With the KCSE results now out, many of the form four leavers are busy planning on what to do.

Those who passed extremely well want to be doctors, engineers, pilots, lawyers, among other professionals. At least those ones have been helped by their grades to choose their appropriate career path.

However, some of them have still fallen to the "syndrome"...

There are also those who passed but not with high grades to guarantee them placement in the mentioned careers. Most of them have fallen to the "syndrome".

The "syndrome" I am talking about is the inability to know what they want. These guys need someone to guide them on choosing the correct career path according to their strengths, and not to fall for any career just because of pressure.

Peer pressure

Most fourth form leavers are influenced by their peers on the kind of training to undertake. A case in point is the CPA course which has been a fertile hunting ground for middle level colleges. Very many students nowadays, once they finish their form four exams, rush into doing CPA just because their friends are doing it. This is not to mean that CPA is a bad course, in fact many need to do it as accountants are needed all over the world.

However my question is, why should you rush to do a CPA course, yet you feel that your heart is in medicine, or journalism, or maybe engineering?

One thing people have to realize is that CPA is a professional course.

Therefore, unless you are in the accountancy profession or finance, you are just overloading your head with unnecessary stuff.

For instance, why should a doctor want to be an accountant?

FOOD FOR THOUGHT: You need to get your priorities right.
