Career counselling organized at Dimapur


Dimapur, June 18: In a bid to generate more career awareness amongst students, Genius Career Guide, a unit of Dia Education Foundation, on Monday organized a one-day career counseling and motivation programme here at Hotel Acacia, Dimapur. The purpose of the programme was to provide more options and opportunities related to different careers amongst students of the state of Nagaland.
Participating as chief guest, Editor of Nagaland Post Geoffrey Yaden said that unemployment in the country is a major problem and Skill India Scheme was indeed introduced to counter this issue, however, contrary of the plan to create crores of skilled labours in the country through the scheme, only a few lakhs were trained and amongst them a few lakhs found employment and the scheme has been a failure.
He said that though skill is important, without determination to be successful in life, no amount of skill would be of enough use and asked the students to be focused in what they want to achieve, not feel ashamed to do any kind of job and be wary of the time they need to change their tracks.
NPF Minority Cell president Bishnu Bhattacharjee, who was the Guest of Honour for the programme praised the organisers and appealed to conduct more such events for the benefit of the students.
Marina Kiho, winner of Miss Nagaland 2017, spoke on modelling and fashion as career and shared her experience in the field of modelling.
Ranjan K Baruah, Career Mentor, spoke on different attributes required to be successful in life. The programme was sponsored by Sanskriti University, Mathura and Tula’s Institutions, Dehradoon. (Page News Service)
