Choosing a career is not a very serious affair until 12th standard. However, once you are done with 12th, it is necessary to choose a definite career and decide a career goal. Choosing the right career, keeping the market in mind is necessary. In addition to this, selecting the right education institution is equally important. Unfortunately, many students are unable to discover their potentials and interests at this stage and this is when pressure starts building.
Therefore Wagons Skill Foundation had conducted a session on Career Counselling for students of Annasaheb Waghire Arts, Commerce & Science College.
Location & Date: Otur, Pune on September 17th, 2015.
Guest of Honour: This session was conducted by Mr. Sourabh Shah.
