The Career Placement Cell held its inaugural corporate talk on Wednesday, the 9th of September. The speaker was Ms. Surabhi Dewra, founder and CEO of Careerguide.co.in.
Ms. Dewra held a highly informal and informative talk, focused on guidance for career options, the importance of networking and concrete steps that students should take towards achieving their entrepreneurial ambitions.
Ms. Dewra also put forward her personal work philosophies, a few central ones being ‘Never eat alone’ and ‘You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with’. She then promptly opened the floor for questions, sparking a highly positive response from the students assembled there. The questions subsequently asked ranged from topics such as Surabhi’s primary mentor when starting up, personal career advice and networking, to queries regarding Ms. Dewra’s own business venture.
Ms. Dewra gamely answered each and every question posed to her, in the process providing personalized career plans for many students. She almost singularly recommended that students pursue professional work immediately after their graduation, personally ruling against the popular notion of further studies at this stage.
When contacted after the talk, DFG students Shreshtha Agarwal and Siddharth Nair found the talk to be extremely informative and helpful. Moreover, they found Ms. Dewra’s demeanour to be extremely pleasant and forthcoming, planning to pursue further counselling with her website careerguide.co.in
So on behalf of ISBF and the Career Placement Cell, we would like to heartily thank Ms. Surabhi Dewra for her highly successful session. Here’s to many more in the coming year!
