The College has launched the Career Counseling cell for the benefit of the students in 2004. The Cell’s primary objective is to provide the life skills to students and make them efficient to cope with the competitive job market. The Cell’s activities were initiated by the Dr. ManuranjanPandit, Principal of the college. This conception is carried forward by Dr.Bubul Kumar Saikia, Mr. RajenDutta, Dr.SurajitBhuyan, Mrs.BinitaHazarika, Mr. Durlav Raj Taid, and faculties of different departments of the college.
To keep pace with the present stiff competition, the cell has undertaken several measures like organizing seminars, mock interviews, soft skills, communicative English, phonetic exercises, personality development, and leadership skills to the students. These programs are conducted by distinguished personalities in the field. The college has integrated the Career Counseling with the reputed career counselors. The Cell offers guidance in higher education and other career opportunities apart from conducting usual counseling.
Periodic interactions with professional career counselors, government as well as public sector officials are organized to provide opportunities for exchange of ideas and experts’ experiences in their respective fields. Students are encouraged to talk about their career-ambition, and the challenges they may face, as well as understanding the various emerging trends of job opportunities through this platform. We are also proud to state that the outgoing students are extending their support to this cell, and have already founded an alumni forum to guide the juniors in different aspects of career opportunities.
The alumni association conducts friendly interactive sessions, where students are given practical tips on various issues considered essential for their career enhancement. From 2009 onwards this cell has been organizing rigorous one to one counseling to students in close support of skilled career counselors at free of cost. In addition to this frequent mock interviews and personality development classes are conducted to familiarize the students with a real interview process. Wherever possible free study material are also provided to the students.
This cell caters students with updated informations regarding career from various sources, such as, employment news, Online portals,magazines etc.
