More than the lengthy and challenging duration of education across school and college, the contemporary worry is what happens afterward in terms of jobs? The quality of education should ensure professional excellence and suitability for the working field at whatever level, usually at a lower level to commence with. The eight schools of AP Goyal Shimla University have taken up a large number of bachelors and masters degree courses, some academic and research-based and many professional courses that involve on-the-job training, internships, and placements.
Would it not be reassuring to have a guarantee of campus placements at the end of the course of studies so that the tensions of job hunts do not exist? As a charitable non-profit university, APGSU does make sure that the students are suitably settled in jobs instead of leaving them at the mercy of the unpredictable job scenario. Many authorities believe that the quality of education in many Indian institutions leave the students unemployable because they are not really equipped to take on the challenges of the 21st-century life.
An intensely effective Placements Cell at APGSU works globally to serve student needs
A network that connects with the leading companies and manufacturers, MNCs and organizations, lies at the heart of the efforts to get the best deals for the students. The contacts at the corporate level require a great deal of groundwork to develop a suitable atmosphere for mutual give and take. Commercialization is not the goal but an idealistic relationship prevails to get students off to a flying start in their professional careers. It is an ethical approach that pervades the university dealings and businesses share in the concerns.
The popular brands we are all familiar with on a daily basis in the media often hold seminars and workshops as a part of their communication and training drive. APGSU students are exposed to such opportunities that provide eye-openers to the real state of the industry and the actual working conditions. The purpose of the committee is 100% placement and they really strive to achieve that magic figure each academic year.
Students are equipped by APGSU to become effective professionals
Personality development is high on the APGSU agenda. Companies cannot look into the minds of workers but the appearance, dress, behavior, and manners are visible and make the first and last impression. The level of confidence is very important besides communication skills. Though the requirements differ somewhat between the eight sectors in the university like hospitality and architecture, for instance, it is all essentially the same. It is partly true that law and management would differ in their approaches. Yet, every profession has a great deal in common and a dynamic education builds bridges not only between cultures but also between the professions.
It is not only these subjects that are dealt with in copious detail through a variety of media but career planning and professional requirements have a due place of importance in the training. A head full of crammed knowledge is certainly not sufficient to cope up with contemporary requirements. The world today has enough and more information on every subject overpowering the society and the technological media at every moment.
What are needed are smart, young professionals who can think on their feet and apply what they have learned to real-life situations and make quick decisions. If the institutions and the faculty are in tune with the changing needs of the industry, they will pass on the trade secrets to the students. The latest updates on market developments come to students at APGSU quite easily because of the global network achieved by the placement committee.
Skills for life and balanced academic and practical learning
While many institutions promise the best internships and placements, few really practice what they preach. Most students end up half-successful or not successful at all in the job hunt, condemned to a life of mediocre work. It is true that the boys and girls have to prove themselves and turn in meritorious performances during the training course at APGSU but much of the responsibility depends upon the faculty. The faculty at APGSU is constantly busy with innovative research programs and thus contributing to the growth of new knowledge. The academic staff is industry savvy too and shows students the right path rather than theoretical approaches alone.
Life skills should stress the long-term success and not the immediate goals. Teaching a person to fish is better because it will sustain lifelong. A balanced approach between the theoretical and practical approaches may promote such a realistic approach. Company quarterly and annual reports often form the basis of discussion and debate. Access to company newsletters and magazines on careers promote understanding and a desire to excel at jobs.
Studying in one of the APGSU eight schools would ensure professional success with the right approaches and skills, personality building and contemporary industry knowledge.
