A day long interactive session 'Career
Vision-2018' was organized at Khalsa College for Women where learned
professionals from different departments streams and arenas disseminated and
assimilated their knowledge to orientate students towards the world of work.
The seminar commenced with the felicitation of
the Chief Guest Khalsa College Governing Council Honorary Secretary Rajinder
Mohan Singh Chhina who in his inaugural address highlighted that informed
career choices help students make smart and correct decisions that lead to
success in life. He advised the students to be very attentive and to ask
questions related to their career plans & make the best use of the seminar.
He added that programs like these promote sharing of multiple views of knowledge
creation and are the critical means whereby the quality of academic learning,
discovery and engagement can be enhanced, broadened and enlivened.
KCW Principal Dr. Manpreet Kaur while
welcoming the students from district's leading institutions and rural schools/colleges
said that the aim of this career guidance workshop is not only to guide
students on choice of subjects and streams and provide suitable career choices
but also help students become self- aware about their strengths and weaknesses.
She emphasized that relevant information to the students at the right time of
the development cycle helps them move from crystallization of career choices to
specification and implementation.
More than 1200 students from 20 different schools participated
and benefitted from the seminar which helped them relate occupational choices
with interest, aptitude and personal choices and provided an overview of the
importance of each for success in any field.
The session became interactive
towards the end with students putting forward their queries in relation to
their career plans and were triggered to develop the process of self-analysis
and self-motivation amongst themselves.
The seminar coordinator Mr. Manjeet Singh Gill along with
Principal honored some outstanding students during the prize distribution
function to conclude the seminar.
