID in Digital Marketing or Business Analytics, PGPM, etc.
