Experts will answer queries of students, parents
Students who have completed the pre-university course and class 12 are at a crucial juncture as they have to make the right choice of course for further studies, which will determine their careers too. The Hindu EducationPlus is organising its annual career counselling and guidance session here to enlighten students about various professional and other courses available.
In its fourth edition in Davangere, apart from leading academics from engineering, medical and agricultural fields, officials from the Karnataka Examinations Authority (KEA) will be there to explain about the online counselling procedure. All these experts will also be available to answer the whole range of queries from students during the interactive session.
The career guidance programme will be inaugurated by Vice-Chancellor of Davangere University S. Indumathi. B.O. Mallikarjun, agronomist from Taralabalu Krishi Vigyan Kendra, will tell students about the opportunities in the field of agriculture, and Shanmukhappa from BIET College will tell about different disciplines in engineering. G.C. Niranjan, CET co-ordinator, and Arham Faraaz, general education expert, will also be there to guide the students.
Students participating in the counselling session will be given a free copy each of this year’s handbook titled ‘The Great Leap’, a well-researched publication on emerging careers and courses.
The title sponsor for the event is State Bank of India, while associate sponsors are Dr. T. Thimmiah Institute of Technology, Institute of Chartered Accountants of India, Nitte Meenakshi Institute of Technology, Sambhram Institute of Technology, Padmashree Group of Institutions, Rajarajeswari Medical College and Hospital, Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences, Karnataka, and Bearys Institute of Technology.
The counselling session will be held on the premises of Bapuji Education Association, which is the venue sponsor.
The pre-counselling career guidance session will be held in the auditorium of AVK College for Women, PJ Extension, on May 26 from 10 a.m.
Students of classes 10, 11, 12 and PU and their parents are invited. Students are requested to arrive 30 minutes before the commencement of the session to register their names.
If any of the questions remain unanswered during the sessions owing to paucity of time, they can be sent through email to firstname.lastname@example.org. They will be answered by the subject expert concerned.
