21st CENTURY CAREERS AT MANASKRITI
The pandemic introduced us to a new world order which is based upon making opportunities from where we are rather than where the opportunity is!
The opportunities were home tailored and we saw the world benchmarking a new milestone in their evolutionary process.
The 21st Century has a new outlook with the endless opportunities for work. It is for this reason that we thought of navigating the paths of our students. Our ultimate aim being raising phenomenal individuals who can cut across the borders of “ I, me, myself” into a world which goes beyond these words and becomes WE !
We are very thankful to Ms Ambika Vasudev and Ms Pooja Gupta who cleared many myths regarding the future career options for the young minds!!
The main aim of career counseling is to help students choose a field that is in tune with their skills and their potential. Thus, with professional help, most students end up choosing the right career and perform their level best, which ultimately helps them succeed. Manaskriti would be organizing a career counseling session for its students of grades 8 and 9 on 2nd February. We are honored to have @ambikavasudev and @poojagupta to conduct this session at Manaskriti.
