Seminar on Campus to Corporate “C2C”@ Darshan College
“Whenever you are asked if you can do a job, tell them ‘certainly I can.’
Then get busy and find out how to do it.”
Theodore Roosevelt
With the arrival of May month and May flowers, there arrive also Recruiters to the Campus. Their mantra becomes a resonance in the Campus, “right candidate for the right job at the right time”. The Placement Cell of Darshan College initiated the Seminar on Campus to Corporate World in order to help the students to discern the expectations and the challenges of the Corporate World. Mr. Vinay and his team of ZOBRA Learning presented the aspirations and the modern challenges of the Corporate World. Their motivational seminar helped the students to identify “Skills needed to Enter, Sustain and to Nurture corporate life.” It also enabled the students to understand the transition needed from a student becoming a professional. As almost 80% of the Indian employers say that today’s students lack soft skills and social skills necessary to fit into the corporate culture of their organization, this initiative of Darshan College is one of the responses to such a lacuna. The Placement Cell also invited different Recruiters so that the candidates have an opening to the world of work wherein their aptitudes and their aspirations meet the demands of the actual market. Certainly, Campus to Corporate Seminar has been an exciting and phenomenal step in the lives of the would-be corporate candidates. Yes we can!
