Self confidence, avoiding oft treaded path keys to career selection

Jamshedpur, May 25: Marwari Yuva Manch Steel City Surabhi branch today organized a free Career Counseling Workshop for classes XI and XII students at a Bistupur hotel. More than 90 students participated in this workshop wherein they learnt how to select a professional career while in the course of their studies. The career workshop was jointly inaugurated by the speakers and guests. The speakers included Commissioner Central Tax IRS Ajay Pandey, Advocate of Ranchi High Court Sumit Gadodia, Prof XLRI Sanjiv Varshney, Finance and Accounts officer of Tata Steel Jyoti Prakash, Principal Mount Litera Zee School Kavita Agrawal and State President of Marwari Yuva Manch Abhishek Agrawal.

While wishing the participating students success in their future careers, speakers advised them to strengthen and rely on their self confidence. “If you don’t trust yourself why would others trust you?” they specifically asked.

They said that while looking for career options, they should avoid walking on oft treaded paths. “You should come out of your cocoon and think out of the box. The more different you are in your career selection process, the more your career graph will climb. There are no major norms for a better career but you should always rely on some basic points. Before selecting a subject for higher studies, the inclination of a student towards a subject is imperative.”

Students made several queries and the speakers replied to them.

The guests present on the occasion were social worker Ashok Agrawal, Vikas Mittal, Vipin Bhai Adeshra, Krishna Agrawal, Kishor Agrawal, Ankit Agrawal and Ajay Chetani. They appreciated the efforts of the Surabhi team to open up career vistas for the upper layers of school students. They observed that to be different from others, it was essential to have basic knowledge of every sector. They said that whereas it was necessary to have concrete knowledge of one’s own field of pursuit it was also essential to have updates on developments and avenues of other spheres of career opportunities. “If you stay abreast with information on other fields apart from your own inclination towards avenues of your choice, you will stand apart from the crowd,” they said.

Student participants at the workshop who scored more than 94 percent marks were given chocolates by the Surabhi members. Student Nishant Naredi who anchored the event stated, “We should recognize our talents and try to do something new.”

The Surabhi organizing team comprised president Parul Chetani, secretary Nisha Singhal, convener Shraddha Chowdhary, Muskan Agrawal, Usha Chowdhary, Rina Goyal, Sonu Moonka, Ruchi Bansal, Smita Moonka, Sangita Debuka, Mamata Agrawal, Sushila Agrawal, Priti Jhajharia, Sangita Agrawal, Nilam Agrawal, Priti Budhia, Suman, Asha and Manisha.
