After your SSC result, a first question stands in front of you is, ‘what will you do next?’ Whether you choose less stress, easy study or go with extra mile route.

From now, wherever you go first question that hammer on you is “what are you going to do next?” Many students find this question as frustrating & intimidating as they are yet not clear about their career or how to reach there.

Here is the time when you have to take important decision of your life related to your career. Else you will end up with spoiling your future due to less knowledge of career guidance & making wrong decisions.

I would like to suggest some things to many parents who expect high from their child. Every person has a unique strength, skills and set of knowledge. So their career will be unique as their skill set. Hence, don’t force them to go with field which they can’t handle. Consequently, you will find them in deep depression and destroyed future. Learn to identify & respect their choices.
