Career in Library and information Science role in our life and the choice of a career is one of the most critical decisions of our lives. It shapes our future and determines our lifestyle. Due to multiplicity of choices, selecting a career is not an easy decision today. It is estimated that every year lakhs of educated job seekers pass out from schools and colleges. Due to inadequate knowledge and unrealistic professional aspirations, a large percentage of them seek traditional careers such as civil services, engineering, medicine, education defense services etc., where there are limited options. And there are hundreds of alternative career options for those who are made aware of their aptitudes and strengths, and provided the appropriate information.
