Ambala, November 25

The district administration of Ambala has come out with an initiative for Class XI and XII students of government schools to help them in selecting career.

Continuing with this endeavour a seminar was organised for students of Ambala Block II and Saha, who want to join the Army and Air Force, at SD College, Ambala Cantonment.

On the occasion, Col Gagan Katyal, Col Gopal Chand Lohani, Lt Col Varun Vashistha, Major Shaishta, and Captain Pooja guided students and made them aware about rules and education required for officers and soldiers in the armed forces.

Lance Naik Himanshi Rajavat and Lance Naik Sandhya Shukla shared their experiences with students.

The Deputy Commissioner (DC), Ambala, Vikram Singh, said, “In order to give the required exposure and opportunities to students of government schools we have decided to provide career guidance and counselling. In this process, students are being asked about career options and then interactive sessions are being organised with officials concerned to provide guidance to them.”

“One such seminar was held today in which Army and Air Force officials addressed students. Students were informed about how they can join the Army. Officials answered queries of students and provided valuable information to them,” the DC added.

While addressing students, the DC said, “We have to study regularly and hard to join the Army. Keep aim high and also keep in mind that our documents are always ready. Sometimes we fail to apply for a course or job due to non-completion of documents.”

The DC also motivated participants to share information gathered at the seminar with other students.

“Detailed information given at the seminar will also be made available in schools so that students are well informed about the career they want to choose. Students, who aspire to join banking, are being guided by bank officials in their respective schools. Similar sessions will be organised for students, who wish to join other fields,” the DC added.

“To provide guidance to students, career guidance books are available in libraries of all 93 government senior secondary schools in the district. A career book containing necessary information, including career options, streams, websites, colleges and universities has also been provided. If more books are required, students can inform the district education officer through their respective school principals, and books will be provided to them,” said the DC.
