The Hindu career guidance programme in Hubli on Sunday
It is time once again for The Hindu EducationPlus career guidance and counselling programme. This year's event offers an interactive session with experts, career counsellors and admission officials, and more. It is slated to be held at the Biotechnology Auditorium of the BVB College of Engineering and Technology, Vidyanagar, Hubli, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
What is aptitude?
On offer for the first time, is an ‘aptitude and abilities' test. Aptitude tests are designed to tell you what profession, line or direction you are best suited for. We bring you this test, free of cost, in partnership with our assessments partner MeritTrac, a skills assessment firm. The hourlong test is divided into three sections, each of which tests you on a different metric of aptitude. The test will be used to prepare a three-page report which will provide insights that will help you gauge your skills and orientations. This report will be emailed to you within a week's time.
Education counsellors and subject matter experts from engineering and medical fields will participate in an interactive session. It will be an opportunity for you to get your doubts cleared on educational opportunities and scope in various fields. More importantly, for those of you baffled by the professional admissions process, we also provide an interactive session with officials from the Karnataka Examinations Authority and the Consortium of Medical, Engineering and Dental Colleges of Karnataka.
The chief guest for the event, Managing Director of Hubli Electricity Supply Company Pankaj Kumar Pandey, will release our 130-page handbook, Set Your Own Stage. It is a well-researched publication that presents a wide range of expert articles charting trends, providing information and helping students plan their next step. A free copy will be given to all.
B.L. Desai, vice-principal of BVB College of Engineering and Technology; B.S. Madakatti, Medical Director of Karnataka Institute of Medical Sciences (KIMS); Manohar Patil, lecturer; and A.G. Prathab (COMED-K) will be the panellists for the event.
