Rajiv Gandhi University has launched the University Industry Interface Cell (UIIC) in 2014, one of the first Central Universities in the Country which has incorporated this cell. The primary objective of this cell is to help facilitate interface between the University and the Industry so that students get more exposure to the Industry which would help to develop their skills and in turn increase their employability.
These workshops provide an insight into what skills a student needs to pick up and what preparations one needs to make to transit smoothly into professional life and successfully work there. The transition from College to a corporate environment is a big adjustment for many graduates. Expectations and responsibilities in the workplace are very different than those in College. There are unspoken nuances and social norms that many students are completely unaware of and adjusting to a professional environment can be extremely challenging. It is important that newly passed out students are prepared for the changes and ready to adapt in order to thrive in the professional world. In this workshop, speakers from the Industry will speak on the various aspects of how the transition from Campus to Corporate i.e. professional life can be made smoother and what students need to do to increase their chances of employability in various sectors.
