Garware Institute of Career Education and Development, Mumbai University, Kalina Campus has been organizing Career Guidance and Counseling Seminars for our college year after year. These sessions are valuable and this year too we were fortunate to have with us the Director of the Garware Institute of Career Education and Development Dr. Keyurkumar Nayak and Ms. Shubhra Nayak, faculty at the GICED as resource persons for the session.
Dr. Nayak spoke about careers in information technology. He explained how B.Com. students can do courses in computer software and hardware and very easily blend into the IT industry. Further he spoke about careers in website designing, business opportunities in instagram, and other social media. He said we could conduct training programmes, tutorials and create interesting content that would attract many viewers. The business model for online business was clearly explained.
Dr. Keyurkumar Nayak further spoke about interesting careers in travel and tourism. Those who love traveling and enjoy history should definitely think about a career in travel and tourism. There are training courses available for travel and tourism and this career is not only exciting but also lucrative.
New emerging careers in media, advertising and entertainment, digital media and how to excel in this field was clearly explained.
Professional courses like C.A, C.S, C.M.A were mentioned and the BFSI options too were explained.
The students listened with rapt attention. They had several questions to ask, and both the resource persons gave answers to all the questions asked by the students.
Ms. Shubhra Nayak explained the need and importance of training and learning a skill to move ahead in a career. She explained that it is not enough to have a degree. One should have a craft, skill or profession that one must follow. It is important to work for several years and learn and master the craft before one moves ahead on the career track. Learning on-the-job is very important.
Both the resource persons had new and interesting information to share. This Career Guidance and Counseling Session was useful to the students.
Placement Cell Chairperson of the college Assoc. Prof. Dr. Lata Krishnan thanked the resource persons for the excellent session.
