Career Information & guidance workshop at DPS, Navi Mumbai

Your Dipsites Association, in an effort to guide the students studying in High School, is launching a Career Guidance cell to help them know of career opportunities and make informed choices. And as a first step, will hold a half-day workshop at DPS navi Mumbai in the last week of May 2013.

Respected Principal Mr. Chabbra is keen that Dipsites share their invaluable experience on the nuances, efforts and  rewards of the careers/ professions/ vocations they are in. To achieve this we invite Dipsites, in at least the following fields, to spare a little time on the appointed day and come and speak to the students.  

Advertising Marketing, Airlines, Banking, Creative art, Events Public Relations, Fashion, Film making, Government Service, Hotel Restaurant, Internet related,Legal services, Marine Engineering, Media, Medicine, Retailing, Software development, Teaching & training, Telecom.

I volunteer to go and speak on Chartered Accountancy as a profession.

If you would like to speak for 15 minutes followed by a quick Q&A with the student/ parents do let us know ASAP. A format is emerging and we would share the same with you soon.

We look forward to support and ideas to make this event meaningful and regular.

  3. Dear Mr. Soni,

    It will be a pleasure to participate in the endeavor.

    While i could speak on Banking, i am sure there will be other more qualified speakers on the subject in the group. So, instead i could interact with students on ‘Creative writing – Career or Vocation’ if that gels with the overall plan of the workshop.

    Do let me know the way forward on the same.


  4. Dear Mr. Soni
    thanks so much for your email
    its a little too soon to commit a time in may as i have a film i am currently working on which will start pre production on 1st may and i would have to travel to punjab for a recce sometime in may.
    would it be possible to let you know sometime closer to the date of the workshop?

  5. Dear Rajiv,

    Thank you for your email. It would be a pleasure to participate. I can share my experiences about FMCG industry.

    Are we expected to prepare some kind of a presentation or it would be more of a round table sort of a thing?

    Also, I might be traveling around that time so as of now please count me in. Sometime in the first week of may I will confirm if any changes.

    Thanks & Regards,

  9. Saurabh, thanks a lot. A presentation wd be very helpful…say 10-15 slides…

    Your response is extremely strenthening for me, as it reaffirms my belief that we (older) Dipsites shd do something meaningful too- for the younger lot.
