National security services such as the Army, Air Force, Delhi Police and Border Security Force (BSF) have emerged as the most popular draws at the career conclave being held for class XII students of Delhi government schools, Indian Express has reported.
According to the report, this is the second time that the education department is organising such a conclave, with the first one being held in May 2018. The stalls for these services enjoyed the highest popularity last year too, education department officials were cited in the report as saying.
Guidance in Hotel Management was however, the most in demand last year, and subsequently stalls by Delhi Institute of Hotel Management and Catering Technology have been introduced this year.
Furthermore, a stall by the State Council of Educational Research and Training (SCERT) was also added after finding that a large number of students are interested in the field. A small stall by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) was also added after demands for guidance on chartered accountancy by commerce students.
“This year, a new demand we have been receiving from students is that IITs (Indian Institute of Technology) be invited to put up stalls,” an official was quoted in the report as saying.
As per the report, the career conclave started on 28 January and is scheduled to conclude on 31 January.
