The session facilitated by the institute, covered various nuances of career planning and management. In the interactive session, Mr. Srivastava urged students of PGDM to lay more emphasis on individual planning and take more initiatives to make the right career decisions. He elaborated that a student has to be focused and career conscious and should prepare for facing interviews and competitions in order to climb the golden ladder of a robust career building process. Discussing the current market scenario and sharing real life examples from his experience, he shared important do’s and don’ts with management students.
In the interactive session, he asked students of PGDM, to share their aims and dream careers; on which he left value-adding comments for each participant. He also encouraged PGDM students to introspect and clearly answer important questions like-
- Where are you standing now in terms of your career?
- What are your goals and what skills do you have to meet them?
- Where do you see yourself a few years later?
- What are your other career options?
- What are your obstacles and what is stopping you from reaching your goals?
Each question helped mangement students analyze and ascertain answers to simple yet important questions that form basis of all recruitment processes in India. While one to one analysis of every answer wasn’t possible, the session discussed some key learnings like importance of being fluent, assertive and transparent in these answers.
In the latter part of the session at the college, Mr. Srivastava helped students doing PGDM to identify their needs, shortcomings and to set priorities in life. Sharing what a recruiter expects from a candidate, he devoted a few minutes on the “Recruiter’s perspective” during an interview.
The session will remain a great catalyst inspiring participants to polish their skillsets and develop the right mindset in the process of building their careers.
