Following the western concept of making the students economically independent, Vidyasagar College Central Library, Kolkata motivates the students to adopt its programme titled “Earn While You Learn”. The initiative is having a pronged impact. Students may earn some extra pocket money while on the other, they may able to acquire work experience and hands-on training while studying, something that is missing in our education system. This also helps the students to gain a firsthand experience of the job environment and thereby develop their self confidence and personality. Accordingly, the students are encouraged to take up part-time jobs after completing their regular classes or during holidays which would enhance their personal rating at the time of final placements.
