Career Guidance

2019-20

Career Guidance Cell

The Career Guidance cell provides relevant academic and career information to enable students to make informed decisions along the way.  Our focus is to provide learning/training opportunities in the areas of academics, career and to prepare students to meet their future challenges. Specific inputs are given to the students regarding career choices mapped and aligned to their passion/interests which would help the students to fulfil their career goals and serve as the bridge between their college experience and employment or graduate school, helping them apply what they have learned.

Why it is important for a child?

Choosing the right career is one of the most crucial decisions in a student’s life. Globalization along with rapid advances in technology have thrown open a plethora of new career options to the youth. This reality has created the need for career guidance to be an integral part of the education system. Most students choose careers based on their marks obtained and not on what they are passionate about.

Career Guidance & Counselling develops a student’s competency in self-knowledge, educational and occupational exploration and career planning. Specific inputs are given to the students regarding career choices mapped and aligned with their passion/interests. Career Counselling helps the students to fulfil their career goals and serve as the bridge between their college experience and employment or graduate school, helping them apply what they have learned.
