SAILOR ENTRY
In good old days, a sailor only sailed, the job involved typing of knots, swabbing the decks and polishing the brass. But today’s sailor can be a specialist operator, firing guided missiles and homing torpedoes a sonar technician sounding ocean depth from a hi-tech submarine  a data processing technician at a modern supply centre, a boiler technician overseeing the operation of the ship’s power plant or a member of an aviation crew soaring high above the clouds. Today, Navy’s adventure is not only on the sea but also in the skies above and the depth below. And for this very reason, the Indian Navy has been called the “Three Dimensional Service”. If you have just left school or college and looking  for a career oriented job to pick up, you can join the Indian Navy for an exciting, satisfying career with more security than you would find in most other jobs. You can join Indian Navy as a sailor also because the sailor literally run the navy.

COAST GUARD

During the seventies a pressing need was felt for the protection of our offshore assets. There was also a requirement of ensuring Maritime Laws in our waters. Furthermore, during the early seventies large scale seaborne smuggling was reported.

An Inter-Ministerial Committee called RUSTOMJI COMMITTEE was set up in September 1974 to examine the requirement and type of force that was needed for safeguarding our national interests in the EEZ. This committee recommended to the Government that there was a need for the formation of a force called the COAST GUARD.

With the enactment of the Maritime Zone Act in 1976, the EEZ range was extended upto 200 nm from the coastal line of India, thereby increasing the area to be guarded to approximately 20,00,000 sq km. A Coast Guard Cell was set up in January 1977 to lay the foundation of the Coast Guard which resulted in coming into force of the Coast Guard Act, 1978. The Coast Guard formally came into being on 18 August 1978 with its motto as ‘VYAM  RAKSHAM’, i.e. ‘ WE  PROTECT’.

Can one really plan and prepare for one’s career? Obviously the answer is yes. One should prepare a career plan and become successful. Those who plan have better chances of success.

A job is not a career and this distinction must be kept in mind. Your job is not an end in itself. It is a means to an end, which is your career. Your career belongs to you. Your job belongs to your employer. Career is an integrated life long plan of earning and a job one may hold at a particular time.

Scientific approach is essential in career planning check your aptitude for army, navy and  air force. Then check what have I done for my career search ? Then identify and analyses your needs. What are the possible opportunities in life available to  and how can I cash them. What are the possible  alternatives available during my career plan ?

The most important and difficult factor before choosing a career is to find out the strength and weakness of oneself. Here one has to understand and analyize both the strength and weaknesses in one’s personality traits and environment. Self-assessment regularly motivates a  person to acquire some essential needed in job skills. This may be, adequate communication skill, stress, management techniques general ability of forecasting the work climate of future, meeting the intellectual level, aptitude and attitude requirement, must apt for an organization and profession which matches his strength. This is where one’s skill is tested.

Remember once you set your career, you set a time frame to achieve it. This would help in identifying you role and help you to decide short term and long-term goals and your commitments constantly to review them. This will also act as a reminder to you as to what you have accomplished and how you are progressing. This amounts to progress monitoring of life goals with the action plan.

The success in career will depend upon self-development and self-motivation. Develop basically skill in job, ability to get along with people, urge for self development, quest for excellence, sensible contingency plans, analytical ability, organizing ability capacity for hard and sustained work, leadership qualities, depth of knowledge, vision, imagination, proper decision making curiosity, intelligent, interest  in  happening around, candid, mentally flexible and positive nature.

The  earlier you set your clock on career planning the better you would grow. Leading unplanned career is like a game of football without goal, neither interesting to players nor to the viewers. Your chances of success in planned career are far greater than in an unplanned career.
