Be more outgoing

Dear Sir,
My daughter is studying BBM in the IV semester. She is very much interested in doing MBA in Aviation Management. Does this course have scope in our country? How are the job opportunities for those who do this course? Kindly suggest some of the best institutes for MBA in Aviation. My daughter is not a very outgoing person. But she is passionate about working for airlines. Will this be a wrong decision? Kindly give your suggestion.
A Parent

Dear Parent
The aviation industry in our country is expanding steadily, and many management professionals will find rewarding careers.  Also, with globalisation and easy travel, she need not restrict her employment to India, since many international aviators will also be offering employment.  However, it is important that she becomes more outgoing and social, since her prime function will be to deal with people.  Encourage her to groom her personality, socialise more, improve communication skills etc.

Some of the reputed institutions offering Masters in Aviation Management are Faculty of Management Studies, Delhi University, University of Petroleum Delhi (, and Tata Institute of Social Sciences ( If interested she can also consider an MBA in International Relations, which is offered by numerous Universities all over the country.  Also, it may be to her advantage if she takes up an entry level job in an aviation industry after her graduation, get a feel of the field, and then decide upon her higher studies.  People who take admission in MBA after work experience benefit most from the Masters degree.

Dear Sir,
I am studying in class XII and am interested in criminology. I want to know whether criminal psychology and criminology are the same. I am interested  to know more about the said courses. Also, kindly suggest colleges/universities offering these courses at the undergraduate level.

Dear Sunaina,
Criminology and criminal psychology are very closely related to each other.  However, the employment opportunities at present in India in this field are very limited, since almost all criminal investigation work is done through government agencies. Even private security services have strict restrictions on investigation or related work. Though there are a few universities offering degree or PG courses in criminology, they are generally taken up by aspiring or working government officials. Your best chances are if you can complete your graduation in any field and crack the C-SAT of UPSC to get into the IPS, or apply through UPSC/SSC for CBI posts such as Deputy Superintendent or Inspectors. Once selected you will have a stable career and will be able to do criminal investigation work. Be aware that these are highly competitive exams and lakhs of people apply for the few posts that are available every year.

Dear Sir,
I have completed my engineering in Electronics and Communication with an aggregate of 74% in 2013. I had  job offers from various IT companies, but my parents wanted me to do a govt job. So I gave up that opportunity and started full time preparation for government jobs. But each time, I missed qualifying by a few marks. It has been almost two years since I graduated (2013). Now, I have realised that I made a huge mistake. Is there still any chance for me to go back into IT or core fields? Or I should do some course then try for a job? Or Should I get coaching for government jobs and attempt exams? Please help me.

Dear XYZ,
Since you have been preparing and appearing for government jobs for two years by full-time study, you will be the best judge whether it is worth continuing your efforts and what your chances are of succeeding in subsequent attempts. 

On the other hand, there is always the alternative of getting into the private sector.  At this juncture instead of studying further, you should identify your aptitude, personality traits, interest and strengths, and match them to the career you wish to take up.  You should ensure that you are getting into a field where your interest matches your abilities.
If you are unable to do this exercise by yourself, you can do so through an Aptitude Test conducted by various organizations such as YoungBuzz, Promise Foundation, Manasa, Banjara Academy (Ph: 23330200 23535766) etc.
