The opportunities for an English graduate are vast. In order to educate students on their employment opportunities, Brainware University invited Dr. Ruchi Sharma, Assistant Professor, Chitkara University, to present in a webinar titled “Exploring New Horizons of Career with English Studies” on 13th September, 2022.
The webinar started with an opening address by Dr. Poulomi Mitra (HOD, Department of English and Literary Studies, Brainware University). The webinar was attended by 70+ students of BA and MA English. Dr. Ruchi Sharma, throughout her webinar, emphasized the diverse opportunities available to the English student. She cleared away the miasma of misconception surrounding careers for students of English studies as being limited to teaching or scholarly work. From content writing, public service to web content analysts, the global opportunities open to an English student globally, are diverse.
The webinar ended with a Q&A session where the speaker Dr. Ruchi Sharma clarified many of the confusions and quarries of the students. It was a positive experience for the students. They learned of the new opportunities available to them with the changing times and they look forward to further interactions with Dr. Sharma.
