  • Sailaja wished the fair had organised parents' sessions, too

    Rajahmundry: Girl students from different colleges thronged the `Women Economic Empowerment' fair held at SKR Women's College here on Wednesday. The Fair and Lovely Foundation arranged for counsellors to provide guidance for the students.

    There was tremendous response from the girl students who were given tips on career planning and setting of goals, healthcare and biosciences, different courses in Engineering and Information Technology, Management and Finance. They were also provided information regarding opportunities in the Business Processing Organisation (BPO) industry.

    Social worker Jakkampudi Vijayalakshmi inaugurated the fair in the morning. Event Manager Md. Jahangir, along with counsellors Sri Vidya, Meena, Vishnu Priya, Sunita and PR in-charge Pratima Chauhan, organised various informative programmes.

    "Nowadays, learning academic subjects and concepts is of little importance. Exposure and grabbing the opportunities is the most important thing. This fair helped me and my juniors in my college to get familiar with the outer world," said D. Swati, a post graduate in M.Sc (Zoology).

    Only option

    Second year B.Sc student of SKR college, N. R. S Kanti said that she had thought that M.Sc was the only option after passing her degree. However, K. Sailaja, a parent from Dhawaleswaram, was sore that the fair did not include parents' sessions.
