Students grasped the approach to pursue careers in IT / ITES sectors at the end of a conference at Cauvery College for Women here on Thursday.

Titled OSREADY (Open Source Ready Conference), the day-long event, oriented students on what is expected of them before they take up employment.

Kumaran Mani, Chief Executive Officer, 10{+t}{+h}Planet, Chennai, familiarised the participating students with contents of a book titled ‘how to get the first job’, and the portalwww.firstplanet.incontaining e-learning inputs to nurture innovations and entrepreneurship.

The book was released by the College Principal S. Sujatha in the presence of S.P. Mohan, HR Trainer and State president of Tamil Nadu Youth Exnora.

Mr. Kumaran said the job portal where thousands of smaller IT/ ITES companies post their advertisements for free will be of immense utility to students, adding that it also guides them to prepare good resumes. Examples of successful women entrepreneurs were narrated to motivate the students as they could understand how working from home also amounts to self-employment and entrepreneurship, he said.
