Jodhamal students had an experience of interacting with the Havard Fame Counselor ParikshitDhanda who took a session with the students of Jodhamal on how to prepare for a life time and how to balance between the studies and the hobbies.
Parikshit had made his talk so very interactive that all students felt like hearing him for more though duer to paucity of time he could not take more than an hour with the students. He gave tips on how the career options are changing and how the students are unaware of the career options which can be explored by them in the chosen subjests. He asked the kids as to how much do they know their parents and in his talks he proved that students do not know much about their parents too. Then in that case without proper research how would they know the career options related to their stream. He said that most of the parents think and associate PCB with Medical career whereas there are atleast 55 more careers attached to it and at time even more rewarding, the need is to explore and research the options and be with the changing times. Medical Transcription, Criminology, Genetic Engineering, Physiotherapy,Bio Technology, Bio Chemistry etc being few of them. He also made the kids understand that besides studies the soft skills are very imoprtant but the academic cut offs play a vital role in getting into a course. According to Parishit the subjects like Psychology are gaining the momentum as in the future it will be more of the Human studies which will fetch people more jobs and in the field of Sports the amazing change is seen in the last few years. He said few years back nobody ever thought of a wrestle earning in crores but the 21st century has made it possible for all sports to flourish be it Kabbadi, Khk Kho, Basketball, Badminton, Lawn Tennis, Table Tennis, Football or the Cricket. He told kids that even if one is not selected in the International Cricket and can only make a place in the IPLs his 7 generations can live on his earnings. Sports Management, Sports Journalism, Sports Therapy etc are some of the important courses which have been introduced today and all are highly rewarding opportunities.Students had asked a lot of questions on the diverse topics and could find soothing answers in a very befitting manner from Parikshit.
Parikshit was accompanied by EshaBaggaan alumni of Welhem Girls and the Warwick University UK.
