“Career at Sales” and “Alternate Career” sessions were also held as part of the career carnival. The challenges and opportunities of a career in Sales were discussed at the “Career at Sales”. Besides, in the session on “Alternate Career”, the students were informed of opportunities in the mobile telecom sector that goes beyond their academic discipline but equally challenging and rewarding.
