Students were told to be Affirmative and Sure Footed

As many as 25 companies participated in the Career Awareness and Recruitment Drive (CARD) organised by the Andhra Pradesh State Council of Higher Education (APSCHE) at the Andhra Loyola College on Sunday.

Nearly 2,000 students from different colleges in and around the city made use of the programme and attended interviews by the teams of the participating companies.

Addressing the inaugural function, APSCHE Chairman K.C. Reddy said though employment generation might not be the single most agenda of higher education, educational institutions should not neglect this aspect in the light of increasing job opportunities.

In the new economy, jobs were being created more in the corporate and unconventional areas rather than in government and the benefits should be passed on to the younger generation by providing them requisite skills, he added.

Acharya Nagarjuna University Vice - Chancellor Y.V. Haragopal Reddy, Rector K. Viyanna Rao, Registrar M.V.N. Sarma, Krishna University Vice - Chancellor M.K. Durga Prasad, Andhra Loyola College Principal Francis Xavier, correspondent D. Showraiah, CARD Coordinator N.A. Francis Xavier and others spoke.

Advising the students to be positive and confident, Prof. Reddy said that the CARD was mainly aimed at bringing on to common platform industries, universities, colleges, students and all the stake holders so that there would be a better understanding about employable skillsets.

He pointed out that in the current scenario, the 'Es' that were dominating the scene were education, employment and economy, which was why the APSCHE was coming out with programmes to further the cause of the students.

Language Skills

Prof. Reddy also advised the students to look at the overall aspects of employability, which include the three areas of communication skills, technical abilities and group skills that the companies were looking for in their prospective employees.

English language skills were playing a major role too in employability of young generation. But this did not mean that a student should have a command over his or her accent either British or American, but it was more related to the basic concept of clear communication, he added.
