A career-counselling workshop for the students of class 12th was arranged on May 3rd, as a form of webinar through the Zoom video-conferencing application. The Counsellor, Mr. Ashish Jain from EduMentor, is a renowned career guide and was the main host for the workshop.
It started off by pointing to some ways of de-stressing from various types of anxiety and negativity the students may be facing or are surrounded by. Several myths about percentage and placements were debunked and the students’ perspective towards their higher academics were widened. The importance and difficulties of college placements were relaxed discussed. Top-notch colleges and courses in each field were also shown to the students.
Mr. Jain did his best at making the students understand these in an eloquent manner. The mode of language was simple yet effective, and was embellished with real life anecdotes and a Power Point Presentation.
Students could also directly interact with the host through the chats option. This interaction was active throughout the whole session.
A form for a rather elaborative session to be held on Sunday was also shared with the students.
