DPS R.K. Puram organized a career counseling session for the students of class X on Friday, 26th July 2019 in the Audio Visual Hall. With a plethora of career options available in the contemporary times, the role of a career counseling session becomes indispensable. The session was conducted by a team of Career Launcher, a recognized brand in the education sector.
The session was conducted in two groups with the students of sections H – O attending from 8:30 am to 9:40 am & the students of section A – G attending from 11:20 am to 12:40 pm. Ms.Vanita Sehgal, the principal, addressed the students. She highlighted the various subject options offered in class XI. She encouraged the students to pursue their interests and urged them to work sincerely to achieve their goals. A power point presentation regarding the same was also shown to the students by the reps of class X. Ms. Rashmi Malhotra, the headmistress, addressed the students and encouraged them to clarify the doubts regarding the courses.
The resource person Ms. Neha Wahi took the first session followed by Mr. Saurav Gupta & Mr. Anubhav Rakheja taking the second session. They emphasized that one must have in-depth knowledge of the choices lest one might end-up in a career that is not made for one. It is common among students going through this transition phase to get influenced by misinformation and end up making wrong decision. They urged the students not to make decisions based on peer pressure. Students were made aware of the different options in profession and courses they could pursue based on the subject choices they would make. Queries raised by the students were addressed by the career launcher team. Both the sessions were immensely enriching and interesting.
