November 10, 2022. India. KAMP conducted a special Workshop on “Guidance on Profile Building to Select a Career Path” with more than 600 students of 5th to 12th standard from different schools across India as participants. The session was convened by Ms Arika Mathur, Member KAMP Planning & Monitoring Committee.
This session was facilitated by Mr Love Jain (Career Counsellor). He is one of the leading career counsellors in India, with 20 years of experience in advising students on stream selections, career choices, and college entrance preparations for non-conventional careers in India as well as abroad.
In this workshop he guided the students on the importance of Profile Building in order to select a career path as well as what are the strategies one should consider while building their Profile. According to Mr. Love Jain it all begins with understanding yourself and the areas to which one is comfortable with.
Throughout the workshop, he emphasized on focusing on the practical things when developing a profile. It is very important to focus on external activities, practical exposure and not just extra-curricular activities along with regular studies in order to ace within the job market. Mr Love suggested that students should focus on external activities such as research papers, internships, working on a project, small certification courses, etc.
Doing this will not only help them gain the basic skills required for the profession, but also gain an understanding of how much they are compatible for the chosen career line. It is important to publish papers, present them in front of a diverse audience. This will also help students with the statement of purpose for their college and build their profile for colleges as well as the jobs they choose to pursue. Last but not least, he also took questions from the students and helped them understand how they could make the right choices of courses depending on their skills and interests.
The purpose of KAMP’s Fortnightly workshops is to help students develop creativity, meaningful learning, and critical reading and thinking skills that bring out their inherent abilities. The vision of KAMP is to identify and capture Scientific and Technological temperament in students to make India – a Global Leader in the field of Science, Technology and Humanities.
Such workshops, conducted by KAMP deal with various topics that fall under the category of Science, Technology and Innovations, Scientific and Life Skills, Career & Professional Development, Academic Development and Train the trainers/teachers.
