New Emerging Fields Of Study
When it comes to careers, there was a time when we Indians tended to gravitate towards "safe" and "lucrative" career options in the fields of medicine, engineering, banking or law. We often chose these "science fields" due to parental pressure rather than passion.
Those days are passé and today, our kids often have strong opinions on what they want to do and there are limitless career options. This trend is supported by educational institutes who offer plethora of choices and industries keen to cultivate young talent through internships, volunteering opportunities and training exposure.
Expose your child to the ocean of possibilities out there, to ensure he has a steady career that he is also passionate about.
