Career Counselling and Guidance

Career guidance and counselling is a comprehensive and developmental program designed to assist students in making and implementing educational and occupational choices. The ultimate aim of this centre is to develop student?s competencies in self-knowledge, educational and occupational exploration.

Objectives

 

1. To help in the total development of the student:

The emphasis on intellectual development through the teaching of subjects alone cannot help in the total development of the students. Therefore this centre looks into the overall growth of the students so that they prove to be an asset to the society apart from personal gain.

2. To help in the proper choice of courses:

Everyone knows that so far our educational system has grown up in a fashion where the courses are chosen generally by the parents. Besides this phenomenon, the courses are allotted to the students based on the marks in their qualifying examinations irrespective of the likes and dislikes of the students concerned. Therefore this centre assists students in choosing the courses that are liked and suitable to them.

3. To help in the proper choice of careers:

Students in general are stranded on finishing their graduation not knowing where to go. We are living in a highly complex and rapidly changing world of work. There are changing requirements in industrial jobs and altered market conditions. This centre enables the students to make the right choice when it comes to choosing the career.

4. To develop readiness for choices and changes to face need challenges:

For the students of higher education the demands of life are likely to be great, in a most different way from the exacting demands of education itself. That is to make the students to understand the need to take the lab to the land. Internship is made part and parcel of the curriculum and the feedback from the students indicate that they are immensely benefitted.

5. To motivate the youth for self-employment:

Considering the magnitude of educated job-seekers flowing into the job market in India every year, it is decided to help the students to look into careers of self-employment.

Lots of programmes, seminars and talks are organised to identify the deserving students to take up self employment and training is given to them on how to proceed about the job of setting up a venture. Experts are invited from the banking sectors for loan assistance and guide them to overcome the teething financial difficulties.
