Unconventional Careers
02-May-2017

We are all posed the following question at some point of time in our lives – “What are your plans ahead?”

A few years ago the answers would have been, Engineer, Doctor, Lawyer, Software developer etc. However, today we hear some out of the box and interesting answers like Growth hacker, Video jockey, Shoe Designer, Chef etc. Career preferences have changed drastically over time. People are pursuing something they are passionate about, accept new challenges and are also willing to take risks associated with a varied career.

Today there are an infinite number of unconventional career options available. These careers have their own advantages and disadvantages. Unlike conventional careers, they give us a sense of uniqueness, change, being different, spontaneous and fun. Also still there is much less competition as compared to the conventional courses. The disadvantage is that any unconventional career carries with it a sense of insecurity, temporariness and more based on the whims of the role holder. It requires a lot of patience, hard work, and courage to keep moving forward. People in the unconventional career need to find their own way in a world that encourages the conventional, tried and tested ways. Conventional careers like Engineer, Doctor etc bring with it a sense of security and a higher chance of finding jobs, provided one has gone through the grind of a rigorous co-curricular and extracurricular discipline. Conventional careers also have high competition and the stress that goes with it.

Students need to make a SWOT Analysis before making a Career decision. It is important to consider one’s Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats. Knowing one’s abilities, personality, interests, passions, hobbies and an awareness of these hobbies can be transformed into careers is important. It is useful to ask oneself the following questions:

  1. Do I have the requisite knowledge and skills for a particular career?
  2. Do I have a supportive and encouraging family?
  3. Do I know someone in a similar career and how can they be of any help to me?
  4. Do I have the right personality for a particular career?

Sometimes an offbeat career may take longer to settle down and make a living. Having patience, perseverance, willingness to work hard and a supportive family is helpful in the pursuit of an unconventional career choice.

So if you are interested in doing something different, something interesting, answer, get out of your comfort zone, identify your capabilities, interests and Know your Personality with the CB5 Career Shakti!
