Career guidance prog organised

SEPPA, Jan 18: Students of Classes 10 and 12 benefitted from a ‘career guidance-cum-counselling programme’ organised here in East Kameng district on Friday by the career guidance cell (CGC) of the Nyishi Elite Society (NES).
NES CGC chairman Dr NT Rikam informed that it was the first career counselling programme of the NES outside the state capital. In his address, he advised the students not to indulge in unwanted activities but to concentrate on their studies.
“You cannot succeed in life without hard work,” he said.
ISSE Rajya Mission Deputy SPD Nangram Pingkap spoke on ‘Components of life management: Factors, goal-setting and tips for effective studies’.
Stressing the importance of self-confidence in achieving success, Pingkap advised the students to know their strengths and weaknesses, and to “plan your life and make scope.”
He suggested to the students not to marry early as it might have a negative effect on their pursuit of careers. “First set the goal, and plan for its achievement,” he said.
PWD (HQ) AE Kongo Gyadi made a presentation on ‘Alternative career scope after passing Class 10’, and Government Model College, Seppa Principal Robin Hissang, spoke on ‘Career scope after Class 12’.
Hissang dwelt on the careers available to students who have passed Class 12, and shared information about universities and colleges across the country which offer diploma and degree courses in various disciplines.
NERIST professor Dr Pradeep Lingfa enumerated the courses available in the NERIST, and gave information about the ongoing process of filling up forms for the institute’s entrance exams.
EKSWCO chairman Khya Safar Pao described the students of East Kameng as the future of the state and advised them to be dedicated to their education.
The students later interacted with the resource persons and learned about various careers and professions suited to their areas of interest.
