Roles and Responsibilities
The Career Guidance and Counselling Cell were established at Kanchi Shri Krishna College of Arts and Science to help and nurture the students with respect to career and personal development needs.
As indicated by the UGC guidelines, the Career and Counselling cell helps the students with appropriate guidance to establish linkages with the world of work and locate career opportunities vis-à-vis the realities and job profiles in the context of highly competitive emerging occupational patterns. The gaps in the perception about the market demands and individual expectations could be bridged through psychological support and confidence-building measures. Nowadays vocational guidance and campus-based interviews have become common practice. These could be taken care of through the active liaison of the Career and Counselling Cell with the recruiting agencies and HR personnel of reputed firms. The active participation of institutional experts from various institutions gives greater on-site experience in the search of suitable candidates. In this exercise, the help of the alumni of the University, are also sought. The cell undertakes training programmes to acquaint the students with the high demand market areas.
