A question most often faced by graduating students of any university is what to do next in life. In today’s world, there are several options available for people. However, for people with disabilities, these options may not be as widely available. This is not because there is a lack of ability but often because there is lack of information about what opportunities exist and how one can gather the required knowledge and skills to pursue a particular career path.  To address the need we are organizing a seminar on ‘Career opportunities’ in collaboration with EOC, University of Delhi on 18th November, to bridge this gap.

 There are skilled jobs available after graduation in various streams. These include: 

  • Advertising, Film, Media & Mass Communication

  • Banking, Finance & Commerce

  • Management

  • Physical Education & Sports

  • Arts, Law & Language

  • Fashion, Textile & Accessory Design

  • Medical, Pharmacy & Health Care Services

  • Computer Applications (Web design, Animation)

  • Tourism, Hospitality & Aviation

  • Architecture

  • Teaching

  • Higher Education & Research

  • Administration.

  • Soft skills (careers in BPO, KPO)

 This is not an exhaustive list and can include other streams as well. The seminar will focus on career opportunities available to people with disabilities and the assistance available towards pursuing the same. There will be speakers from the disability sector who are working to create job opportunities for people with disabilities. There will a perspective shared on the issues that women with disability face when choosing careers. Speakers will also include people with disabilities who are today successful in their respective areas of work. Other speakers will include career counselors and experts from various fields. The sessions will be interactive and informative with the aim of addressing the concerns that students may have regarding their potential future careers.
