In an age of fierce academic competition and professional accomplishments, proper and structured career guidance plays a crucial role. With this in mind, Dow University of Health Sciences (DUHS) inaugurated a career guidance centre at Dow Medical College (DMC) on Monday.
Vice Chancellor Prof. Masood Hameed Khan said the centre would help students choose from a wide range of career choices, keeping their preferences, skills and abilities for different disciplines in mind. This would give the next set of professionals a better understanding of their options, while not neglecting their aptitude in order to achieve professional excellence.
The centre will offer workshops, individual counselling and a mentorship programme.
Keeping the high unemployment rate and severe skill shortage in mind, Khan said, it was important to prevent students from making bad career choices.
