The Sir Syed University of Engineering and Technology (SSUET), Karachi, has established a Students Guidance Centre to facilitate the future engineers.
According to him the focus of career counseling is generally on issues, such as career exploration, career change, personal career development and other career related issues and it supports individuals in understanding their situations, so as to take the issues towards solutions.
“In order to create new jobs/internship opportunities, we have started contacting employers to induct our students in their Internship and hiring programmes,” the SSUET official added.
“Those having passed out from the SSUET are our assets as they are serving the country at many key posts. Keeping in view their positions in job markets we have reached some of them to guide the SSUET students about growing industries and job opportunities and career options they have in job market. Positive response has been received from the alumni,” Siraj Khilji stated
“We are also utilizing social media as an online platform to help and promote the SSUET students to a wider audience, and avail more opportunities of updating the students with different growing industries and their promising opportunities, appraising the students of values of professionalism, which are not found in management books and also identifying different career options which are parallel to engineering profession and are adoptable by an engineer,” he concluded.
