The author can be contacted at jain.tk@gmail.com or at 00919414430763 for providing career guidance to the students. Dr. Trilok Kumar Jain Dean, Suresh Gyan Vihar University Jaipur 11/25/2013
  2. 2. BEGINNERS GUIDE TO CAREER ENRICHMENT What is it? Who should Read this?? Why should you read this??? You want to know about career enrichment. You are confused about your own career. You are a career consultant and wish to grow further in your sector. You are a teacher and wish to help your students in their career. You wish to organise some career guidance session and invite Career Consultant Prof. T.K. Jain
  3. 3. You wish to guide your juniors and mentor them for better career. Career Enrichment means additing jobs, activities, and interests in your work schedule that add to more sense of accomlishment, satisfaction, enjoyment, meaning and enable further development of the person to be able to contribute more towards society at large through increased skills and capabilities. Career enrichment can be seen as a continuous process, with the ultimate goal of taking an individual to highest level of accomplished visualised by that individual. Take Sachin Tendulkar for example, the great Indian cricketer improvised in all aspects of sports and personality - which ultimately took him to the highest level of accomplishment, large number of world record and the highest national honour - Bharat Ratna.
  4. 4. Myths about Career: - We cant get what we dream! - wrong, dream it, visualise it and you will get it, but be patient. We cant get great career without jack and cheque! wrong, be firm, build your capabilities and the world will have to recognise you. We must follow great persons! Wrong. Follow yourself. Listen to your soul. You are a unique person in this world. You have come to this world for some unique work. You have your own dreams, aspirations, vision and beliefs. You have your own preferences for social development. Bring the best out of yourself and find that you are really different from others. Put your best initiatives before the world and bring the best out of you to the world.
  5. 5. Career Consultant can’t help you if you are not motivated! Wrong – the career consultant is a motivator. He is only trying to motivate you and let you realise that you can achieve what you wish to achieve. He makes you aware of the opportunities are available here and guides you for them. He mentors you, guides you, motivates you and prepares you for the future. When you are in confusions, the career consultant helps you in evaluating different options. You are incharge of actions, but the career consultant is a source of help for you. If you wish to help others, become a career consultant yourself. I have enjoyed this role for over two decades and therefore I suggest you to take up this role as a part time hobby and as a source of diet for your soul that you are doing something good in this world. Try for 20 jobs, you will get one! Wrong – visualise yourself in a role in the future and prepare for that role. Practice, practice, practice the role in your mind, soul and in your actions. Acquire skills, and capabilities for the role and see that one day you will be performing the role of your dream. We should not change jobs! wrong - but change jobs only to add more skills and capabilities to your profile and to build further credentials to what you are. Don’t just change a job for the sake of change. Job satisfaction is impossible! wrong most people are not
  6. 6. satisfied with their job, but there are people who are able to find an extremely enriching career and are experiencing a very high sense of job satisfaction. It depends on the level of planning and ground work done by a person. No body helps these days! wrong - we take help of others and we extend our help to others. The people who are more helping, are able to get more help also and therefore they are able to rise faster and achieve their career goals faster. Success if for a few persons only! wrong - the world has so
  7. 7. many varieties that everyone can become a winner without forcing others to be looser. Everyone can become successful and achieve the pinnacle of his satisfaction by being able to contribute a great deal in some or other field. There are no opportunities for the youngsters! Wrong – today, we are having increasingly more and more opportunities in varied fields. There are more possibilities for learning, growth and development. Technology has come as an aide to us. Search out, Explore and Grab the opportunities Career is not a straight line. It is a journey that passes through ups and downs but has many connecting elements that enable an individual to relate his past to the future. Plan, predict and prepare for the future and identify your role in the changing times. You can prepare a great career by focussing on the changing role of the technology, social relations and changing scenario. There are always some vacuums created by changing times. These vacuums can be identified and predicted, and you can try to bridge the gap by being the innovator. Dont miss any opportunity to attend seminars, webinars, conferences, and meetings being organised by those who are the most progressive and fast forward persons, so that you can update yourself and prepare for the future. Dont miss any opportunity to have networking with the industry leaders, planners, activists, leaders, social entrepreneurs so that you may also be
  8. 8. able to get a feel of what the people are planning for the future. This networking can be online also and through the online community forums also. Invest time and money in your own skills and capabilities Career development can happen if you are willing to invest for career. Learn out latest skills, and acquire capabilities for tomorrow. Invest your time and resources for this. Learn latest technologies and be the first to acquire new technologies. 8 Cs of Career Enrichment : 1. Customise yourself - shed all your ego, mould yourself to the situation and constantly change, update and modify yourself in terms of your skills, learnings and capabilities (but not interms of your vision, values and vows).
  9. 9. 2. Capitalise your capability - capability will decrease if you dont use it. Capability will improvise if you use it and test it to difficult conditions. 3. Care for time - invest your time in skill building and knowledge updation and remember that time is the best investment in your own development. 4. Connect to people - not just from your own profession but beyond also - because ultimately networking helps in your growth. 5. Colour yourself - means give yourself an eyecatching personality. Engage and immerse yourself in wider social ambiance in varied forms of life through various activities of socialising so that people can identify, recognise and remember you. Your identity should be distinct, eye catching, appealing and enticing. Your should appear to be extremely sociable, willing to
  10. 10. extend help and willing to extend your full support. You should at the same time look trendy, tech-savvy, adaptive, and enthusiastic. Colours yourself in the vibrant colours of life. 6. Courage - success in any field comes from courage and initiative. Break all your fears, leave behind all your hesitation and be the first to say a big YES. Greet your life with a courageous smile to meet any opportunity or challenge that comes your way. 7. Concentrate on your core strengths - build and strengthen your skills and your strengths and minimise your weaknesses. 8. Communicate communicate communicate – you cant live without communicating, so just communicate from your heart. Be true to yourself. Be honest and straightforward on career issues. Nurture a noble cause in your mind. Communicate with yourself and assure yourself that you are here for a great cause. You can achieve miracles, if you believe in yourself. Share your vision, dreams, career plans, and you will find that the world is with you.
