Importance of Career Planning
In most parts of the world success is defined by having a good career. Which means making the correct decision of having the right career becomes most important activity of your life. Now look at some statistics especially from a country like India. Every 15 minutes about 40 people try and commit suicide of which 3 are successful. Of the 3 people who die every 15 minutes, one of them has something to do with an academic disappointment. So that's extremely important that you don't have people killing themselves for not making a career choice or good education choice, that's point number one.
Your entire success is defined by what you do after you get your first job. Which means your first job again becomes a priority. Look at the number of people who are working today and are they really happy with what they have chosen as a career. Statistics shows that about 48 percent of the people across the globe are working in jobs that they hate and India has about 60 percent of the number and official number is about 70 which means any company if you look at 100 people of those about 70 people are working in a job that they hate. You or I should not be part of that kind of situation where we don't know or we make incorrect choices selecting the right career.
