When it comes to a career one wrong decision can end up wasting a lifetime of talents and missed opportunities. Hence, one has to take utmost care while choosing a career option. There are so many people around us who are not happy with their jobs and careers. None of us want to end up in that boat. There are some important points which can help one to have better and right decision about the career. Today, we provide a list of dos and don’ts when facing this situation in life. This is probably the most critical decision of our lives and as they say ‘Prevention is better than cure’ so is the case with this situation too.


  1. Figure out interests, likes and hobbies

There are very few people in our country who love what they do. And there are even more who end up doing a job they don’t like for an entire lifetime. It is better to pursue a career in something one likes and the right time to figure this out is before choosing a field. So figuring out what makes one happy and what one is best at would be a good start. Who knows it might turn out to be a great career too.

  1. Make a list of career options and choices

There might be more than one thing which interests a single person. Having choices makes for great backup as well. So make a list of more than one option. For example, these could be the possible choices:

  • Fashion designer
  • Creative writer
  • Graphic designer
  • Music composer

And so on.

  1. Make a list of colleges and institutes for each course

For each course there are a number of colleges offering varied courses. To become a creative writer, one can pursue Literature studies or a creative writing course. Similarly for each such course there are top institutes from where getting a degree would benefit the most. For example

  • Fashion Designing- NIFT/NID
  • Literature Studies- Mumbai University/JNU/DU

And so on.

  1. Prepare for the entrance examinations of various colleges and courses

One should keep in mind that getting into top institutes for any course isn’t easy. They have their own entrance examinations which need to be cleared for joining the course. So prepare well for these. NIFT entrance test preparation, NID studio test coaching, preparation for JEE and all types of entrance exams is provided by many coaching classes. NIFT, NID, JNU/DU and many such entrance exams can be cracked by joining a good coaching class.

The don’ts are equally critical too. So take care of the following as well:


  1. Listen to what others say
  2. Make a hasty decision
  3. Think of it as the last resort

If these things are taken care of one is sure to be happy as well as successful in his career choice. These are simple yet effective steps that can easily help one choose a right option for lifelong career.
