Online career counselling session organised by FIMT College
If you are aiming to join the media industry, you need to be a T-Shaped person, Indian Institute of Mass Communication (IIMC) director general Sanjay Dwivedi said at an online career counselling session.
Dwivedi briefed students about the working of media organisations and shared his views about the career prospects in this field.
“Today there is a need for multi-talented people in the communication sector. In corporate language, such people are known as ‘T- Shaped’. India's new education policy is also trying to increase the number of ‘T shaped’ people in the country,” Dwivedi said at the session organised by Fairfield Institute of Management and Technology (FIMT) College, Delhi.
He said opportunities are open in skill areas such as gaming, animation, multimedia, web designing and photography. Apart from journalism, students can choose other career options, which have many opportunities in production and writing for film or TV, corporate communication in the private sector and digital marketing.
Dwivedi said COVID-19 had changed the media scenario, so there are many employment opportunities for students in e-commerce and content creation in digital media companies. Apart from TV and film organisations, OTT platforms are also looking for good writers. In such a situation, there are immense employment opportunities for students who have good skills in writing.
The head of the department of the School of Journalism and Mass Communication, FIMT College, Garima Bora; assistant professor S.S. Dogra; and Jayshree Navani, principal, N.K. Bagrodia Global School also joined the session.
