Many students, during the course of their education, have doubts and apprehensions about their career. These doubts range from the choice of a proper career path to the way they should behave in a corporate environment. Doubts like these can only be clarified by having an identification of their own interests, followed by a glimpse of how their interests are transformed into a career path inside the corporate.
We at TCS, after a careful analysis of the existing trends, have observed that the queries of many students are still going unanswered. Though we conduct a number of workshops and interactive sessions across the globe, the scale of the events and the large number of students participating therein make it difficult for us to handle the queries of every single student. We also felt a need to improve the soft skills of students so that they can find the transition into the corporate smooth and seamless. In order to ensure that these gaps are filled, we have come up with a platform called Campus Commune.
Campus Commune helps the students
Campus Commune features many sections like Just Ask, Polls & Debates, Discussion Boards, Challenges, and Blogs that help the students interact in all possible ways. Just Ask, as the name indicates, is a place where students ask questions and get answers from peers, and experts from TCS. Polls & Debates, and Discussion Boards help the students express their opinion and also gain an understanding of an issue from different perspectives. Blogs are where students post their learning on topics that would benefit the entire community, and the Challenges section is where we list out problem statements, seek solutions and award bounty to innovative ideas. All these activity centers working in perfect harmony constitute this elegant platform. We have observed that students making good use of our portal were not only able to develop themselves on multiple fronts, but were also able to make the right career choice to excel in the IT industry. Given that you now have access to such an exciting platform, it’s your turn to make the full use of its potential to secure a bright future full of exciting opportunities.
TCS Campus Commune is a place where students get to interact with peers and TCSers. It helps the students stay informed about the company and also gives them a means to hold thoughtful discussions on a variety of topics.
Interactions on the platform happen through Channels — interest based spaces to discuss topics ranging from technology to interview-related help. The platform also hosts exciting contests related to various engineering, tech, and business domains.
