Career Guidance and Counseling

“Know Yourself and your worth”

 

This adage of Hazrat Ali is all about what career counseling is. It is directed towards intra -knowledge of self and its true subjectivity. It is a peep into the potential capabilities of a person.


Each individual is a unique creation and holds immense potential of creativity and innovation. He can play an important role in some sphere of life .Career counseling is basically a good match making between objective reality of profession and subjectivity of talents and aptitudes.

Center for Guidance and Career Counseling

 

LCN has recently established its Guidance and Career Counseling center (GCC). Upon establishment, the first step taken was “Students’ Need Assessment Analysis”. Based on the data gathered and the areas highlighted, various training sessions have been conducted so as to help students develop employability skills. In the future this system will also have a complete database of career counseling related areas. Students would be able to access all the relevant content related to guidance and career counseling on LCN Official Website as well as in SLIMS. Further, students will also get a chance to explore opportunities of higher education, internships, jobs and research collaboration.
