Interactive Session on Vocational Experiences in the Social Sector with Navendu Rashmi

Experience is a great teacher and sharing experiences is like spreading education and skills in making things happen practically. The interactions between those who are about to foray into the open and those who work at the heart of it is indispensable for optimal performance and success later on.
On Monday, July 1, the students of the First Year and Second Year M.A. in Applied Sociology had an interactive session on vocational experiences in the social sector with Ms. Navendu Rashmi, an alumnus of CHRIST (Deemed to be University) from the M.A. in Sociology Batch of 2011-2013. She is now a Senior Executive of the Corporate Citizenship department of a major professional services firm, KPMG. 
During the hour-long session, facilitated by Dr. Sudhansubala Sahu, students had the opportunity to ask Ms. Navendu questions on career opportunities as well as professional requirements and attributes needed for development in the social sector. As such, varied aspects of employment for sociologists in NGOs and corporate firms were discussed by her with insights and suggestions from her own experiences.
The aspects primarily discussed were the nature of the recruitment processes of NGOs, internships, expectations of sociology students from corporate firms, the skill- based advantages and the means of improving communication as well as availing employment opportunities via networking and developing working experience with organizations.
In addition, Ms. Navendu encouraged students to ask any queries related to their post-graduate education, and experiences in the same; the need for maintaining openness to various forms of job opportunities based on evolving, and the need to develop interests and skills was emphasized.
