    What’s your direction?

    It does matter to know who we are and in what direction we are moving!

    Our degrees and education that we so proudly display on our CVs and social contacts appear meaningless in proportion to lack of skills and failure to actually do something about them. While the Jack of all trades might have got a smirk, these days, if the Jack knows all trades – it is much better than knowing nothing at all.

    What are we exactly talking about? Take your degree for example. What degree are you pursuing? Fine Arts? Law? Journalism? Whatever……

    So apart from studying for your exams and tests and filling in your assignments and projects what else are you gaining?

    It helps to get some practicality of the field that you have chosen so that you can then further on understand the profession you’ll be specifically dealing with. This constitutes the first step towards the direction you want to move into. Awareness through practical learning and understanding is the essential step.

    The next step is about your immediate environment. This constitutes your friends or peers. Are they in the same field as yours? Do they show similar inclination or characteristics towards a particular profession? Have a great ‘let’s learn more about this’ time with them. This step helps in assimilation a lot of data with other’s help and then leads to better discussions about the choices one has to make.

    The third step is actually trying out different things in one’s particular field and seeing for yourself whether you are enjoying the work or not. Internships help in this step. Not only does one get a peek into the world of work but also get the idea of whether one is suited to do a particular task or not.

    These three steps then determine the direction of your professional choices and career path. People to go through these steps and try out different things tend to get a better grip and clarity of what is happening in comparison to those who don’t venture out much. Bookish knowledge has never helped anyone ever. Not even Einstein. So the basic point we are making here is to get a degree but also some degree of awareness of where you are headed.
