The Need for Career Planning
All successful people have one thing in common: they are interested and fully involved in what they do. Interest makes a person go that ‘extra mile’ and is the key to work satisfaction.
However, ‘interest’ is seldom given priority in career decision-making. Career planning and job choice are not taken seriously in early life particularly, when parental influence, peer pressure, unsolicited advice and popular trends have great influence decision-making. Haphazard career decisions create problems at intra-personal, inter-personal and organisational levels. Wrong career decisions make life miserable for the individual, and result in under-utilisation of human resource in organisations. Career decisions must therefore be made with great care.
