Education service organisation Potter’s Earth on Saturday released “Careers for Young India,” an exhaustive compilation of emerging careers .The publication was released by Guests of Honour Dr. B.S. Karekar Upashikshan Adhikari Zilla Parishad(Pune & PCMC) and Mr. Frank Freese, Principal of The Bishops Schools, in the presence of Saurabh Sharma, COO of The Potter’s Earth and Anamika Dasgupta Sharma Founder & CEO The Potter’s Earth.
The publication intends to inform high school students about a spectrum of newly emerging professions which may suit their inclination and temperament. In addition to evergreen careers including engineering, medicine, accountancy or pure sciences, the publication has profiled careers such as rural studies, museology, organisational psychology, sports psychology, alternative therapy, data analytics, cloud computing or cryogenics. The Career Report is available as an e-book for general consumption on www.thepottersearth.com.
“As the number of educated young people in a nation surges, so do their dreams and aspirations. High school students today are exposed to more information than ever before. The range, variety and combination of occupations that young adults have the opportunity to explore are phenomenal. Although technology has brought subject matter to their fingertips, students still report feeling confused about which career path to follow,” the publication says in its approach note.
“This report attempts to address one of the key challenges in career discovery of young Indians, namely, that of updated and relevant career information. Our endeavour through the paper is to provide information on 40 top careers that are emerging or will emerge in relation to how India is headed as an economy over the next decade,” Anamika Dasgupta Sharma, Founder & CEO of Potter’s Earth said.
In his address to the gathering Dr. B.S. Karekar complimented The Potter’s Earth on their work and innovative approach to career counseling. He refered to the steps taken by Govt of Maharashtra towards providing relevant career guidance for students, and urged individual associations and organizations like The Potter’s Earth to continue to build resources that can support this effort.
The release of the report was followed by a panel discussion on creation of a support community for young students, comprising schools, parents, role models and counselors. Speakers in the panel discussion included Ms. Shefali Tewarri – Principal of CP Goenka International School , Mr. Shitalchandr Kulkarni – Director of Institute of Modern Music & Lead Guitarist of renowned Pune rock band Tungstn, Mr. Sunil Jalihal – Educator and Parent, and Mr. Saurabh Sharma, COO of The Potter’s Earth. The panelists were of the view that in a time when new career options are evolving and parents are more open to their children taking up non-conventional vocations, there is a need to familiarise the students with the career choices available to them sooner than is done traditionally.
The question of career guidance comes only when a student gets in Grade 10 and above stage or even later when he / she doesn’t have enough time to make up their mind about which field to pursue as career, the speakers felt. The right time to expose the students to the spectrum of non-conventional careers in addition to the well-known options such as engineering, medicine, accountancy or pure sciences, would be the ninth and tenth class onward, they said.
