Career Guidance Week-2009
We are proud to update you about the recent VVans Activity, i.e., Career Guidance Week 2009.
As most of you might know, CGW is an annual programme of our association, aimed at educating the students of tenth standard about the various career options available to them. The idea is to get the experts from various fields and provide the students with a brief overview of their field so that they can be aware of some of the less known important careers as well as be more informed about the more probable careers they might take up.
We are pleased to inform you that this year’s CGW, the second consecutive year was a great success as well. With around 14 speakers speaking about different career options, the programme was highly informative and interesting.
Here is a brief review of the 6-day long programme.
