He said, “Connect to Careers is an initiative of Jain University to provide employment opportunities to job aspirants providing good career counselling. We provide a space for the right job available to the right candidate with the right attitude. It is important that the student should not only focus on the package, but on the challenges the job offers, seeking to upgrade your skills according to the need of the job. This way, you can contribute as an entrepreneur, and learn more. We believe that we are offering the right platform having nobody second to us.”
Through “Career Discovery and Guidance Sessions”, students pursuing +2, final year under-graduate program, and those who have completed their under-graduate course, were invited to hear first-hand from industry and academic experts about further studies, career opportunities and about making smart career choices. A total of 9,111 students attended the education fair while 3,271 students met with their recruiters on the day.

Mr. Uruj Akhtar, Senior Manager, HR, Reliance Jio, advised students saying, “Students have to be clear with the course and career they take up and must be sure of what job profile they are looking for. They have to be serious as time and effort are put in by employers. I think this is a fantastic event as Jain University caters to the employment needs of all students and not only to its students.”
