The best way of selecting one’s career is to select according to his/her own interest areas. This right choice of career can be done only by giving awareness of the interested areas. If the student is aware of the interest areas of his/her own, the selection of career can be made effective and useful to achieve the desired goal of life. It also provides a platform for further progress in his/her life. Consequently, such selection will save time, money and energy of the students. This type of study will also benefit to the parents also. The awareness of the parents on their children’s area of interest can enable them to guide their children in the selection of their career. Instead of forcing the students to take their higher studies, knowledge about their children’s career will in advance help in the selection of career. The pursuit of higher education has been promoted by parents and the government, at least in part in response to the expectation that India is transforming from a resource-based to a knowledge-based economy, in which most future occupations will require some kind of postsecondary credential. As a central construct of career development, career exploration involves activities that attempt to relate knowledge of oneself to the external world and the internal world structures) and can be described as an openness to experience that fosters self discovery and prompts reflection about environmental action.
