Results: Personality and preferences
The primary aim of this survey was to provide valuable guidance to young girls regarding their career choices. By employing a career counseling questionnaire, participants received personalized advice on whether the academician, corporate, or entrepreneurial path aligned with their strengths and interests. The findings uncovered a compelling trend, with a substantial majority (82.9%) of the girls demonstrating traits associated with entrepreneurship. In contrast, 14.3% exhibited characteristics indicative of being corporate team players, while a minority (5.7%) displayed qualities typically associated with pursuing a career as an academician.

Limitations of the Survey
It is important to acknowledge the limitations of the above primary survey. Firstly, the sample size of 35 respondents may not fully represent the diversity and variations within the larger population of young women aged 18-22. The findings may not be generalizable to a broader context. Additionally, the survey relied on self-reporting, which is subject to individual interpretation and bias. The response options provided in the survey might have limited the participants’ ability to express their true perspectives fully. Furthermore, the survey did not account for cultural or socio-economic factors that could influence personality and preference assessments. These limitations highlight the need for further research with larger and more diverse samples to obtain more comprehensive and accurate insights.
