The Career Counselling and Guidance Programmes at MNR Dental College address the diverse Socio-economic challenges and geographic back grounds of the heterogeneous population of Students coming to the college. All the students have equity of access and placement opportunities through availability of appropriate Institutional support information. Availability of such relevant information coupled with professional guidance can result in better career achievements outside class rooms and help in healthy progression of students. Generally, students have no idea of the difficulties they will face before they enter dentistry as a career. They assume that BDS will guarantee smooth career advancement, but when they finish internship, this dream breaks and they are confronted with the harsh reality of it all. If students have a career dilemma, they consult a career coach who helps them clarify their abilities, skills, interests, values, and personal stresses, and suggests possible career options that might suit their particular abilities, skills, interests, etc.
