Expert faculty from LPU Department of Soft Skills guided distance education students how to sharpen themselves to be industry willing for employability.
Students were trained in practical demonstrations, role plays and real-life examples concerned with the different aspects of employability skills. Students were guided by important skills and perfected for ‘Time Management, Grooming, Etiquette, Communication Skills, CV Writing and Interview Skills’. An online provision was offered to the students to give feedback and assess the skills gained by them on the spot. Students were also offered with the content resources concerned with the topics of the workshop. Those with active participation were also felicitated.
Two of the BBA students Krishi from Ludhiana and Taruna from Patiala shared: “We always used to be repentant in not getting a proper higher education in a top institution. LPU has brought a revolutionary change in the realms of distance higher education. Like this highly beneficial workshop, we have guided on many world-class parameters also. This is the great experience we get as we never feel that we are devoid of any campus access and existence. Moreover, LPU always strives to offer us (the students of distance education) opportunities at par with its regular students. Currently, being students of LPU distance education, we feel ourselves fortunate enough in getting out of that sorry state. Long live the LPUDE programmes to benefit millions of students like us.”
