Career Guidance Unit

College of Chemical Sciences is constantly engaged to uplift the quality of education that we provide and also the quality of life of students. The Career Guidance Unit of the Institute focuses on supporting students to compete in the corporate world and also to excel in graduate school. Soft skills are a must for an individual. Be it a career as a researcher, a chemist or a management trainee that you are willing to follow, presentation skills and public speaking are necessary to make a striking first impression and to effectively convey your message to the audience. The Gavel Club of CCS is a club managed by the Career Guidance Unit, and it provides an ideal opportunity to improve the aforementioned skills and confidence. Team building, leadership and punctuality are also important qualities that should be instilled in our undergraduates. The career guidance unit hosts CV workshops, mock interview sessions, workshops on higher education opportunities and scholarships, and also awareness on what the industry expects from you. At CCS, we hope for our undergraduates to not only excel in the field, but also to become worthy leaders one day.
