PERSONAL AND CAREER DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
Employability skills are key to placements. Although most students imbibe this throughout their tenure in the college, a dedicated programme that leaves no stone unturned in enhancing students’ employability is organised by the Placements Cell.
The PCDP is carried out in three phases: Foundation, Advanced, and Completion.
The Foundation Phase lays the cornerstone of an outstanding character by training students in the essentials of team-building skills, organising and prioritising, time management and personality development. On the career front, the programme primarily emphasises making students employable, incorporating activities such as resumé writing, mock interviews and group discussions.
The Advanced Phase builds on the skills acquired in the Foundation Phase. Subjects such as leadership and personal performance management are targeted, and stress management is discussed. Career development is enhanced through learning about ethics, thinking skills, debates, case studies and problem-solving. The objective of this module is to transform students from ‘employable’ to ‘potential asset to company’.
The Completion Phase infuses students’ intellect with entrepreneurial qualities, innovative, visionary and critical thinking, analysis and synthesis. This phase includes opportunity identification, environment analysis, creative thinking, identification of assumptions, evaluation of statements in terms of evidence, detection of false logic or reasoning, and identification of implicit values.
The learning in this module is carried out by means of diverse training exercises such as simulated business enterprising, simulated complex environments, technical and non-technical breakthrough, and many more.
