Career Guidance Workshop
Grade 9 and 10
A career planning and guidance workshop was conducted for the students of grade IX & X by Dr. Divya Garg, an eminent career counsellor and micro biologist. The programme gave the students an insight into the importance of choosing one’s career aptly and wisely. Ms. Varindar Kaur warmly welcomed the resource person and introduced her to the students.
The children were introduced to the world of career options and opportunities accessible to them. It was also a platform to identify the kind of personality they possess from ‘out-going/private, leading/following, tweaky /innovating or risk taking/conventional’ as each individual is unique and so will be the career to be chosen. The programme also helped to explore the immense possibilities of different careers varying from Business, Engineering, Technology & Mathematics, Arts, Science & Healthcare, Public Affairs, etc. In order to analyse the aptitude and preference towards their career, handouts were given away and some of the responses given by the children were interpreted. The steps to be taken to achieve the same were explained by the resource person too.
“It was clear that if we fail to take proper choice and decision today, we will end up spoiling our career and life indeed. The session helped me tremendously as it revealed the two specific fields which could be taken up as my career” said Yashaswini of Grade IX. Many of the doubts and concerns raised by the students were clarified during the interactive session.
“This programme has helped me decide my career and is the very first step towards what I want to become” remarked Aryan Puranik of Grade X. Ms. Pushpalatha S. thanked the resource person for sharing the vision of career building and immensely motivating the students.
