RGU holds workshop on employability skills

RONO HILLS, Apr 29: A two-day workshop on ‘Employability skills and career counselling’, organized by the career counselling cell of Rajiv Gandhi University (RGU) in collaboration with New Delhi-based Career Launcher, began on Monday in the university’s education department here.
RGU Vice Chancellor Prof Saket Kushwaha highlighted the techniques of achieving excellence in any career, and advised the participants to add degrees of different fields to their educational qualification.
“Commoners will never get a job and one has to put the self above the minimum basic qualifications,” he said, emphasizing that anyone seeking a job has to have a strategic plan for that particular job, a good understanding and knowledge of the job, motivate oneself, and change one’s work ethics and attitude to optimize one’s abilities.
RGU Registrar Prof Tomo Riba said “getting a job is an art which requires key skills and training,” and therefore it is important for the youths to attend such programmes.
RGU placement cell in-charge, Prof Tasi Kaye, stressed the importance of the programme and expressed conviction that the programme would “mould the minds of the youth towards proper selection of careers.”
Career counselling cell coordinator Dr Boa Reena Tok advised the participants to make the best use of the presence of the resource persons and equip themselves with a better understanding of employability and the skill sets required for the purpose.
