The annual career counselling sessions of The Hindu EducationPlus will be held across seven cities in Karnataka, beginning with Bangalore on May 15 and then in Mysore, Shimoga, Udupi, Davangere, Hubli and Gulbarga.

Apart from demystifying the admission process to engineering, medical and dental colleges as part of the Common Entrance Test (CET) and Consortium of Medical, Engineering and Dental Colleges of Karnataka (COMED-K) examination, The Hindu EducationPlus career counselling sessions will also host interactive sessions, where an expert panel will answer queries from students to help them make the right career choice.

During the interactive session, experts from engineering, medical and dental colleges will guide the students through a maze of career options. The events will also feature expert guidance on soft skills and educational loans. A career guidance session for the benefit of students seeking a career outside engineering, medical and dental will also be held at all venues. In addition, the students will take home a free copy of Charting Your Career, a well-researched publication that presents a wide range of expert articles charting trends, providing information and helping students plan the next step after graduation.

The 120-page handbook offers guidance on career options ranging from pure mathematics and space engineering to animation and design.
