The Yuvak Mandal, of the BAPS, organized the first ever Professional Development Seminar, which was a great success. The number of people attending the seminar exceeded the organizer's expectations.
The goal of the seminar was to assist people of all age in the development of their careers. The seminar covered subjects as varied as the status of the IT industry skills are most sought out by employers, to writing resumes, methods of finding jobs in a tough market, and interviewing techniques. The intention of this seminar was to help students understand what skills employers are seeking in the IT field, as well as, providing professionals with skills necessary in landing the prefect job.
The presenters for this forum were Paras Shah, CEO and John Cohen VP, both of Zen and Art. Zen and Art is an IT management consulting company based out of New Jersey, whose clients are Fortune 500 companies.
The Yuvak Mandal will be organizing development seminars on a bi-monthly basis in various industry sectors. Our next seminar will be held May 18, 2002 focusing on financial investments. The yuvak mandal also has weekly meetings, held at the BAPS mandir in Edison, NJ, every Sunday from 3:00-4:00 PM.
