Need to develop working models within institutions: Akhtar
SRINAGAR: The Minister for Education, Naeem Akhtar today said although J&K has the best talent available among students and teachers, there is need to provide an enabling environment and requisite motivation to excel. He said there is need to develop working models within institutions with the help of students on commercial lines, so that they could explore their inner abilities, imbibe local needs and job-intensive skills to be enterprisers.
The Minister said this while speaking as Chief Guest on the occasion of Mega Job Fest-2015, organized by the Centre for Career Planning & Counselling, University of Kashmir, in collaboration with the CT Group of Institutions, Jallandhar, at University of Kashmir, here today.
Addressing a well attended gathering, the Minister said that the aspirants at the fest present the best face of the State. He said it is the day that will mark their first step into the world of realities and beautiful dreams. He said finding a job may be a challenge in the point of time, however it is the knowledge, time, skills that have been invested in their overall personality development which may help them sail through on the day.
Advising the students, to consider such opportunities as launching platform for their career, the Minister said that initially there may be a phase when they would have to rough it out against odds, but sticking around will ensure them a better and secure future.
The Minister said that in todays market economy the companies or the enterprises look for the people who would work hard to add value to their organization, and thus would look for nothing else but hard-work, soft skills, loyalty and determination in the people that they hire.
Appreciating the organisers for their endeavour, the Minister said he would wish the ambit of such an exercise is further widened and results in picking up record number of aspirants.
Vice Chancellor, University of Kashmir, Prof. K. I. Andrabi, Registrar, University of Kashmir, Prof. Zafar Ahmad Reshi, Director, Centre for Career Planning & Counselling, Prof. Farooq Ahmad Khan and representatives of CT Group of Institutions were present on the occasion.
