A Career Guidance Program (CGP) was organized by the Career Guidance Cell of Dr. NSAM PU College, on 19th March 2021 at the college auditorium. The resource person was Prof. Ronald Pinto, Director, Institute for Individual Development, Mangaluru who has vast experience in this field.
Principal, Dr. Naveen Shetty K in his presidential address said that many students are clueless about their academic interests or ambitions. CGP plays a vital role here, by helping students identify their aptitude and choose an appropriate course to match the same. The students are made aware of the various career options available and this would certainly help them in shaping their future.
Prof. Pinto inspired the young minds by highlighting the ample opportunities and career options they could choose from, with a Science or Commerce background. He explained the relative job prospects and benefits of most of the courses, the procedure to prepare and appear for competitive exams. He also emphasized that career decision being a significant decision in one's life, the course should be selected without any compulsion from parents or peer pressure.
Ms. Geetha, Lecturer in Physics welcomed the gathering; Ms. Nalini Shetty introduced the resource person and Mr. Thrishik of II PU proposed the vote of thanks. All the second-year pre-university students were present for the program.
