2 Comments on Smart moves for a great career: Make the right choice at the right time!

It is no exaggeration that career decisions after class 10 are complex and confusing. Before parents can find an answer to this question, it is important for them to first introspect and identify the career that suits their child’s passion, strength, interest, and aptitude – or in other words, they must help their children find their ‘true calling’.

Role of parents

Students in India are most often influenced by societal pressures, family backgrounds, and peer pressure. In addition to this, a lot of importance is placed on the salary potential that a career can offer. In this process, parents fail to ask whether their children are truly passionate about their chosen careers.

Why after class 10?

It might seem far-fetched to take decisions keeping your child’s career in mind when they are at such a young age. However, a wrong turn here can make or break the way their career will take shape. Class 10 is the ideal time to engage them and provide the guidance and support.

Step 1:  Discover – Know yourself

It is important to discover your child’s true potential, strength and basic interest. For example, if your child’s interest lies in fashion and apparels, then fashion designing is certainly not the only career option for them to choose. Surprisingly, there is a lot more than that. At Lodestar, we help you understand your child’s true interests and uncover other possibilities like fashion technology, textile engineering or fashion business management in addition to fashion design as a career choice.

Step 2: Determine – Know your options

We help you understand the exact requirements for each of the possible choices. In this case, we would guide you towards the right path that leads to determine your child’s core interest. For fashion technology, you need to opt for science and clear the NIFT aptitude test whereas for fashion designing you need to choose arts and clear design aptitude tests for institutes like National Institute of Design (NID).

Step 3: Decide – Make an informed decision

Finally, we enable the parent and the child to make the right choice based on structured information. After assessing multiple criteria it becomes easy for the child and the parent to decide the stream, electives, right college, and finally the course.

    I am a parent of a Son studying in 9th Standard CBSE.
    One of the important aspects in Career selection seems to be the child’s interest.
    But most of the students I know in my son’s class do not have any specific interest. How do you deal with such a situation??

      Hi Srinivas,

      That’s an interesting question! Children often possess latent interests which are fully developed due to lack of valid information that makes interest based career decisions difficult.

      At Lodestar, we help identify their interests through a combination of one-on-one sessions with our guidance specialists, and personality and interests tests. Our guidance experts are specially trained to elicit and identify student’s interests. In addition to this, they are exposed to reports of over 250 career options in 15 industries. Such exposure can help the student discover themselves and their true career path.

      Please mail us your contact details at and we’d love to have a more detailed discussion on this topic!
