The objective is to prepare women students for entering the job market. The NCW kickstarted its first program today after collaborating with the Central University of Haryana. Smt. Rekha Sharma, NCW Chairperson, has inaugurated the program. She said that there is a dire need of more women leaders in every field and the course will propel women to become good leaders.

“Women have proven their mettle in every field. We want more women leaders who, in their journey of empowerment will enable other women to come forward and achieve economic independence. NCW, through this course, will help the students at every step of their employment including resume making and facing interviews and prepare them to face all the challenges with confidence,” said Ms Sharma.

Giving details about the course, she said that the course has been divided into three categories; Personal Capacity Building, Professional Career Skills and Digital Literacy and Effective Use of Social Media.

  • The Personal Capacity Building session will impart students with skills such as time management, stress management, and communication.
  • The Professional Career Skills session will teach women how to identify career opportunities, build resume and presentation skills and empower women students in exploring career opportunities for themselves considering their innate strengths and weaknesses.
  • The objective of the third session on Digital Literacy and Effective Use of Social Media is to generate awareness among women on safe usage of the internet and safe practices on social media platforms. It will also raise awareness about cybercrimes among women and how to prevent and tackle them.

Once the three sessions are completed, students will take an online quiz organized through MyGov with an aim to test their understanding of the subject which will be based on the booklet/ training sessions conducted under the program. On completion of the quiz, all the participants will receive certificates. She also said that the top 25 participants will be provided with a ‘Certificate of Commendation’ signed by National Commission For Women, MyGov and the Head of the Institute.
