A great number of youth in Pakistan suffers from the dilemma of choosing between passion and profession. Their education does not prepare them for this. According to a study, 60% Pakistani students throughout their educational career do not know what exactly they should go for. 15% to 20% somehow know but financial barriers and poor guidelines hinder them from going along their passions. Remaining 10% to 15%, mostly of the privileged backgrounds, succeed in following their passions.
To ensure this for others, first of all parents should encourage their children. Career counseling departments must be established at schools and colleges. Last but not the least; Government should play its role by working as a bridge between educational institutions and the job industry.
