Universities may be providing student’s knowledge but not all prepare them to face the competitive world later. Nagpur University has now decided to do something about it. It has started a 'career counselling cell' which would prepare the students to fare well in competitive world. The cell, set up in collaboration with University Grants Commission (UGC), was formally announced in March this year. It was kicked off with a three-day session for seven science departments on Tuesday, 7th August, 2012. First session was held at physics department for students of physics, chemistry, mathematics and statistics.
The other session for zoology, botany and electronics students is being held in the botany department. Sanjay Dhoble, associate professor of physics and the cell coordinator told TOI that the three-day counselling sessions would equip students in skills right from preparing bio-data to facing interviews. It would also inform them about different fields and jobs they can apply for after completing studies. "Our students are not even aware of the prospects and fields open to them. They have not heard of magazines like Current Science that carry job advertisements. They also lack communication skills. We are holding the counselling sessions at the beginning of the term to give them enough opportunity to build their personality," he said.
Sanjay Raghatate from Oxford Speakers Academy, who is also guiding the students, said he would be preparing them in interpersonal communication, group discussion for national and international jobs, ego-change and management, manners and etiquettes. "We need to prepare the students not just in cerebral skills but also the salability of the personality. We would ensure they have enough confidence to carry themselves well before the interviewing committee and peers attending the interview," he said. K.C. Deshmukh, dean of science faculty, S. V. Moharil, head of physics department, Prof Anil Hirekhan, deputy registrar development, K. S. Bharti, director internal quality assurance, Alka Chaturvedi, head of botany department, K. H. Makde, former head of botany department, T. Srinavsu and N. N. Makde were also present for the inaugural session.
