With exam results being declared and college admissions season just beginning, school and junior college students and their parents can register for Hindustan Times’ Campus Calling Counselling Sessions.
These sessions will be free for students from Classes 9 to 12 and their parents at locations across the city.
A panel of career counsellors will speak for two hours on a variety of topics ranging from different career options, unconventional careers, merits of various boards and guidance with the online application system for junior college admissions.
This year 2,000 participants have registered, but many more are expected to show up. Last year 4,600 students attended the three sessions. This year, because of the increased demand, Campus Calling has expanded to six more locations, with nine sessions at various parts of the city.
At certain venues students will get a 100-careers booklet whereas the Campus Calling magazine will be available across locations.
“I’m pretty confused about whether I want to do animation, become a psychiatrist or take up law,” said Priyanka Singh, a Class 12 who has enrolled for the session to be held at Vashi. “I want to find out more about each of these career options so that I don’t regret my final decision later,” added the St Mary’s Multipurpose Junior College student.
