Sikh Career Day Promotes Career Advancement

On March 19, 2011, Sikh youths in Queens, NY attended a full day of workshops and panel discussions on how to decide upon and find employment in their desired career field(s).  Sikh Career Day was held at Gurdwara Richmond Hill Cultural Society and was developed by the Sikh Coalition, in collaboration with Sikh professionals working in New York City.

The event provided these youths with the opportunity to meet Sikh professionals working in their fields of interest.  In addition, the youths attended comprehensive workshops on resume building, interviewing and networking, along with a panel discussion on making career decisions. The volunteer Sikh professionals represented a range of careers including engineering, sales, finance, business, information technology, management, non-profit, strategy, medicine, art, photography, television and law. One-on-one career advice was also available, and the youths were encouraged to keep in touch with the professionals they had met.

Sikh Career Day stemmed from a series of College Preparation workshops previously given in Queens, with the intent of providing guidance and support to Sikh youth making tough career decisions.  For further information on how to get involved with this initiative, please contact Tejpreet Kaur at tejpreet@sikhcoalition.org.
