PAF organises workshop on new career opportunities

Sep '09
Gone are the days when students had only a limited number of career options—medicine, engineering or civil services. Now with liberalization and globalization, our fast growing economy has thrown open a plethora of opportunities in a variety of fields like fashion, communication, animation, styling, product design, interior design, retailing, hospitality, media and so on which was simply unimaginable two decades back.

But the problem is that neither the school going students nor their parents are aware of these. This results in situations where students choose careers which don't match their aptitude and strengths.

As a part of its regular outreach initiative, Pearl academy of Fashion organized a workshop for counsellors to create awareness about the new career opportunities as well as to create awareness about the new tools for aptitude measurement that counsellors in the developed countries are using which help students choose careers that are suited to their needs, competencies and inclination.

The workshop relieved tremendous response with 27 schools from Delhi participating in it. Prominent industry personalities shared their expertise with the counsellors during the interactive workshop aptly titled “Innovation- breaking the barriers in counselling”.

The topics of the workshop were:
•Creativity in Counselling and Counselling for Creative Persons
•The Need for Multifaceted Creative Geniuses in today's world
•“India – The Design Hub of the World” – Featuring Industrial Design
•India's Role in the Global Fashion, Retail and The Luxury Industry

The speakers included Prof. Praveen Sharma (Director, Pearl Academy of Fashion, New Delhi and a renowned Educationalist and strategic consultant), Mr. Suresh Verma (Creative Director, Breakthrough Communications & Creative Advisor Communiqué Events), Ms. Shruti Parikh (Head of Design, Desmania) and Mr. Rajiv Grover (VP, Genesis and Head of Tie Rack India)

The counsellors were quite appreciative of the fact that the workshop presented their profession in a new perspective of Innovation, Design and Creativity. They requested the management of Pearl Academy of Fashion to organize such workshop at schools where students could also be able to take advantage of the experience and insight of professionals from the practical world.

Dr A K G Nair, Group Director, Pearl Academy of Fashion expressed satisfaction about the fact that counsellors are becoming more aware about the career opportunities in the emerging fields. In response to a request from participants to organize such workshops in schools so that students and parents too can gain from the expertise of the speakers, he assured his full support.
