what is career counseling

After 10th grade and 12th grade is the most stressful for students. Both the times involve choosing a career path, and most students are not very sure of what they want to become in life. It is none of their fault though. Just come to think of it- a student is only 15 or 16 years old when he has to choose a specific stream in school.
He doesn't have enough knowledge of what career options there are in different fields. Thus, he ends up deciding a stream based on what his friends decide to choose. That is often not a very good approach when it comes to choosing a career and that’s where career counseling can be helpful. Here are some reasons why career counseling is important for students:

Help to Find Student Potential                   

Career counselors have scientifically designed aptitude tests that can help students discover potential. Most students do not know what they are good at, because most of them have not tried different things in life. With an aptitude test, they are able to better figure out what they are good at and what they are not. Thus, they are able to choose a career where they are more likely to find success.

 Provide Guidance                                              

Often, students are not aware of the do and don’t of different streams and careers. Most times, they get their information from friends or family, With career counseling, they are able to get guidance on different fields and careers. Professional counselors are aware of advantages, disadvantages and opportunities in several fields, which help students make a more informed choice.

Reduce Extra Stress & Pressure             

Many times, when we end up choosing the wrong career, we have to make a career jump at some point in our life. Although there is nothing wrong with that, career change can often be very stressful. It can also be embarrassing, since it is not a socially accepted norm, at least in India. When you get proper counseling in schools, you are able to make a better career choice. Thus, it cuts down on the risk of career change at a later stage in life.

  Beneficial For Family & Society                          
A country always needs skilled professionals in every field. When people choose a field they are best in, it always bodes well for a nation. The goal of career counseling is to help students choose a field that is in tune with their skills and their expectations. Thus, with the help of career counseling for students, most candidates end up choosing the right career, which ultimately helps the nation succeed.

Although there are not many schools in India which give career counseling to students, the practice is definitely on the rise. If your school does not provide you professional counselors though, you can always seek the help of independent counselors. It is always better to seek professional guidance rather than go for something that your friends are going for.

Is fashion important for Teenager's ?


There was a time when the concept of fashion was only in the occasions. Though, it would be pointless to compare the present generation with past generation. But I can see a vast difference between the present and the older generation. Fashion is the key word for today's teenagers. In fact, fashion reflects even in the school students. The bags they carry, the watches they wear and the way they carry themselves involve so much of fashion. The teenagers seem to be more fashionable than the adults now. In fact they can be good trendsetters themselves. There are many teens that invent their own styles and aim at becoming an icon among their groups. 

Earlier, fashion used to be found only among the affluent class of people. But now the times have changed. Now, class doesn't matter in any way on the road to becoming fashionable. In fact, everybody is fashionable these days. We can hardly see anyone on the streets who isn't fashion conscious. One of the many factors responsible for the spread and the craze of fashion among people so much is Television. Fashion or "style" in the colloquial language can be called contagious because people get influenced by one who already is fashion conscious. Being fashion conscious not only makes you popular among your folks but also upgrades your confidence level.

Teenagers of the present times have involved themselves so much with fashion that they don't get sufficient time for other work. Instead of reading textbooks they prefer to read fashion magazines. They try hard to imitate the models or glam faces so as to resemblance them. The time they should spend in their studies, they spend in watching program-mes on TV, reading fashion articles or finding the recent trendy clothes on the web. Unlike earlier, now the teenagers do not go out with their parents on weekends, rather they plan their outings with their friends. The prime zones for outings have now become malls for most of them because they can do a lot of shopping there apart from having fun.

Earlier children used to dream of becoming Scientists, Doctors or Engineers or even teachers, but the priority and taste of the children of these days have changed. Most of them desire to be into the glamour world. They find the fashion world better than any other job. In fact, one who is not fashion conscious these days doesn't get much importance. One who looks trendy in the first appearance takes away all the limelight.

                     Here are some of the positive points of fashion       

It helps teens to find like-minded friends.
Teens get to express themselves and their individuality.
Teens get to establish their own identity.
It gives teens a sense of control in their lives in an unpredictable world.

Here are some of the disadvantages of fashion in regards to youth

Boys are starting to look like girls.
Girls try to look "edgy" or conform to racist stereotypes
Some styles tend to reflect self-harm.
The trends come and go, meaning they must spend lots of money.
People criticize youth for their fashion choices.
Some of the school dress codes are arguably too strict.
Clothes tends to cost too much.
Those who aren't dressed to the standards of their peers are ridiculed by them.
The most insecure may commit crimes to get the latest fashions.

But it is the duty and responsibility of the parents to keep a watch over their children of whether they are using much of their time in grooming themselves or in their studies.

Eligibility for Air Hostess





                                 Age Limit

 In India, 19 is the minimum age requirement for a air-hostess. As laid down by DGCA, no airline in India would hire a air-hostess of less than 19 years of age. Airlines have specified the age limit as between 19-27. So far as airlines of other countries are concerned, American airlines don't have any age restrictions and in the European airlines, maximum age for a air hostess is 35 years.

                                             Educational Background to be an Air Hostess

1. 10+2/ equivalent or graduates (in any subject) are eligible to apply for air hostess training programme. Candidates holding diploma/ degree in Hotel Management or tourism management are preferred.
2. Candidates who are in final year of their graduation cannot apply.
3. You must possess a passport
4. Passport is the most important document which you must keep ready before applying for a job in any airlines. Sometimes, domestic airlines also demand passport but their number is very small in India. Most of the advertisements published by the airlines specify that candidates who possess valid passport are only eligible to apply.

                                    Physical Standards required to be an Air Hostess


 According to the standards laid down by most of the national airlines, a female air-hostess must have the height of 157.5 cms and the height requirement for male air-hostess is 163 cms. These are the minimum height requirement for Indian airlines. However, it may vary from airline to airline. For instance, minimum height requirement in Indian Airlines is 5'2" while other airlines demand more height than that.


Airlines want candidate's weight to be in proportion to his/her height. Remember, airlines won't take you even if you have one or two pounds more than what is specified in their proportion chart. Try hard to cut the extra kilos before submitting your resume to any of the airline.


Most airlines prefer normal vision or minimum uncorrected distant vision of 6/24 in each eye. Correctable to at least 6/6 in one eye and 6/9 in the other eye. If you are aspiring to work as a air-hostess and wear glasses, then switch over to contact lenses as early as possible. Power of your contact lenses should not exceed -2D (Minus Two Diopters). Candidates who have undergone any eye surgery to improve their vision or to correct colour blindness, are not eligible to apply.

As mentioned earlier, air-hostess is the first person who welcomes the passenger. They have to keep smile on their face during the whole course of flight as it gives a sense of pleasure to the passengers. Healthy white teeth are one of the essentials of a good smile. If you have overlapping or gaped teeth, get them braced as soon as possible because braces would normally take a year or two to set your teeth in order.


As international flights go across seas routes, swimming has become mandatory requirement in all the airlines of the world. air-hostess should possess all the skills that can help in safeguarding the lives of passengers in any emergency situation and swimming is one of the important factors.


Good height, toned body, expensive dresses and accessories are not enough for getting a job in this field. In addition, air-hostess must take good care of their body cleanliness.

Voice Quality:  

Air hostess must have quality diction, good pace, proper pitch and be enthusiastic in speech so that listeners can easily understand all the spoken words. It is crucial that air-hostess uses good grammar, correct language and expressions.
Standing in front of mirror and practicing announcements is a sure way to improve the voice quality and to learn the techniques of good speaking.

Language Proficiency:

 An Air-hostess must have a good command over English language. Fluency in any other international language is an added advantage but it is not mandatory in India. However, some foreign airlines make it a compulsion. Familiarity with regional languages work as an asset for air-hostess who are working in domestic airlines.

Work Experience

Work experience always counts. You can mention your work experience or internships in call centres, hotels, travel companies if you have worked as ground staff with any of the airlines. Never specify any false experience because interview panel will grill you about every thing mentioned in your resume.

Medical Fitness :  

 Air-hostesss have to go through various medical fitness tests. These include eye test, blood, urine and stool test, AIDS test, Hepatitis B test, hearing ability test, Chest X-ray, ECG and Ultra Sound. Candidates who are suffering from any serious disease such as AIDS or Hepatitis B are not eligible. Airlines are very strict in this regard and in case of any minor disability, you would be rejected. It is better to get yourself checked first and then go for the training.

Written exam:   

Written exam is not a compulsion but some airlines make it mandatory for a air-hostess to go through a written exam in order to qualify for an interview. The motive of conducting written exam is to judge the language proficiency of a candidate, his/her ability to solve simple mathematical problems, knowledge of geographical concepts, historical facts and tourism industry.
