Career Progression Team

(Where we endeavour at shaping your future)

Career development is the process of improving an individual’s abilities in anticipation of future opportunities for achieving career objectives. Career development consists of skills, education and experiences as well as behavioral modification and refinement techniques that allow individuals to work better and add value. It’s a formal approach taken by institutions to help learners, acquire the skills and experiences needed to perform future jobs. Career development focuses on enabling people to understand and develop their skills and preferences to manage occupational challenges, make good decisions about their working lives, and maximise their contribution to the communities in which they live and work. Whereas, Campus placement or campus recruiting is a program conducted within educational institutions to provide jobs to students nearing completion of their studies. In this type of program, the educational institutions partner with corporations who wish to recruit from the student population. Career Progression Team at Smt.
