A large number of students for lack of information and guidance usually face countless challenges while applying for courses to study after secondary school. This is because, students are not well equipped with basic skills in course selection early enough. In fact, majority of students are not able to make informed course choices even after completing secondary education due to lack of information and proper guidance while still at their formative years. Because of this career choice inability, many students keep hoping from one course to another trying to find their career paths. Career satisfaction begins at the Course Selection Stage and if done properly, students are likely to lead a productive and fulfilling career life after their postsecondary education. Coursebook provides students with clear information and course guidance to help them plan for and choose the right courses in pursuit of their postsecondary education, a key education level that empowers students with employability and entrepreneurial skills.
