That we have been working to create a lab that would test all children from the age of five to eighty-five for a sufficient number of attempts to generate a database of the individuals on these parameters: ISPVD: Interest, Skill, Personality, Value system, and differentiating acumen, We have begun to think on solving it using technology. Collaboration to see this happen is beginning with IITs.
Artificial intelligence, Machine Learning tools are being attempted to use these huge data sets for coming to a reasonable natural choice or conclusion for each individual. Excellence in the work field and its spread is a must for the Indian sub-continent to utilize the demographic dividend. The Govt. Agencies and private players should join to take up this task to guide young minds and help in planning human labour problem of the country. There are around 12000+ career options and we have reduced this to only 12 career roots or Career Trees, published in Oct 2019, in our first book ” Perspectives on Higher Education of India: developing an integrated Model” by Jha, Vardhan and Mahto (JVM) from Amity University Jharkhand.
Employment and work opportunities will impact the Economy only if all get the opportunities to contribute. Where will they contribute depends on the space given to them to improve their capabilities. District wise Skill Market Hub concept with the integration of Training/Education, Production House and Market with Industry tie-up can solve the problem of this country and retail the regional skills and still fulfil all its aspirations of life. This Skill Market Economy model is also being discussed in the Academic circles to gather support and be experimented as a pilot project in Jharkhand.
The mismatch between Skill sets of individuals and the career path taken by him/her remains the basic most important factor in productivity, efficiency and ultimate economy of any Industry or a state or nation. Any progressive country, therefore, must understand the links, requirements, and methodologies of reducing this gap. But the actual research is badly lacking on Skill per se.
The Research is on under the banner of JEET with LifeTime Career & Research Lab. We have identified that if individuals are tested in the laboratory (Career LAb) for a relatively long period in terms of a logical scientific way on INTEREST, SKILL, VALUE- SYSTEM, PERSONALITY and DIFFERENTIATING ACUMEN (GOD’sGIFT), we can identify which area would they excel and how they should choose that root out of 12 roots in a CAREER TREE designed for all possible career options on the globe. Can we join to make it happen on the ground.
Capability-building stands tall as Task for each individual especially early in life and later at every stage of life for want of progress and excellence and not many are able to reach its maximum level owing to our average or low aiming culture. The dissatisfaction because of under-development is the root cause of evils in the life of individual, family, society and existence (Nature). This realization sometimes comes at a time when a lot is lost and one finds himself in a corner from where many possibilities are beyond reach. Naturally, therefore suffering begins, definitely impacting everyone and every aspect of life including the next generation. This irreplaceable pathway being chosen once is trodden by the majority in our country unconsciously leading to all kinds of frustrations, depressions, family rifts, fights, confusions, legal battles, opportunist’s paradise, corruption, muscle struggle, murder, and whatnot. THIS IS THE TRAP WHERE WE ARE STRUCK TODAY WITH NO OR LIMITED HEADWAY. We need to ponder:
Why are we trapped?
What are the options not to get into this trap?
Who can take us out?
How is that possible? Is this possible?
When should that be attempted?
Right and rightly timed Education, Radical cultural and social revolution, understanding Human existence, Human Values, and mutual harmony by one and all through a universally accepted system may give us some ray of hope. Only those who are not in this self-generated or forced cyclonic trap-cone can see the trouble. Ignited and enlightened Individuals, groups and system-oriented moves only may find the right ways.
Values and their importance can not be over-emphasized. This is the only opportune window and the moment has to be seized now. Deep introspection at every level and planned intervention may bring results. JEET has come up with a standard way of making each one excel and contribute to universal development with a deep sense of satisfaction based on the value system. We need to experiment on our model and need the support of the Govt and the like-minded in making this a reality. All are welcome.
Every human being is destined to excel, but reality is different. What makes this peak performance of majority fall off the track. Growing eco-system essentially lacks, certain very very important ingredients, so very essential for excellence, specially in India. Some problems are put put below to fathom deeper for a solution.
- Good & Healthy Childhood- depends on family background & their priorities apart from the individual’s instincts which are inherent and hidden.
- Society where he grows and interacts with his peer group fellows and actually learns. The personality that comes out is a mixed product with no original self sense. Individuality & true self does not take root most often.
- Good and Balanced Education system- provided by parents & Govt system prevailing and the financial health of parents
- Encouragement to the Child for following unbiased, balanced & rational path and still be totally free to apply his originality & creativity. Child needs love and can contribute only when he feels loved and encouraged like that from a real guru.
- False propaganda, positioning of some irrelevant thoughts, biases of religion, sects, regions, languages, cultures dominate in early nurturing period.
- A system to observe the growth pattern of the child and shape their career along that path so badly required for excellence.
- What time does a child visualise the actual contours of future career ahead of him?
- What are those contours?
- Who observes them first?
- Who notes them?
- Who applies them in the real life in real sense?
GAP EXISTS. This is to be done scientifically else the capabilities and intellect will only be utilised for basic survival and not for excellence. We need Career & Skill Research Lab.
While discussing and understanding of aspects of Career I was extremely happy to see a relation like Teach for Teachers, Seek for Seekers and the like, and interpret Career for Care or Caring. It has a deep hidden meaning and this article brings a new interpretation and point of view of the hidden design of GOD. GOD has created us all as a creator and left the choice of career to us. The moment one tries to understand the meaning of life and its purpose, the imprint is visualised. We are here to care about our fellow beings, share with them the opportunities, resources, acquired knowledge, skills, even wealth and the like. We, therefore, have to choose a direction of Career where we are at out Best and that has to be the direction of passion, no expectation, enjoyment of giving, caring, sharing, being your real self. The differences designed by the creator has to be appreciated and linked with its usefulness using our wisdom rather than being rebuked or put down. The universal leadership demands togetherness and that also comes from our scriptures where the whole world is one family. Yoga has the same essence of Unity. But unless we as individuals do not keep ourselves at our best version, this unity is not possible.
Career Lab has this deep sense of enquiry to understand each individual for a longer time through tests and analyse the data for a longer period to come to a sufficient level of confidence to prescribe Career Passport with all details of the path to be followed. All will have to be tested for their passion and make THE BEST impact on their own lives along with all others directly or indirectly.
- Everyone on earth sees objects around him/her place of interaction or movement, observes people, interacts with so many different people with varying degree of appreciation, experiences situations in all walks of life, makes decisions and all these directly or indirectly influence our future.
- Every problem is unique but there are so many different possibilities of solving it.
- Life is full of opportunities and possibilities at all its stages. It would be nice if most possibilities or answers to life problems can be put before the life actors namely human beings, the path or journey can be smoothened and clearly understood.
- It is precisely with this aim that this article is being written that we as conscious beings should be inspired by myriad possibilities that nature has already put before us. All we require is the following:
- Creative Vision
- Organised thought
- Controlled attention
Linking the possibilities with the dots created through our laboratory tests one is expected to have a clear way forward as far as his /her Career is concerned. All above points are ways of turning inward, looking at ourselves closely, as to what will give us the best blissful moments and how consistently the same can be followed for longer period of existence.
This inspiration needs the comprehensive perception of our persona, skill sets, value system and our response to these, with deep understanding, will guide us devote our lives to our own chosen career path.
Career Contours are usually visible at an early age but we neglect them with the concept that the things (thought, actions, and related initial habits ) will change with maturity. The question or the answer to this date and year is only approximate and no care is given at the time required. It either subsides because of social, parental or peer pressure, but this instinct is well hidden at our conscious or subconscious level. Can we record it and note it for the future. This is possible with the involvement of the full family and school teachers, maids, playmates and documented in some place of individual Career Library data. This data set collection is very very important and has to be accurate and be recorded continuously putting a close watch or undergoing a laboratory test put at all points of contact & interaction especially at the first age code level namely from 5 to 15 years of age.
We can then analyze the monthly or annual data trends and draw out a contour. The trend is going to be obviously clear. It is just not the IQ, EQ or SQ test, but a whole lot of activities that the child does will bring out his career bend. We need to find correlated activities in a child and data from a group of children of the same age group and preferably from the same environment and affluence will make sense to draw out inferences. This is just not possible to do this by parents or teachers or by mentors or classmates alone. Expert Laboratory tests on a regular basis are to be taken. Hence the concept of the Lab. Visible contours of a gamut of behaviors like,
- Speaking: Timing, throw of words, toner, quality, sound pattern, Arguing
- Singing: rhythm, melody, catching sur and Taal,
- Playing: type of game, group or individualistic,
- Dancing: pattern, grasp,
- Media Impact:
- Technology impact:
- Parenting impact:
- Teaching: Theory or practical
- Thinking: Scientific or logical or interpreting
- Spiritual Bend
- Mixing in the group, which age group, quick or slow teammates etc….
We need to study all these and infinitely many aspects and dimensions of life that influences life. We need to study:
- Buddhi- Intellect
- Chitta-Consciousness etc….
at all levels and only then we prescribe career suggestions. THIS IS NOT POSSIBLE WITHOUT A DETAILED RESEARCH AND THE SAME IS NOT DONE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD SO FAR. This is one of its kind which requires support from all corners. This is the right time to attempt to study human beings in terms of all possible dimensions and use the data to group them under one category of Career Map where he fits best.
In the scientific age that we are in, we planned to institutionalise the concept of choosing one career path rather than criss crossing and wondering what one would do in life for living. The concept of doing something should have a one to one mapping with what one is passionate about. The tests are designed to test all in this lab and help you choose your career, to We believe that life is not about doing a job, earning money and enjoying. It is essentially about understanding ourselves, understanding and appreciating the environment we live in and developing ourselves in the direction the GOD has designed us. We do understand that we all have our basic characteristic self-instinct, very different and unique which defines us. Career or life should be lived along our strengths. We will make you all live THE life you all deserve, where you can excel, enjoy, contribute significantly, create new world through visualisation and commitment. Some parameters where we would like to study individuals in order to prescribe the best path through the scientifically designed tests in our Career Lab are below:
- Career Interest: Passion, zeal, inner commitment and bend, likes and dislikes, happiness domain, natural inclination etc…
- Career Skills: commensurate to the strength and Gaps, Futuristic and predictable requirements for best performance, degrees and qualifications required for the chosen career path
- Career Personality: An individual has to choose a career based on the type of person he is. A thorough test will bring out one’s real type. We would scientifically and statistically correlate the data over a significant period of time to come to real conclusions to make clear suggestions.
- Career Value system: An important ingredient in one’s life is the set of values he is committed to. It is a reflection of society, education, family background, friend circle, language, religion, sex, caste and his self image, individuality and belief system. These matter while one chooses his career.
