Students came in large numbers on the first day of the ‘Career Counselling' forum organised by the Hindustan Times at the Siri Fort Auditorium.

Panels of experts from reputed Delhi University colleges were present at the various sessions to answer all queries regarding admissions.

From course options, career choices, submission procedures, experts from various disciplines had answers to queries.

"How many people at your age know where they want to be or what they want to do? Don't narrow down your options by deciding what you want to be at this stage in life," said Pratibha Jolly Miranda House , principal, and urged students to strengthen their foundation in traditional disciplines before jumping into professional courses.

"If somebody wants to be a dietician, one could opt for B.Sc. in Biology or Chemistry and then take up a Diploma in Home Science or Nutrition."

"This leaves scope for more career choices and also lays a good foundation, whereby a student is at an edge over the rest as she/he has knowledge of allied disciplines," Jolly said.

Dr Rajesh Mohan, principal of Shivaji College, agreed with her views and also encouraged students to look at various add-on courses in addition to their main course of study.
