The prime thrust of every education system lies towards career building of aspirants. In this techno-linguistic post-modern age, shaping of career from its inception to its perfection is an uphill task which needs a thorough planning , professional counseling and expert training.

We at R.K.S.D (P.G.) College Kaithal aim to become a leading institution of India, bridging the gap between academic excellence in higher education and the needs of career opportunities in industry. The Career Guidance and Counseling Cell continues to engage the students in various informative career-oriented sessions, panel discussions, one on one interactive session to enhance the student’s competencies in self-knowledge, educational and occupational exploration & career planning. Specific inputs and instructions are given to the students regarding career choices aligned to their passion/interests which help them to fulfill their career goals.  We facilitate students for goal settings, positive interaction, multiple intelligence, self awareness, IQ, EQ, leadership qualities, inter personal and intra personal relationships. We motivate and encourage students for interaction, articulation and exploration. We engage students in activities to realise their interest areas, aspirations and pursue them as a career.
