Careers: Opportunities and Challenges for Young People.

What have you decided to become once you're done with your studies? A doctor? An engineer? A corporate manager?

Do you think the studies you have done/are doing is preparing you well for the current, highly competitive job market?

Do you have the necessary skills that are needed to become a doctor or an engineer? Not just the bookish knowledge, but the attitude and the competencies?

Something to ponder about - uh?

The British Council has just launched its second Dialogue Forum's survey. This time we are talking about "Careers." Yes, we're discussing all the questions that are mentioned above.

We want to know what you have to say. Let us know your career choices by participating in our online survey on "Careers" at: .

Remember: NOW is the time for you to sit and seriously think about your Careers. The job market out there is quite tough and with the Great Recession hovering us, job searching has become very candidate's nightmare.


  1. hmm....intresting.

    Can the survey be taken by someone who is already on job?

  2. Hello,

    Sure, the survey can be taken by any one, irrespective of their employment status.

    Please spread a word around about this survey.

  3. Thank you so much for your reply Mariam.

    The most important thing which I am looking forward is how and where the British Council will use this survey?

    As I read : The Young Parliamentarians Forum intends to collate recommendations from these dialogue forums as a “policy document” to be presented to the Parliament.

    It means that the British Council will take our voices to the higher authorities?


  4. Hello,

    The British Council will collate all the suggestions, recommendations in a report form. The report will then be presented by the Youth Parliamentarian Forum (YPF) to the higher authorities at the policy making level.

    The British Council is responsible to take your voices to the higher authorities.
