Counselling - Career

Career choices are never easy! Truly, choosing a career that matches your abilities and aspirations is one of life's most difficult and important decisions. Don't know what career is right for you? Or, what options are open to you? How to qualify? What courses to choose?

Most great things begin with a plan. So career should be no different. A plan will give the students something to work towards. It will also help them make the most of the opportunities that come their way. Career Counselling provides advice on how to choose a career that is right for a student.

The objective of the Career Counselling and Guidance Programme is to identify personality strengths, talents and interests of the students. This facilitates subject selection and creates awareness about career opportunities and further enables students to make informed choices relevant to the current scenario of opportunity and change.

Career guidance and counselling services occupy an important place in educational context as well as in behaviour modification in children because of their varied personal problems as well as educational needs. Therefore Daly College gives utmost priority to guidance and counselling and ensures that children grow and develop to the full extent possible.

There are academic counsellors in the school who assists students in all the domains of life –viz. academics and personality development.
