Career counseling and placement

The Course and curricular inputs are important for the prospective students. Relevant information on courses and combinations on offer with freedom of choice is generally available and counseling is informally given as a support service. The conventional information system comprises a copy of prospectus that contains a list of courses and combinations, entry rules, fee structure, examination schedule etc. in a routine repetitive manner year after year. But now with the change in scenario, not only the academic content and its rules have become oriented towards the market needs but one has also to address social disparities and career opportunities that education has to offer the conventional information system is now to be supplemented with active guidance and information technology that is fast replacing the print media with a system that can quickly retrieve information details for the benefit of all concerned. In addition, vocational guidance and campus based interviews are attempted by the efforts of the College Head of the Department and alumnus.

The Career Counseling and Placement cell has been set up in the college for the benefit of the students. The Cell’s primary objective is to provide the much needed life skills to students and help them to find a job placement. The Cell functions under the direct supervision of the Principal of the College, and all head of the Departments are its members.
