Career and Guidance
We at Mar Gregorios Memorial (MGM) Higher Secondary School aim to become a Leading Innovative
School of Bokaro, bridging the gap between the school education, higher education and the industry.

sessions, panel discussions, one on one session to enhance the student’s competencies in selfknowledge, educational and occupational exploration & career planning. Specific inputs are given to the
students regarding career choices mapped and aligned to their passion/interests which would help the
students to fulfil their career goals and serve as the bridge between their college experience and
employment or graduate school, helping them apply what they have learned.
What is Career Guidance & Counselling and why it is important for a child?
Choosing the right career is one of the most crucial decisions of a student’s life. Globalization along with
rapid advances in technology have thrown open a plethora of new career options to the youth. This reality
has created the need for Career Guidance to be an integral part of the education system. Most students
choose careers based on their marks obtained and not on what they are passionate about.
Career Guidance & Counselling develops a student’s competencies in self-knowledge, educational and
occupational exploration & career planning. Specific inputs are given to the students regarding career
choices mapped and aligned with their passion/interests. Career Counselling helps the students to fulfil
their career goals and serve as the bridge between their college experience and employment or graduate
school, helping them apply what they have learned.
It is the continuous process of thinking about the interests, values, skills and preferences and exploring
the learning options available for a child. It generally involves getting to know what your child wants with
respect to career opportunities. It is a process that helps to design a career path for your child.
