To follow up with the graduates of CCS seminars and the internship and to make sure they do not forget us, we conduct an annual profiling of seminar participants and interns.
We will first request all seminar participants and interns of 2004 batch to fill the first Profiling Questionnaire. Then 5 coordinators from five zones across the country will conduct a detailed profiling with the respondents.
Swati Chawla (LACS Graduate 2004) will be the National Coordinator. She will coordinate with the regional coordinators and also prepare the final report.
If you have attended a CCS seminar or worked with CCS as an intern in 2004 , please download the Profile 1 and fill in the first Profiling Questionnaire latest by June 30! The regional coordinators will contact you in July for the detailed profiling either in person if possible or by phone.
