Career Guidance Program organised by Info Institute of Engineering for Plus 2 Students

If the students select the college and subject according to the cut-off marks, then they can come out of the colleges in flying colours and land good jobs, said career consultant and analyst Jayaprakash Gandhi at Nani Palkhivala Kalaiarangam in Mani Higher Secondary School here on Friday.

Speaking at the career guidance programme organised by Info Institute of Engineering for the Plus 2 students who have just completed their examinations, he said “If your cut-off is above 180 marks, then choose the best college, and in case it is less than 180, then prefer the best subject.”

He said everyone now prefers Electronics and Communication. “They are surely the prospering areas. But the students should be careful in choosing the right college,” he added.

This year’s mathematics question paper was comparatively easier than last year’s, he said and added that at least four thousand students will get 100 percent marks.

Jayaprakash said the number of engineering colleges in Tamil Nadu will go up to 300 in the near future.

“So the parents should collect all details about the colleges before taking a final decision on their children’s higher education,” he said.

He also advised the parents to be careful before choosing the specialized subject for their children. “Many think their children will get a good job if they take aeronautical engineering. Actually it is wrong,” he said.

A good number of aeronautical engineers are working in communication departments now, he said and added that the parents should help their children choose the subject which has better job opportunities.

He said Material Science, Petrol Refining, Electro Chemical, Geo Informatics or Pharmaceutical Engineering are the five important subjects now and if the students take up any one of these as their speciality, then they can get good jobs easily.
