A way to facilitate students in COVID-19-tension

Students pursuing Bachelor-level, PG and Master-level classes in Colleges under various Universities in Nepal are in shock because of COVID-19-generated tensions.

They appear particularly stressed over issues like

1 continuity (or discontinuity) of their classes
2 maintaining (or inability to sustain) their acquired course- related- knowledge/skills in absence of prolonged teacher’s guidance or access to appropriate learning materials

3 promotion (or lingering in same class) to upper level-semester
4 sitting for exams (or facing prolonged uncertainty about them)
5 paying (or not paying) fees (dues) for education due to parental inability forced by loss of their income
6 fear of being disadvantaged (or lagging behind peers) because of their personal (family) backdrop, geographical location, accessibility to ICT and financial ability

In addition to those tensions, students also encounter challenges to re-shape daily life, thinking, behavior, game-way, relationship-pattern, peer-gossiping, leisure-engagement, recreation –modality for keeping their health (cognitive, physical, mental, attitudinal and emotional) intact.

Those worries are really tall for youths in their adolescence. They cannot tackle them themselves. Parents and Colleges cannot respond to those tensions by themselves. They need support from all stakeholders of education. Government, Universities and financiers should join hands first to understand the agonizing problems biting students and then undertake suitable measures to support them. If this is not done there is risk of outbreak of depression among youths which will prove more dangerous than the virus which forced the strategy of lock-down and stay at home over the past month or so.

Urgent measures to respond to the situation could be

1 Guaranteeing continuity of education at all levels as per University calendar
2 Ensuring access to teachers concerned for keeping students’ knowledge/skills refreshed
3 Assuring promotion to upper level (on the basis of internal assessment of Colleges concerned or short cut but safe and standard mode of examination under appropriate supervision)
4 Aiding students and also Colleges financially under an adequate, transparent modality to continue their functions in modified ways
5 Counseling for reshaping way of life during and after COVID-19 crisis

The measures cannot be taken in accordance with the prevailing rules and regulations of Colleges and Universities for the situation is unprecedented. Universities and Colleges, high decision makers, planners and policy makers and other stakeholders of education, should therefore work out an emergency-strategy for changing rules and regulations for coping with the crisis. They cannot take long for developing such a strategy. They do not have any option either. Negligence in this regard could be disastrous for higher education sector in this regard.

History of Nepal indicates that stakeholders of education particularly higher education have at times promptly and appropriately responded to the challenges emerging suddenly in the country with a sense of responsibility and urgency.

All hope the same will be replicated this time and the youths punched today by tensions will find relief. A new era could emerge out of the confusion and strains inflicted by the COVID-19.

5 Helpful Tips to Get the Most Out of Your Internship in Nepal

The dreadful cycle of ‘you need the experience to gain experience’ lives on – and this is where internships come in. However, not all internship programs in Nepal can help you gain valuable experience. The effectiveness of an internship in Nepal also depends on whether you’re able to make the most out of it or not.

This, however, does not mean that you work day in and out, and work yourself to the bone. In fact, a study found that characteristics of the job, like feedback, as well as characteristics of the work environment like learning opportunities, were the best predictors of internship effectiveness.

To learn more about doing an internship in Nepal, read on:

Get battle-ready!

Before starting your internship in Nepal, it’s important that you prepare ahead. Do your own research on the company you’re applying for, its policies, product portfolio, among others. After all, you don’t want to make a rookie mistake by seeming unprepared. You see, when you’re all geared up with the basics, you’ll feel confident – and not just sound like it.

In addition, before you start your internship in Nepal, consider your attire. We’re pretty sure that you have heard the saying, “You only get one chance to make a first impression”. In a professional setting, this primarily comes in terms of your appearance.

In fact, the way you dress says a lot about your personality and affects your performance and self-outlook. Maybe it’s in the sophisticated fold of your tie. Or maybe it’s in the prompt click of your heels. Or perhaps, it’s in the immaculate shine of your shoes. Whatever it is, ensure that you dress the part for your internship in Nepal.

Display good work ethic during your internship

What most applicants of internship in Nepal often forget is good a work ethic. Maybe you think you have what it takes – impressive resume, magnetic personality, and extraordinary talents. However, all of this will be for nothing if you have a poor work ethic.

Utmost punctuality is a good way to begin your internship in Nepal – especially since the Nepalese usually prefer their own ‘Nepali time’. Be punctual to a fault: Show up early for meetings, complete tasks within the set deadlines, and be proactive. Take on more work than they expect from you. Why? Employers who provide internships in Nepal are appreciative of hard work. This way, they will value your work during your internship in Nepal.

Network

An internship in Nepal can give you the hands-on experience you need – but that’s not all. Given the importance of networking, your internship experience isn’t just about what you know, but who you know. The insights you gain during your internship in Nepal will be meaningless if you can’t capitalize on the exposure. It can be a great way to make new connections and build rapport.

Don’t be afraid to step outside of your comfort zone. You don’t have to make any grand gestures right away. Start small – wave at someone, say hello and try to make small talk. That guy you complimented in the elevator? He could be the next Marketing Head. That girl you talked to near the water dispenser? She could be the next CEO. In order to build relationships, all it takes is your initiative.

Don’t hesitate to ask questions during your Internship in Nepal!

Your internship in Nepal is an opportunity for you to learn after all! Try not to quell your curiosity during the process – asking questions isn’t dumb. In essence, asking the right questions shows that you’re willing to learn more. Think less about the answers you’ll get, and more on the things you’re missing. No one at your internship in Nepal will hand you everything on a silver platter. You’ll need to read between the lines if you want to make the most out of it.

Now you might think, “What if asking too many questions make me look inexperienced and stupid?”

Let go of that thought. There’s nothing wrong with being an amateur. Let your superiors think of you as an inexperienced beginner, and ask them to teach you. In the end, you’re doing an internship in Nepal to learn.

Reflect

Your internship experience can be a great means of self-reflection. For this, you should consider documenting your eureka moments, slip-ups and lessons throughout your internship in Nepal. Keep track of your progress. Moreover, consider building a portfolio of your work for future reference.

Furthermore, ask for feedback on a daily basis. Why? From the company’s point of view, it shows that you’re taking an initiative to learn and improve. For you, well, it helps you work on your shortcomings during your internship in Nepal. Another benefit of this self-reflection is that, when looking back, you might realize that this career path isn’t the right one for you. Despite that, the experience you gain from your internship in Nepal won’t go to waste.

International Internship | 5 Reasons why you should do it

Here’s a harsh reality: You need experience to get experience.

Finding a job as a fresher can be hard, especially when employers are looking for young graduates with 10 years of experience. This is a bit of an exaggeration, but it’s truly difficult to beat this vicious cycle of ‘experience to get experience’.

The solution? Internships!

Internships are great because they work both ways. For the companies, it’s like a trial period to test your potential. For you, it can be a hands-on experience to learn and explore. After all, as Helen Hayes puts it, “The expert at anything was once a beginner.”

In addition, a study found that an internship program – especially an international internship – can be a fruitful way for you to align your work with your interests, values and strengths. This helps you find a deeper sense of purpose in your work. This means that you’re ten times more likely to have a higher overall wellbeing.

Here are more reasons why you should do an international internship:

Broaden your skill set

It’s a given that an internship can help you gain some skills – be it hard or soft. For a Digital Marketing Intern, your hard skills can be technical, job-related skills like ability to use Google Analytics, SEM Marketing, Google Search Console, among others. On the other hand, your soft skills include interpersonal skills, leadership, work ethic, and such.

However, with an international internship, this opportunity to broaden your skill set just becomes more lucrative. How? You see, an internship abroad means that you’ll work with people from around the world. Gradually, you’ll be able to build valuable skills like intercultural communication, cultural training, and adaptability. Furthermore, during your international internship, you’ll gain a new perspective of the world as a whole, and think differently from the rest.

Take the International Association for the Exchange of Students for Technical Experience (IAESTE) for instance. With over 86 member countries exchanging over 4000 job offers annually, it provides a distinct platform for international internships. In essence, this worldwide reach and collective experience can help students like you to broaden your skill set. In the case of Nepal, KCC acts as a local committee that runs the international internship programs for IAESTE in the country.

Build a global network

An international internship simply means that you’ll be able to build a global network of friends and colleagues. The thing is, the network you build from your internship abroad can help you seek different opportunities, learn more about the current trends, and even gain some inside information about the industry you’re working in, and much more.

This is the beauty of international internships. You can leverage your global network to land a job in international organizations and get a headstart in your career.

An opportunity to see the world

What’s better than a good internship? The answer: A good internship that wants you to travel!

Admit it: Your international internship is just another opportunity for you to travel and see the world in all its glory. Internships are generally a challenge after all; plus, with international internships, you’ll have to start from scratch. From getting settled to connecting with a diverse group of people – an internship abroad will have a huge impact on you and your life. What’s more is that you’ll learn new things, indulge in newer experiences, and expand your cross-cultural understanding.

Stand out

One of the most significant benefits of an internship abroad is the footprint it leaves on your resume. Sure, an internship at a well-established local company can give you something to take away. Nevertheless, an international internship from a foreign company will definitely get recruiters talking about you.

You see, there are thousands of freshers who graduate alongside you. So, the competition is fierce. How do you make yourself stand out? Well, if you join an international internship program, you’ll have something that those thousands don’t have – the experience of living and working in a foreign country. This is exactly what it means to stand out from the crowd.

Grow as a person

As Neale Donald Walsch eloquently puts it: “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.”

Taking up an international internship means that you’ll have to leave the comfort of your cocoon, and get ready to spread your wings. With an international internship, you’ll be exposed to culturally challenging situations that will groom you as an exceptional individual. From learning a new language, adapting to the new culture to working at international standards – you’ll undoubtedly have to face adversity.

But, if you take this as an opportunity to improve, you’ll be able to build your confidence, learn a foreign language, and eventually become independent.

The Perks of Pursuing Computer Engineering in Nepal

Computer Engineering in Nepal

Before we begin, let us roll out a couple of scenarios. We’re going out on a limb to say that you can certainly relate to this.

The WiFi at your home is weak. Your family is annoyed, so they ask you to fix it since you’re like the ‘Techie’ at home. All you do is reset the router, which somehow makes them believe that you ‘fixed the internet’.

Something similar happens yet again. Your father needs help setting up his business account. Maybe your mom needs help transferring money via e-Sewa. Or maybe your little sister needs help with her presentation. In all of these scenarios, they come to you, the family’s IT Person.

Our point here is, your familiarity or interest in IT could be one of the many reasons why you chose to pursue a degree in computer engineering in Nepal.

Civil Engineering in Nepal: Here’s why you should pursue it

Civil Engineering in Nepal

If you remember the stories from your childhood, then you probably know the story of the Three Little Pigs. Well, the one where two pigs with weak houses (one made of straw and the other made of sticks) get defeated by the Big Bad Wolf. Remember the hero of this story? The pig with the strong house made of bricks outplayed the wolf.

This bedtime story actually has an underlying meaning that shows you the importance of civil engineering. You see, without civil engineers to plan and build strong infrastructure, we’d undoubtedly be susceptible to construction catastrophes. A civil engineer truly is an unsung hero, which makes this field a vital area of study. Especially in developing countries like Nepal, this subject has a broader scope. Simply put, civil engineering in Nepal is in the spotlight – and for the right reasons:

Information Age

With the advent of the Internet in the 1970s came the onset of the Information Age – an era of fiber optics, microprocessors and Artificial Intelligence (AI). From education to health, technology has been ingrained into every sector, and its role has only broadened over time. For a student pursuing BIT in Nepal, this means that you’re always in demand.

Take the example of Health Information System (HIS), which is seen as an integral component of cardiovascular surveillance system in Nepal. Technology like this is only expected to evolve, and its prospect in Nepal is promising. As explained in an article, from blockchain technology, education to medicine, Nepal is a growing technology hub. Plus, with the influx of tech start-ups like UXCam, Picovico, Yellow Nepal, e-Satya, the prospect of BIT in Nepal seems even more lucrative. Thus, with a BIT in Nepal, you can tap into this potential and establish a successful career in this field.

Career prospects

What makes BIT in Nepal even more hopeful is the career opportunity and pay grade that comes with it. The thing is, IT jobs are here to stay. In fact, the Future of Jobs Report shows that by 2022, companies are likely to adopt technologies that require definitive qualifications that come with a BIT.

With a BIT course, you can graduate and work as an IT consultant, cloud architect, software engineer, web developer, data administrator, among others. The pay? To take an example, the average annual salary of a Web Developer in Nepal is NPR 1,111,700. Now this is a tempting deal. Furthermore, computer jobs like software developers, are one of the fastest growing jobs, which shows the viable future of BIT in Nepal.

Explore other fields

With a BIT in Nepal, you’ll also be flexible in terms of your future educational pursuits. For instance, if IT is your field of interest, you can pursue Master’s degrees like MCA, MSc.IT, among others. If not, you can also pursue advanced degrees like MBA, MAMCJ, MS in E-Commerce, etc.

Furthermore, with a BIT in Nepal, you’ll have the opportunity to work with people from different cultures. This means that you’ll eventually be able to form an international network of contacts, which you can later connect with to help with your career.

Flexibility

If you think that with a BIT in Nepal, you’ll be trapped in a room writing complex code during your office hours, then you’re completely wrong. Unlike popular belief, a graduate with BIT in Nepal has a greater flexibility when it comes to work. In the context of Nepal, homegrown and foreign companies have multiplied to meet the software and design needs of customers at home and abroad. With several home-based IT companies outsourcing their services, they’ve adopted a more flexible working style.

In addition, as a resulting benefit of work flexibility, it will also lead to better teamwork. You see, when you work in a team, you bring out the best in each other, as well as hone your existing skills. Maybe you completed your BIT in Nepal and are now a software developer, and someone in your team is a graphic designer. In this instance, you can complement each other’s work through collaborative teamwork, and maybe learn some graphic designing along the way.
