Career guidance campaign for adolescents in Sivaganga district

SIVAGANGA: : The Collector, Anand Patil, has stressed the need for planning career in advance so that youngsters can stabilise their life.

Inaugurating a career guidance campaign for adolescents in Sivaganga district, organised by NAM Foundation, Madurai, at a function held here, he said that generally students did not take anything seriously at the adolescent age, but it was an important period for youngsters to decide their future. Unlike yesteryears, the world was wide open. There was no boundary for the talented people. Opportunities were knocking at the door of youngsters, thanks to the tremendous growth of information technology and opening up of the global economy. They could judge the market, even sitting at their home itself.

Hence, students should engage themselves in constructive activities rather than wasting their valuable period at the adolescent age. They should always monitor worldwide job market so that they could select their career in accordance with their interests. Sport was also one of the best areas, as it could give both social status and wealth. So, the students could also concentrate on sports, Mr. Patil added.

While complimenting NAM Foundation for taking a good initiative to help the students choose their career at the adolescent age, Mr. Patil asked the organisers to reach the message out to remote areas of the district also.

In his keynote address, Dr. P. Marimuthu, Vice-Chancellor, Madurai Kamaraj University, said the students should aim for varied career options that would make them outstanding. He also shared his experiences as a student of Sivaganga district and asked them to be ever positive.

Nicholas Francis, Director, NAM Foundation, who organised the programme, said similar programmes would be conducted throughout the district with the support of the district administration.

More than 100 higher secondary school Students of Sivaganga, Manamadurai and Kalaiyarkoil participated in the programme.
