CREATING A STRONGER FUTURE THROUGH COUNSELING


SECONDARY SCHOOL 2016 CAREER DAY
Tuesday, March 1st, 2016 has gone down in the history of Raberto Schools as a day meant not to be forgotten in a jiffy. The counseling unit of the school presented the 2016 Career Day for the students in S.S.S. One, proudly referred to as "The Royal Ambassadors". This event is organized by the school in the bid to guide the students towards choosing the appropriate subject combination that would land them befitting career choices as commensurate with their natural endowment. This year's edition was tagged "Creating a Stronger Future Through Counseling".

The school's counsellor in her opening remarks pointed out this fact "... not every student grows up to be a lawyer, a doctor, a pilot or an engineer, though, we feature much of these fields of study ..." Therefore, it becomes pertinent for the school to guide the students towards building careers which would not only put food on the table for them in future but, careers that will make them to be contented individuals throughout their work life. This is also in line with the following notable quote by Mark Sullivan.

"To find a career to which you are adapted by nature, and then to work hard at it, is about as near to a formula for success and happiness as the world provides. One of the fortunate aspects of this formula is that, granted the right career has been found, the hard work takes care of itself. The hardworking is not hardworking at all".

In order to make the day worthwhile, professionals/skilled personnel from diversified works of life were invited to disseminate first hand information to the students. The invited dignitaries include: * A Renowned Presenter/Producer from Nigerian Television Authority (NTA). * A Banker. * A Lawyer. * A Public Relations Officer. * An Engineer. *A seasoned Guidance/Counsellor.

These established professionals were given twenty minutes each to get the students acquainted with the following areas: # What each profession entails # Entry qualification # Number of years to be trained # Financial implications # Institutions to be trained # Job prospects # Risks/challenges # Retirement ages

What seemed a mind blowing knowledge for the students is the fact that Public Relations is now being studied as a separate course in some institutions of higher learning in Nigeria. To cap up the event, the students exhibited their happiness through a musical rendition, as they skillfully handled different musical instruments to thrill the invited guests.
