What a Final Year Student Must Do Amidst COVID-19 to Get Ready for Future Placements
From quarantine to class disruption, the year 2020 is the hardest test for academia and students.
What does the future hold for the students?
In a matter of 3 months, coronavirus (COVID-19) has changed how millions of students are educated around the world. Those changes give us a hint at how education could transform – in the long and short term.
In the past few weeks, there have been multiple announcements by the Government of India to lockdown Schools and Universities. These changes have certainly caused a degree of inconvenience, but they have also prompted new examples of educational innovation. However, all is not lost, there are signs suggesting that it could have a lasting impact on the trajectory of learning innovation and digitization.
Given this uncertainty, students and parents have been looking to Universities as a source of information, reassurance, and direction. At Rungta Group of Institutions, we believe in the power of ‘adaptability. We are ensuring that ‘learning never stops’.
Career planning is not locked down!
QS recently established an ongoing survey of higher education professionals which says, 50% of the survey respondents had already switched to courses online, and we predict this number is only set to increase as the Pandemic continues. Higher Institutes like Rungta have introduced online course classes and counseling sessions for students to help offset the impact of Institute closure. Rungta Business Incubator (RUBI) has developed an e-learning tool TOODLE to offer our students with ongoing learning wherein they can use multiple features to continue learning. We are moving from a lecture-listen model to an interactive, learn-by-doing model. Join TOODLE and get access to:
One of the best things our Institution has done to support parents and students is streamlining information by creating one place for all the assignments, schedules and expectations. We are available on Zoom and Toodle to help you with non-stop learning.
The Government plan of action for student’s career
Feeling a lack of control is enough to make anyone anxious. And while things will continue to feel this way for a while longer, there are some actions you can take today to gain control of your career. Your career may or may not be at the forefront of your mind at the moment depending on your circumstances, it needs to be managed both for now and for the post-lockdown scenario. Companies withdrawing job opportunities and colleges postponing campus placement drive, is enough for students to feel dizzy.
But, there’s a gleam of hope.
|“The present crisis is temporary and the government is taking measures to tackle the menace”Ramesh Pokhriyal, HRD Minister|
In his appeal, HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal issued a public appeal to all campus recruiters asking them not to withdraw jobs offered to the graduating students of technical education institutions. As far as higher education institutions are concerned, most institutes ensure a break in May, after finishing exams by April. The new session begins between late July and early August. Entrance exam schedule will be re-scheduled and the new announcement of dates will be possible only after the situation normalizes.
Students must help recruiters
With schools, Universities, GD-WAT-PIs, internships, and jobs are delayed indefinitely, the situation may look grim for aspirants, it is also an opportunistic time to build up on your skills. Students can access e-learning sites to built their learning skills and creativity, with classes like mastering English, entrepreneurial skills, time-management skills, communication skills, how to make a winning Presentation and lots more. This is the time to educate yourself and get as much information as you can to be a job-ready individual. There’s a huge wealth of information, grasp it all you can.

While it may seem fun to study from home, it can be challenging to keep to a regular schedule. Some things that can help include:

Now is the time to propel forward in your career by considering all avenues of your career plan and strategically planning your next move.We are well suited to capture the wave.
