We remember the era in which career path was decided by our neighbors, friends and relatives. Right choosing way? Not at all. We have seen younger kids talking about becoming scientists, pilots and many more but, once grown up they just stop dreaming and settle down into comfortable career path. Well, this is a turning point of life and it has to be taken very seriously, as career decision decides the entire life. Again we cannot forget the stereotypical path of either doctor or engineer, In past few years before, entire population was running behind either medical or engineering field without even knowing own likes. Thankfully gone are those days of running behind trend. Today kids have become smarter enough to choose their own paths. But to choose the one, they need to be aware about the various options. Many international schools are trying their own ways to spread awareness. Some of these ways are as follows. All the schools if combinely follow the steps regularly, we hope to shape the young minds well.

We live in the world but students get less exposure to the real world. Mostly world is filtered by parents. To know and understand the real world, some schools show the world working. Different observation assignments are conducted to teach the different fields.
- Quality Expert Talk:
Nothing is more interesting then examples. Different experts from various real world fields are called upon to interact students. Like, a film making crew recently visited 5th graders students in one of the international school. The students got the glimpse of the movie making through experts.
Practical education is the best way to learn anything. Actually gaining experience under the experts and working with them leads to better understanding of the world fields. Today, Internships arrangements is main focus. Students are make to learn as an intern in different fields. Recently, one of the international school students actually developed their own product and branding, grade 8 students got an experience of their product's selling as well.

World is full of vast opportunities, the important step is to go and search out. Career exhibitions are the best way to do so. Numerous fields introduction is explained in such exhibition. Most of the international schools conduct such exhibition. The point is to choose the one which connects to ones passion.
