Career Disha Nepal successfully conducted an extensive workshop, My Future Pro and interest based psychometric assessment to 55 earthquake victim young students at Phatakshila Higher Secondary School, Sindhupalchowk. The career counseling aimed at introducing various job sectors available locally, markets apprise and occupations to increase students’ confidence to choose career choices depending on their interests.
To know detail information of students’ desire about the future profession, led by CDN expert psychologist Mr. Hari Krishna Dahal and Mrs. Joyti Nepal, an interest based questionnaire was filled. Through the future pro, students got detailed information about themselves as well as their friends. They recognized their own interests, their stronger side, suitable job sectors and leisure activities. The two psychologists thoroughly answered each question raised by the students who were both enthusiastic and curious. The students expressed their gratitude to Career Disha Nepal as they had never engaged in this kind of interactive, reflective and information filled workshop their school life.
