The Campus Calling session organised by Hindustan Times in association with Young Buzz kicked off its second week with more than 870 students and parents in attendance.
The three-hour session, which was held at Bhaidas Sabhagriha in Vile Parle, had counsellors from Young Buzz giving students an insight into a range of careers (in the arts, science and commerce fields).
Asha Bhagtiani, who had come for the session said, “I have just appeared for SSC, and I was quite confused about which field to get into.” Her father, Vashdev Bhagtiani added, “This is a relief for my daughter. It's made things clearer and simpler.”
The counsellors enumerated not only the careers available after school level, but also gave a brief explanation about what kind of work and personality skills each profession would require.
“Thanks to the session, I got to understand the scope of so many more upcoming careers and even the best colleges to apply to,” said Smruti Khara, a parent.
The counseling session was followed by a question answer round. The career counselling session is scheduled for two venues today, from 10 am to 1 pm at BN Vaidya Sabhagriha, Dadar (East), and Prabodhankar Thackeray Hall, Borivli (West).
Registration for the session is free.
