                         INTRODUCTION

The phrase “professional skills” is used in the broad sense to
describe skills that complement the disciplinary knowledge
and disciplinary technical skills that remain the most important
aspects of any graduate training. By skills we mean behaviors that
can be learned, that can be improved with practice, that require
Reflection and that benefit from ongoing coaching. There is no
doubt that there already exists considerable expertise and
opportunities for professional skills development across
universities. Of course there are variations in how, what, or how
much is available and there are very few, if any, institutions which
have the resources to provide complete coverage of these skills to
their students. PSDP is an idea to provide the students who are
going to be graduated soon with skills and capabilities they have
but don’t know how to use. This program is to develop their
professional skills, competencies which need to be polish before
going to the world of professionalism. As we know that when a
graduate completes his degree he needs the experience as
required by the employers of any firm where he/she applies for
the job, so question arises here that “from where to get
Experience as he/she graduated recently?” so the answer is
“internships” the internships are the “Period of supervised
training required for qualifying for a profession. It follows a
specified number of academic credits or classroom years.” So how
to search for the internships, after attending this training program
PSDP the audience will be aware of how to hunt for the job and
where to find the job, which sources should be used to find the
job. And this program will also make them aware that how to be
an employer, how to adopt entrepreneurial skills, how to
communicate within the workplace, how to make attractive

Curriculum vitae’s to impress the HRM officer of the particular
company. And this program will train them to how to manage an
office, how to solve conflicts within an organization, how to
manage time to work and to take rest, how to relax yourself from
the workload stress. And this program will also enable them how
to find scholarships and fellowships for their further studies
locally or internationally they want to carry on. But as my belief is
“the efforts are the keys to open the locks for your luck”.
