Day-2 of Career Counselling Seminar for Commerce students
Avenues Galore in the field of commerce- counselling session in DPS Ranchi
Today when there is a mad rush to get enrolled in Engineering and Medical colleges Delhi Public School, Ranchi organised a counselling session for its students to give them an extensive idea on career alternative in the field of commerce. The morning of 24th August, 2016 found the commerce students of standard XI and XII in an enriching counselling session headed by Mr. Santosh Kumar of Career Launcher.
He started off by saying that the most critical phase of the making of ones life is now. The next step being the corporate world, he was at DPS to help the students choose the career which fascinates as well as encourages them to do more in it. To begin the session informally, he told them that those who are from IIM have a pay package of 50 lakhs to 2.5 crores, are very similar to us. The only thing that makes this difference is just that they decided to do something differently. Hundred year old Tata Motors was challenged by forty year old Infosys who were further challenged by a mere light year old Flipkart. He also threw light on the most important question – Can We utilize the opportunities and make a difference?
As commerce students, according to him, the students’ job is to create a disturbance, a disturbance which motivates and attracts others. This disturbance is actually creating a solution to the problems of an individual which is what is meant by business in a corporate world. To be successful, one need to adopt a desperate, methodical approach which we enjoy while doing. He went on to say that “To Be On the Top, Never Compromise, Know what your requirements and needs are and only then you can get to your goals.
The session was thoroughly interactive and all the examples given were quoted from daily lives. The students were made to question the basics of everything and thus encouraging them to be more innovative and have a disciplined approach towards life. He ended the session saying that one should focus to develop oneself so that one can take control of one’s own problems and make right decisions for one’s life.
Dr. Ram Singh, Principal DPS, Ranchi said that he always believes in giving the best opportunity to students. He also said that many more such sessions will be organised for the benefit of the commerce students so that they may get best from their lives.
The session commenced on a note to develop a methodical, rational and rather enjoyable approach towards life and academics. To crave for knowledge and to question is what makes one successful. This has proved to be another enlightening session to stabilize and secure the student’ future.
DPS Ranchi organizes a two-days Career Counselling Seminar For Commerce Students
A two-days Career Counselling Seminar was organized for Commerce students of Class XI & XII at DPS Ranchi to provide the students with the broad view of the career options available in Commerce.
Mr. Deepu Krishna, the Law Division National Anchor of Career Launcher who has trained more than 5,000 students last year along with Mr. Santosh from Career Launcher were the guest speakers who had come to interact with the students.
The first day session i,e, 23rd of August basically focused on the career options available in the field of LAW. To begin with Mr. Krishna said that school life is the best phase of a student’s life and has a unique aura. This is the time when one actually faces pressure from three ends at the choice of career. 1st being the PARENTS who want the students only to study, 2nd being the PEERS, mostly students choose a career on the influence of their friends, and 3rd PERSONEL i.e, neighbours etc. He, through his own experience, highlighted on how these elements affect the choice of careers and how often the choice is influenced by so many external factors due to which one lands doing something which was not his cup of tea.
Further, he told the students about three most important skills which every employer looks for while hiring an employee. They are- An analytical mind i.e, how one perceives things; An excellent Communication Skill i,e, how good one is in convincing others; & lastly A Strong Appearance which just not means looks but how one appears and carries himself in public. He also emphasized on the importance of uniform in students’ life.
Then he told the students that Who is a LAW Student? A rebel, a better citizen who knows what is right and what wrong and also knows how to rectify things is a LAW Student. A Law student is a rational thinker, a mature person and a very powerful individual. He adding more meaning to Law said that it is a NEVER RETIRING PROFESSION i,e, the older a lawyer gets the more experienced he becomes.
He said that Bengaluru National Law University was the first law school and due to excellent students graduating from there NLU’s sprang up in almost every state of India. He also shared the official website i,e, www.superlawyer.in which tells what law schools are doing.
Then moving further Mr. Deepu brought forth the various options one can go for in the field of LAW.
- Litigation- the most popular law career option which is highly paid one.
- Corporate Lawyer- These lawyers guide companies legally.
- Law firms- It is a collection of those lawyers who recruit people.
- Socialist- These are the ones who fight cases like Rape and other Societal problems.
Mr. Deepu then guided the students through the path of getting into NLU. He said through CLAT, which is a 2hrs and 200 marks exam, one can easily get into NLU. For CLAT one needs to strengthen his/her English especially British English, then Logical Reasoning, Mathematical Ability, etc. he encouraged the students to ‘BE A LAWMAN, NOT A LAYMAN’ as Law means Leader And Winner.
Dr. Ram Singh, principal, DPS Ranchi, appreciated the efforts of Mr. Santosh from Career Launcher who made it possible for DPS Ranchi to have Mr. Deepu Krishna, truly an inspiration, amidst the students to enrich their knowledge about various options available in the fioeld of Law. He said that this is a world of information where students need to keep themselves up-to-date with the latest information available in various fields and DPS Ranchi is always on the outlook to help the students in being more and more informative. At the end Sanskriti of Class XII Q delivered the vote of thanks.
