However one important advice to students and all to be professionals in general, is to begin networking and build relationships

Networking is the art of building contacts, personal and professional, for engagement, personal enrichment and professional growth. Your network could and must consist of your peers, professors, professionals of domain interest, seniors, members of your alumni association, and all those you interact with in a professional/ semi-professional context. These could include guest speakers, placement representatives and various other people of interest you meet as you work towards your degree. Note that networking need not be an act of selfishness or something with an ulterior motive. It is an enriching multi-way process that benefits all those involved in terms of references and knowledge exchange.

Just think about this. Your classmate or batchmate from your institution would hold a position of importance in an organisation you would like to perhaps shift to. If you are in touch with him/ her, you have a great opportunity to get a referral as you plan your career shift. It could be the same if you need to get a referral from a professor you knew if you plan to pursue higher education.

In fact most international studies prove that those who are good at networking manage their career transitions in terms of job shifts and mid-life career challenges better when compared with those who don’t.

DSCASC is an excellent platform for students to begin and perfect their people networking skills and perfect them – a habit that will help them throughout their careers. The institution attracts focused, ambitious students, competent, dedicated faculty, reputed companies for placements and noted speakers and industry experts who often share their views on the industry. This apart, the institution has an excellent alumni association that is vast, well established and willing to guide and help. With such an invigorating platform to start with, students are assured of excellent careers and enriching relationships if they take their first steps towards building lasting relationships.
