Modify the ~/.bashrc file and add this at the end:

cd /directory/of/your/choice

Save and close the file.

Now, every time you open a console session, you will be cd'd to that directory.

Works as expected. Thanks. –  loostro Jun 24 at 15:47

In my case, ~/.bashrc was mapped to /root/.bashrc. I solved the problem by modifying $HOME/.bashrc instead, which maps to /home/{username}/.bashrc.
