SIVASAGAR: Under the joint initiative of Sibsagar Commerce College IQAC, Jorhat Employment Exchange and CDC Dibrugarh University, a training programme for the recently passed out graduates was held at Sibsagar Commerce College premises recently.
The training was provided by several experienced resource persons from Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) where the students learned about the modern-day corporate world demands and work environment, how to face the competitive world, other life challenges, and skills of spoken English. This Employability Enhancement Skill Programme also tried to address other issues like low confidence level, lack of preparation and personality development of the youth from the Northeast. The rigorous training program of 6 hours duration per day, including practical sessions, bore fruit when 17 students from the college got selected for direct appointment in one of India’s largest companies - TCS. Most of the trainees got their appointment at TCS Kolkata in a phased manner and a few will get their appointment offers next week.
The coordinated effort led by Principal Dr. Saumar Jyoti Mahanta, IQAC Coordinator Dr. Padma Nath Sharma, and the Jorhat Employment Exchange brought this success in the very first attempt for the college.
While talking to The Sentinel, Dr. Saumar Jyoti Mahanta, the Principal of the college said, “The college will now conduct many more such training programs with leading companies of India and aims to facilitate appointments of more than 1,000 youths of Sibsagar district through such programs in future.”
