Career Fair-2017

On Friday, 15thSeptember 2017, Rajagiri Public school conducted  the “Career Fair-2017”.In its wide and various magnitude, it gave the opportunity for students of classes IX to XII to attend any 3 or 4 out of 15 professional areas ranging from Architecture to Sports, Travel and Tourism. Eminent professionals were invited to address the children in 15 different venues simultaneously. Children were able to either gather information about their already decided dream career or, plan their future taking into account their interest and aptitude.

Given such an opportunity, we could sense the feeling of responsibility among the children while trying to take the initiative to explore the field they wanted to pursue, brushing aside the often seen peer pressure and rigid career patterns. On demand, sessions were arranged on Civil Services as well as Pure Sciences, and a good number of students attended.
