    Nothing beats this, and we encourage and advise every student to find time in the midst of the chaos to reflect and prepare on oneself. From writing down answers to frequently asked HR questions to reviewing what has already been taught in UG and PG programmes to stay current with current events, and so on.
  • Mock Interviews:
    Mock Interview is like a simulation of an actual job interview. It provides our students with an opportunity to practice for an interview and receive feedback on their interviewing skills. The mock interviews are conducted as a practice job interview held with a professional career counselor. A mock interview helps our students to learn how to answer difficult questions, develop interview strategies, improve communication skills, and reduce stress before an actual job interview.
  • Personality Development Sessions:
    We believe that personality can be shaped and confidence can be built into everyone. It needs expertise and a fine eye to work over the strengths and sensitivity to work over the weaknesses .Students learn to imbibe universal values through interactive sessions which help them to retrospect, think and act before doing.
