Governor asks students to inculcate professionalism

ITANAGAR, Mar 22: Governor Dr B D Mishra has called upon the students of Rajiv Gandhi University, National Institute of Technology, Arunachal Pradesh and North Eastern Regional Institute of Science and Technology to inculcate knowledge and professionalism required for their intended profession.
Interacting with the students and faculty of the premier institutions on the theme ‘Campus Placement’ at the Raj Bhavan here on Thursday, the governor advised the students to prepare themselves for future challenges.
‘With better language and analytical skill, positive approach, leadership skills and creating good peer group, the students can make themselves the most employable,’ the governor said.
He emphasised that for better campus placement, the standard of the institute must improve. He said that the standard can improve with the concerted efforts of students through their academic excellence, faculty through their display of utmost professionalism and joint effort of students and faculty in research works.
While suggesting them to seek help from alumni of their alma mater and optimum use of social media, the governor emphasized on strengthening the training and placement cell of the institutions of higher education. He also suggested that the Training and Placement Cell must be lead by persons having good professional reputation and good public relationship or rapport with corporate houses on full time basis.
The governor also suggested that the best member of the faculty with some top students of the institutes must approach corporate houses and offer their services free of cost as interns.
Such initiative, he pointed out, would enhance the attractiveness of the institute in the job market and ensure better opportunities during campus placement.
The students and members of the faculty in-charge for training and placement also shared their views and suggestions with the governor. (PRO to Governor)
