Tips to overcome Career Barriers- Dr. Shahid Amin Trali
| Education Jagat - 19 Feb 2021

When students don’t know what the future will offer, or when the path they think better can take an unexpected turn, it makes sense to pursue a diverse portfolio of options rather than just sticking single-mindedly to one. Even in better times, career change is never a perfectly linear process. Students need to do more research and try to explore the industries. They need to be highly active in this tough time.  They should maintain a proper plan. Most importantly, students must highly acquire the skills for the career option they are interested in.
 Students must do a proper SWOT analysis; identify Personal strengths and weaknesses, and the Opportunities and Threats in the workplace at the moment.  They must get a clear idea of which skills they need to improve.  Students should also focus on building their effective Curriculum Vitae (CV). This can be possible through volunteering or developing skills in online courses.  They must try to attend the related seminars and workshops that happen related to their career choice. They will meet influential people and leaders of the same field who can broaden their thinking. This will also give a hint to potential employers that the student has done something constructive with his/her time. 
 The ultimate goal for our students is undoubtedly success in their careers. But sometimes there may arise some situations where things wouldn’t go according to their plans. This kind of uncertainty might even ruin the self-esteem of our students which is yet another career obstacle. Some of the students may find comfort in being stagnant.   But that can prove a major barrier in their career. Students must take risks and try to be adventurous. Risks are going to pay off sooner or later. Students must not underestimate their potential as it will not take them anywhere in life. They have to understand that the list of obstacles goes on and on in our career journey. We must be active in finding ways to overcome them. Challenges and obstacles are always unpredictable and they cannot expect them to vanish out completely.
