Hunting in the College Campus

Before this Monsoon ends, some graduating students from colleges under the aegis of RUB would find themselves joining some companies in the country, provided that they impress the interviewers and some form of luck is in their favor.

Some corporations in Bhutan find themselves saving a lot of time, money and effort going through a hectic recruitment process, thanks to the campus recruitment initiative. It is proving to be beneficial both to the graduates who are offered the jobs on the spot and the companies that hire them. It is beneficial to the graduates in a sense that they no longer have to search for a job in an already shrinking job market and that as soon as they finish their studies, they have jobs; thereby reducing family pressure. And for the companies that hire them, apparently they no longer have to go through a nightmarish recruitment process, but they still get to hire the best candidates – a win-win situation!

There are chances, however, that some students would end up in wrong places only to regret later. Some will accept the offer because they really want to work for a particular company. That’s good! Some will accept the offer out of sheer pressure, which does not bode well both for the company and the graduates. Therefore, some careful attention needs to be paid by both the parties so that everyone is happy at the end of the day. And having come through the same channel, I think I am in this position to comment. But my suggestions are to be taken only at face value.

Before the end of this month (June), a group of companies in the country will enter the gates of Gaeddug College to hunt for their prospective candidates. We wish all the participating companies and the graduates very best of luck in all their endeavors.

Utpal Academy - Bhutan's first All-girls High School

Welcome to Bhutan’s first all-girls school. Isn’t that wonderful news to all our parents? Certainly, as a parent of a one-year old daughter I am excited about the coming of a school exclusively dedicated to the needs of girls. Our girls need special treatment, which we can for sure entrust the responsibility to Utal Academy, Paro.
I really like the name – Utpal – in Buddhist world, Utpal is another name for lotus flower, which is believed to grow from mud and yet blossoms into a beautiful and majestic flower. It stands for purity and many deities are depicted holding flower Utpal, more prominently Jestusn Dolma, the Goddess Tara. Symbolically, it also stands for the transformation of our girls. What an apt name for the school!
The Principal’s message posted on the academy’s website promises providing our young women an “opportunity to participate fully in a wide range of extracurricular activities to develop skills and qualities that will lead to successful and fulfilling life.” That’s…

King Khesar is the People's King

He is a king who finds pleasure in combing every part of the country to meet his people and hear their plights. He is a king who treasures the nation’s young people and finds time to share golden moments with young graduates entering the job market. He is a king who goes out of his way to inspire our leaders with his invaluable wisdom. He is a king who is the first leader to console his people when natural disasters strike them and who takes time to share important news to his people. He is a perfect role model to the young people, a dutiful son, caring father, and a champion of “kindness, justice and equality”. Druk Gyalpo Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck is the People’s King!

In his heart-warming coronation speech to the nation, His Majesty made the following promise, “Throughout my reign I will never rule you as a King. I will protect you as a parent, care for you as a brother and serve you as a son. I shall give you everything and keep nothing; I shall live such a life as a good hum…

So what is the secret?

Cost of living in Thimphu is extremely high. No doubt about that. How do we ascertain it? When mid-level office-goers find it difficult to survive. But then it makes me wonder how those people who live on the daily national minimum wage of Nu. 125/day make their ends meet. Is this a serious mismatch between what we spend and earn? 
Looks like, some of us need to meet these people and benefit from their knowledge of survival. Maybe that way some of us can even save a few hundreds. If these people can very well manage their families and exactly match their expenses with the incomes that they earn, why do we need to go far for MBAs while we can do that right here on our doorstep? 
Of course, MBA is your qualification and does not necessarily reflect in the way you manage your everyday family affairs. 

Being greedy and not eating enough is different from making ends meet and also being in a position to save some for bad weather days. I certainly marvel at the people who live on 100 plus ngul…
