The PS was addressing a day-long workshop on Swami Vivekananda Career Guidance Scheme at the Government Naveen College on Friday.

He suggested that girl students should proactively seek help of career counsellors to decide future options. The State Government wants to provide guidance in context of the changing circumstances at national and international level, he added.
Commissioner of Higher Education S N Mishra said if students receive guidance in proper time, they can be prepared to avail opportunities. Director of the scheme Dr Jayantilal Bhandari said that the students have to be moulded as per the present market of employability.
