The HT Campus Calling series, conducted recently at the Army Public School, Noida, concluded successfully with a Beyond DU counselling session which was initiated by HTCampus in association with Manav Rachna International University.

The counselling session was attended by students from all streams  such as arts, science, medicine, commerce, management, animation and design and mass communication.

The panel speakers set the tone of the event by giving insights into a student’s life, what should be a more important decision – course or college, citing examples on how a college is identified by the students it produces.

Present on the occasion were professors, lecturers, and deans of reputed private institutions in Delhi NCR. The event was opened with an address by Alok Jain, co-founder of CareerCo, who emphasised on the importance of being aware of one’s strengths and weaknesses. He said it is imperative that a student realises where his/ her interests lie, so that they can have passion in whatever they do, to be truly successful.

He was followed by Prof BS Gill, associate director, FET,   Manav Rachna International University. Prof Gill, talked about the scope of engineering as a career, describing the multi-facets and the various perfect combinations that the engineering field has to offer. He said ‘Mechanical engineering is the mother of all engineering sciences.

Dr Shobha Kulshrestha, dean of AAFT, took over the podium and shared  information on excellent career opportunities in the fields of  cinema, journalism and multi media. She said that the field is full of career opportunities, what with thousands of jobs generated for mass communication graduates across various facets of media/ journalism. It’s just about time that students start identifying their possibilities in the wide spectrum of opportunities.

Dr Anil Sarin, dean of Manav Rachna International University stressed on the importance of self assertion and self- belief over any management course and said that it is the key factor in determining a student’s success or failure. He also advised students to check the credibility of course affiliation and course accreditation by recognised government bodies, lest they are duped into believing everything that an institute promises.

Amit Dua, AGM, Maya Academy of Advanced Cinematics, was the final speaker of  and event and he explained how the field of animation, albeit new, had taken over the market today.
