As part of its annual programme for community service, Rotary Club Dimapur on Friday conducted a career guidance seminar for students of Classes 10-12 at its club premises, Dimapur.
Speaking at the inaugural session of the seminar as chief guest, Nagaland Post editor, Geoffrey Yaden exhorted students to gather as much knowledge and information as they could while they were still at a learning stage. He emphasized on the need to analyze information they gathered during this stage and observed that there were many important jobs/professions they could pursue based on their skills. While urging students to do away with the often generally preconceived notion of ‘employment mentality’ that people had to get a job only to earn a salary, Geoffrey Yaden also pointed out that they should refrain from choosing a profession just because it sounded ‘nice’. He further encouraged them to be self-analytical in assessing their skills and asserted that the person who has more information has more options.
APIDCOL consultant, Dr. Neel Konwar, one of the resource persons for the programme spoke on maintaining the ideal individual skill, knowledge and attitude. He stated that with the arrival of ‘globalization’, there has been tremendous change in ideologies which eventually resulted in the introduction of modern technology. He also called upon the participants to set priorities, rake notes constantly and choose their careers according to their skills.
Other resource persons included SASRD department of Horticulture assistant professor, Rokolhuii Keditsu and TransIndia Aviator instructor, Suman Saha. Topics on potentiality of studies in agriculture, particularly horticultural field and the aviation industry were deliberated. SASRD under Nagaland University, Medziphema, Central Institute of Horticulture Medziphema and Trans India aviation studies were the main focused institutes at the programme. The seminar was attended by over 100 students of Classes 10 and 12 from nine schools in Dimapur.
