Report on Career counselling workshop

 

 "The difference between great people and everyone else is that great people create their lives actively, while everyone else is created by their lives, passively waiting to see where life takes them next. The difference between the two is the difference between living fully and just existing." Therefore it becomes imperative that the students are groomed from time to time and counselled regarding the avenues open for them – now and in the future.

GGIS arranged a workshop for the senior students (classes 9, 11 and 12) where an eminent speaker Mr. Swapnil Agrawal was invited to school to discuss the change that one can undertake in their career even at a later stage.

Mr. Agrawal cited his own example, to begin with, saying that he was an engineering graduate, went on to do MBA and is finally working with a leading bank in the US.

He further went on to say that this change does not mean that he was diverted, instead he tried to explain to the students that he could identify his potential that was to be a good observer and analyse trends. This was useful in all his fields of work.

Thus he tried to explain to the students that it is important to know what is one’s potential and the key, highlighting trait. This trait should be used to determine the field of work that students need to take up.

He threw the house open to questions where the students asked questions which were substantially answered by him.

The students were very pleased by this exposure and thanked the management and the principal for this initiative.
