The Department of Extension and Career Guidance may conduct career orientation programmes and Assessment Tests for final year undergraduate and post graduate students. These programmes vary from 2-4 days. Normally the following topics are covered during our orientation sessions viz., current career options for graduates, skill based c.v. preparation, facing stress based Interviews, skill set demands for ITES and retail marketing, career planning for IT graduates, aptitude tests, effective participation in Group Discussion, motivation, creativity, counseling skills for Placement Officers, competitive exams for undergraduates, written and oral communication games, remedial English exercises, preparing for civil service exams, personality and career choice, stress management and entrepreneurship. It also supports its affiliated colleges to conduct model aptitude tests for MBAs and MCAs.
Occasionally the Dept. accepts invitations from other Universities and colleges and arrange these programmes. The Dept. requires minimum of two weeks notice to conduct such programmes. Specific career guidance programmes are also conducted for the Placement Officers of the affiliated colleges twice in a year. Organising large scale career fairs is our regular feature. Colleges interested to arrange such fairs can contact us for technical assistance. Requests in this regard may be sent to the Department.
E-Learning Centre has been established to produce and launch training programmes for Placement Officers in higher education institutions. The Department has already established professional contacts with LMS Companies, CEC-New Delhi and content creation companies and conducted four E-learning workshops. Teachers interested to obtain training in instructional technology designs, use of LMS, content creation, on-line testing may contact the Department of Extension and Career Guidance.
