Introduction to Career Development Center:
One of the main objective of University education in its early age was to create new knowledge and come up with innovative ideas through research and study. Accordingly, its activities, at that time, were mainly to do research and teaching. But now a days, the concept of a University has changed a lot due to social demand as well as to meet requirements of business and economic development. What’s more, one of the professional as well as ethical responsibilities of a modern University is to guide and advise students on how to develop their future career. In fact, Career Development Center (CDC) of State University of Bangladesh (SUB) has been trying to fulfill that responsibility by extending support to SUB students in the form of training, seminars, workshops, fests & exhibitions, conferences, counseling, grooming sessions etc.
In view of the above, the CDC of SUB has been trying to extend useful practical ideas, knowledge and skills to SUB students. Previously, the focus of CDC services was mainly focused to internship and job placements, believing the student’s main career target was service. But recently the Center has taken the initiative to develop its students as entrepreneurs as well. Accordingly, the Center has introduced various new training courses and other programs in the field of business and entrepreneurship also.
The CDC believes that the most effective tools in competing in the jobmarket are developing students with quality knowledge and skills, especially soft skills which highlight their other abilities and competencies. Therefore the Center is also working for soft skill development programs. Finally the Center is involved with research activities, public-private partnership, women development, international collaboration etc.
In all, the CDC is committed to helping with satisfying and profitable career for all SUB students either as job seekers or as entrepreneurs who will create jobs for others.
