How Your College Education Influences Your Future Professional Growth

The top priority for any ambitious student always remains at learning and equipping himself/herself with skills that are valuable both personally and professionally. However, what one needs to realize is that learning is not, and should not be, confined to the classrooms. When students take on their degrees, they are in the process of learning much beyond the academic knowledge and gaining crucial skill sets for their future career. As such, it becomes important that students learn and gain from every part of their college experience,which serves to provide them with immense opportunities to develop their abilities, skills, attitude, and aptitude, and also help them gain confidence to work efficiently in a professional environment which they’ll encounter post their student life. It has to be admitted that the entire learning environment offered by an educational institute,backed with strong guidance from the faculty, is what helps mold a student’s capabilities and influences his/her future professional growth.

Professional skill set is something that every student needs to acquire to establish a successful career. To have a good professional life ahead, it becomes necessary that students gain far beyond academic excellence; theygain technical know-how and hands-on experience related to their subject. When it comes to academic learning, the rigorous curriculum, access to technology-based resources, quality instructors/faculty, the institutional infrastructure, and learning environment serve as the important factors that aid in raising a student’s achievement professionally.

How Education Influences One’s Personal/Professional Capabilities?

Undertaking a professional course is clearly about gaining academic knowledge and industry experience, but it is also about developing one’s professional and personal capabilities. Whether you want to prepare yourself for a career, or broaden your professional/personal capabilities, or enhance your skills and improve your employability, your educational institution is the best place where you acquire and develop professional capabilities. The course of action during one’s education forms the foundation for the professional career and growth ahead.

Soft Skills Development:

Soft skills constitute the core of a person’s capabilities when it comes to attaining professional success. This is because your technical skills can easily get you the desired job, but it is actually your soft skills that will help you sustain the job. Some of the essential soft skills that you acquire during the time you spend in your University are verbal/written communication, teamwork, problem-solving ability, time management, collaboration, and leadership qualities. We, at the J.K. Lakshmipat University, offer the necessary platform to our students to gain these skills during their coursework. Through various programs and activities, students are efficiently trained to clearly define problems, analyze data, design and execute appropriate experiments, and draw conclusions. Students are given the opportunities to objectively analyze and evaluate information in every situation and develop appropriate solutions to the problems. Whether it is about succeeding in personal endeavors or establishing a strong base for the professional life ahead, we help our students master the ‘soft skills’ through various personality development programs and workshops held at the University.

Career Preparation:

Activities conducted at the J.K. Lakshmipat University enable students to be cognizant of and be prepared for the industry conditions and identify the opportunities that best serve their long-term career interests. Students are involved in various skill-focused activities as a part of the course curriculum and are engaged in industry-based research and internship programs that help them prepare for their career development. Hands-on experience is highly encouraged in most of the departments to ensure graduates are aware of the industry and are well-versed with the practical application of the theoretical knowledge gained. With activities like internship programs, research works, job-shadowing, training sessions, job-based simulations, and mentorships, students are provided the needed exposure to face the real-world job market and achieve a mastery on their technical/professional skills.

Knowledge Development:

Once you get graduated, you need to take your knowledge and expertise into a career beyond.  Employers prefer graduates who are up to date, are able to gather information, and have the ability to identify/address key issues from multiple perspectives. Your learning environment at your educational institution is where you are provided with the needed theoretical knowledge and researching capabilities that will transform you into academically and practically trained career-ready individuals. The research assignments and projects are designed tohelp train students to deploy their academic knowledge and prepare for the professional sphere. Similarly, on-campus research and other scholarly activities within the institutionare intended to expose the students to more opportunities for knowledge acquisition.

Apart from the academic knowledge, the researches help the students to apply discipline-specific subject knowledge and training productively. JKLU offers structured training programs to help improve the personal and professional competencies of the students.

In short, there is no other better place than your educational institute to facilitate research and knowledge development. Admittedly, your degree has a major influence on your future professional growth. However, it is not only the right course or the degree that matters, choosing the right college/university also matter a lot, as this is the place where you get the right learning environment and opportunities.
