Choosing a career is important in the changing world. Career opportunities are also globalised since 1991 onwards. In the present scenario choosing a career is a difficult task before the UG and PG students. They have different potentials, qualities, qualification, skill, attitude, aptitude, but they can’t convert it to best career selection.
