“After brainstorming internally, we realised that students in non-metro cities and smaller towns face a lack of opportunities when it comes to quality higher education options. Also, there’s a lack of awareness about jobs and skills of the future. Thus, we decided to organise Satluj Career Fest to spread awareness about these important points and to give not only Satlujians, but students from across the region a platform to build a better future. We hope to spread awareness and make this bigger every year”, said Reekrit Serai, Director & Dean, Satluj Group of Schools.
The students were very happy to be guided by the career experts. They thanked the career experts for various career advices they had given throughout the career fest.
