Quiz a team of experts at Our Career Guidance Programme

It is time once again for The Hindu Career Guidance and Counselling programme. In your city, on May 15, this time's event offers an interactive session with experts, career counsellors, and admission officials, and more.

The event is slated to be held at the Library Hall of DVS Composite PU College here on May 15 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

What's aptitude?

On offer for the first time, is an “Aptitude and Abilities” test.

A concept less understood, aptitude tests are designed to tell you what profession, line, or direction in career 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 hour-long test is divided into three sections, each of which tests you on a different metric of aptitude.

Together, this test is used to prepare for you 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.

Then, of course, there's the staple — an interactive session for students and parents to talk to experts from professional fields, admission officials from the Karnataka Examinations Authority, and the Consortium of Medical, Engineering and Dental college of Karnataka (COMED-K).

Vice-Chancellor of Kuvempu University S.A. Bari is the chief guest for the event. Dr. Rajeev who will represent the COMED-K will provide information on the process of admission.

An expert from CET will interact with the students.

He will release our 130-page career handbook, Set Your Own Stage, a well-researched publication that presents a wide range of expert articles charting trends, providing information, and helping students plan their next step after graduation.

This book will be given free of cost to all attendees.

On our expert panel for the interactive sessions are Dr. S.N. Jagadeesha, Professor and Head of Department of Computer Science, Jawaharlal Nehru National College of Engineering, will speak on the career opportunities in the field of engineering. Dr. K.S. Gangadhara, Principal and Head of Department of Ear, Nose and Throat, Shimoga Institute of Medical Sciences will interact with students interested to opt for a career in the medicine and related fields while Prof. N. Diwakar Rao, Director, Edurite Training Academy will guide the students on the preparations to be made to secure a career that is rewarding.
