A career oriented educational seminar was held on Monday under the aegis of the Libra Consultancy of Indian North-East Tribal Community Welfare Society at Don Bosco Higher Secondary School. Students from various schools in Kohima attended the seminar.
Additional director, Higher and Technical Education, Athili Kathipri, who graced the occasion as the chief guest called upon the students to choose their study option wisely. He said that they were at a crucial stage where what they choose would determine their career and their future. Stating that the concept of mathematics being a tough subject was wrong, Kathipri said the wrong concept needs to be corrected. He pointed out that Naga students were second to none in the subject and many had excelled in the subject even in the national level.
With competition level escalating, he urged the studebts to build up their capacity for learning and work hard. The chief guest further stated that there were many scopes of employment provided people know how to make use of their skills and education. He said that the unemployment problem in the state was because it is targeted only to the government sector.
Earlier, Aheno from INTCW Society said that the seminar was organized to create education awareness to the public and the students community about the loopholes and advantages of studying outside the state. She also highlighted some works of the society which includes helping in admission procedures for students studying outside the state, career counseling, verification of colleges and institutions, etc.
Guests speakers for the seminar also included Anthony, principal, Model Christian College, Dr. Neikhrielie and representatives from Kohima Village Students Union.
