Your weekly EducationPlus supplement is carrying a choice pick of articles that are featured in our annual career handbook, ‘Shape Your Career'. This well-researched compilation, which comprises 37 articles written by experts in different fields, will be given free of cost to all those who attend our career counselling sessions in 14 cities, from May 27 to June 10, across the State.
In these pages, we offer you a wide variety of articles, analysis and news you can use. As for the more popular subjects – engineering, medicine and the pure sciences – our experts have packed each article with advice on career paths, areas of specialisation and scholarship options, and have chalked out a road map to make the most of your chosen field.
Our ‘choice pick' of articles on ‘alternative careers' includes the less-talked-about social sciences, defence and the fine arts. Looking beyond, we also offer you guidance on the skill sets and activities that could enrich you once you have made your choice. What must you bear in mind while selecting a college? Does volunteering with the NCC and NSS enrich you, and can learning a foreign language help your career? These pages are packed with information that we hope will help you make an informed choice.
