As parents, we all want our kids to be the best they can be, right?
But sometimes we get a little too competitive and start comparing our kids to others.
Like when we see Kiran absolutely performing it in debates and we’re like, “Why can’t you be more like him, kiddo?”
It’s tough, but we got to remember to focus on our own children’s strengths and help them improve in their own way. You know how sometimes we say stuff or ask questions without thinking about what we really mean? Like, are we trying to boost a kid’s self-esteem or accidentally making them feel like they’re not good enough? Or are we trying to measure them against other kids or being too critical without reason? It’s worth thinking about, right? As our children grow up, we can’t help but wonder about their future and the paths they’ll choose. Deciding on a career is one of the most significant milestones in their lives, and it’s natural for them to feel uncertain or overwhelmed. This is where career counseling plays a crucial role in guiding them toward a fulfilling and successful future.
It can be tough to figure out what the child want to do with their life. That’s why career counseling exists – it’s like having their own personal guide to help them navigate their priorities. Counselors work with them to identify their interests and strengths, so they can make informed choices about their careers. It’s a really valuable resource for exploring different paths and setting achievable goals.

How it works?
Career & Subject Assessment | Personalised Guidance | Profile Building| Subject & Career Mapping
Career assessments play a pivotal role in counseling as they provide an unbiased and objective evaluation of a student’s strengths and abilities. These assessments offer valuable insights, enabling students to gain a realistic understanding of themselves, while also helping counselors comprehend their unique attributes that influence career choices and satisfaction. To be effective, a career assessment should be comprehensive, featuring contextually appropriate questions that paint a holistic picture of the student. It should also be scientifically sound, accurate, reliable, and industry-recognized. Considering these factors is vital in selecting the right assessment to guide the student’s career effectively.
In SEED, career counseling involves subject and career mapping reflecting the report of assessment, which aligns a student’s academic subjects with their desired career path. It helps students identify the right subjects and courses to pursue based on their interests, strengths, and career aspirations. This approach ensures a well-planned academic journey and facilitates a seamless transition into a successful and fulfilling career in the field of embedded and real-time systems.
Leveraging technology in counseling activities enhances the assessment process, making it more efficient and accurate. While the assessment evaluates students on essential career-related factors, counseling activities gather specific and targeted information about their daily routine, work style, motivators, academic performance, and more. This additional data validates the student’s suitability for a particular career, completing the holistic evaluation required for a valid career decision. The personalized information not only strengthens the assessment and report but also significantly improves the chances of making a successful career choice. By integrating technology with tailored data, in SEED, counseling activities offer a comprehensive and effective approach to career guidance.
SEED is committed to offer support throughout the entire process, including report interpretation, career awareness building, course selection, and finalizing career choices. Duration of engagement and comprehensive end-to-end support are essential factors to consider. A high-quality report provides expert insights and in-depth career analysis, empowering students to take an active role in their career decisions. Key factors to consider in evaluating reports are analysis depth, simplicity of results, well-defined outcomes, and value-additions provided.
