Patna, Sept. 23: Leo Club of AN College achievers, in collaboration with Triumphant Institute of Management Education (TIME), organised an open seminar today on the college premises.
At the event, undergradu-ates from the college were provided career-related information.
Some MBA students also took this opportunity to inter-act with the counsellors present at the seminar.
The students also organised a current affairs quiz which saw enthusiastic participation from the contestants as well as the audience.
IIM Bangalore passout and TIME director Sanjay Kumar addressed the students on the topic — Career options after graduation. Kumar said: “A person should do what he/she wants without any sort of hesitation.”
Giving an example of potential of human brain, Sanjay said that a three-year-old child who listens to four to five languages at home picks up words from all of them. This is because the child does not fear what people would think of him. He concentrates on what he is listening to and takes no time to learn languages that are totally new to him.
“Youngsters have many career options before them after completing graduation. They can go for law, MBA and many more. Today, MBA is supposed to be the best career option. Not only does it provide job opportunities, but also opens up new avenues for the candidates. An MBA student can go in for marketing management, HR, logistics and operation management, foreign trade and many others fields.”
Kumar advised the students to acknowledge their strengths and weaknesses. He said: “After introspecting, a student should decide where he stands and then should select the career options best for them. One should always have two to three options.”
John Albert, English faculty of TIME, was present at the seminar.
Addressing the students, Albert said: “A student should concentrate on communication skills, particularly English. One should always live in an environment which will help enhance one’s personality.”
Marketing head of TIME Saurav Singh and students of AN College Sandeep Choudhary and Tanu Kumari were the brains behind organising the seminar.
