The Mushtaq Ahmad Gurmani School of Humanities and Social Sciences (MGSHSS) recently held a session for its students to meet CEOs of different companies from different industries. The disucssion was on the importance of skills that undergraduates must possess when entering the job market—from skills that comprise personality traits such as passion, compassion, empathy, and hard work to skills like research writing, editing, communicating effectively, etc. The agenda for the session was to remove uncertainties from students’ minds and to encourage them to broaden their portfolios with courses that are not just specific to their skills but those that open up minds and encourage out-of-the-box thinking. The CEOs talked about diversity and the importance of undergraduates seeking out humanities and social sciences courses to develop a critical skillset. The session was well-attended and was the first of many to come.
