Here is an update on seventh awareness session conducted by STC-
India education team at IEC College, Greater Noida, on Aug 31st, 2013.
Venue: IEC College, Greater Noida, UP, India
Date: Aug 31st, 2013
Number of Participants: 500+ (highest ever students in any such event)
Speakers: Rajeev Jain (Rightster) and Madhumita Sharma (Safenet)
After six successful events in Delhi-NCR based engineering and
management colleges this year, STC India Education (Rajeev Jain and
Madhumita Sharma) travelled all the way from Gurgaon and Delhi to reach
the venue which was almost 75 km away. Since STC-India team reached
much before the time, they got the opportunity to meet the IEC group
president, Mr R L Gupta and the Head-International Operations of the IEC
group, Dr Kulneet Suri. Mr Gupta showed keen interest in exploring the
possibilities of introducing technical communication at IEC University, near
After having coffee with STC-India team, Mr Gupta accompanied them to
the auditorium. The session started around 11.30 amwith a formal opening
ceremony by Mr Gupta. We were expecting around 150+ students for the
seminar but we were surprised to see almost 500+ students in the jam
packed auditorium. Rajeev Jain started the session by informing students
about the importance of:
· Technical Communication
· Career Vs Job
· Understanding the corporate expectations
During the session, Mr R L Gupta got so involved that he himself stood up
and encouraged students to reply back to the questions asked by Rajeev
and make best use of the interactive session.
Rajeev shared examples of famous Bollywood movies like Bhag Milkha
and 3-idiots. As expected, not many students were aware of technical
communication or technical writing but still many students showed keen
interest in this profession. Madhumita shared her experiences of working
as a writer and some of the key challenges faced by her. She also shared
different job opportunities available for the technical communicators.
During the interactive session, students asked many questions such as:
1. Skill set required to start a career in this field.
2. Job opportunities in this filed
3. Difference between a technical writer and a content writer.
4. The importance of creativity and ideas in this profession.
5. Growth opportunities in this profession.
6. How technical communication can help them in other fields like
construction and real estate.
The entire show was managed quite well by team of around 15 volunteers.
There were some logistic challenges and electricity kept all the volunteers
on their toes. Madhumita and Rajeev also braved through all such
challenges and kept the students engaged during those forced breaks.
After having lunch with volunteers and faculty, STC-India team left from
college around3.00 p.m.
The college management shared instant feedback and informed us that
the students were extremely happy and they found the session to be very
good, interactive, and useful. The students wanted more sessions from the
STC-India education team. College management also showed interest in
conducting another event for their MBA students at IEC University, which is
almost 300 KM away from Delhi. They have also asked for proposal to
explore the possibilities of introducing this course at their University.
Thank you Note
STC-India team would like to thank all the students, volunteers, Mr R L
Gupta, Dr Kulneet, and Supriya for providing us the opportunity to present
this session and all the arrangements.
