BENGALURU: Author Chetan Bhagat on Saturday advised youngsters to choose their academic courses wisely.
“It is important that you don’t get into the wrong stream or profession. Not only will you do things half-heartedly, you will also not grow as a person. So chase your passion, what you love to do,” he said.
He was speaking at the inauguration of ‘Career Utsav’, a two-day career fair, being held at NIMHANS Convention Centre. The first day of the fair saw an overwhelming response from students who registered themselves and answered a mock CET and psychometric tests to assess themselves and train better on Saturday. They also participated in different workshops organised as part of the event.
Most of the students present were those who were in 12th Standard waiting to choose the next move in their life.
Bhagat narrated how he himself quit his investment banking career to pursue his love for writing and advised everyone to focus on their interest.
“Get out of your comfort zone and work hard towards honing your skills. Get into the best institution and I think Career Utsav is the best place to start searching,” he said.
The third edition of the Utsav has been designed to provide a platform to aspiring students who want to achieve something in life and carve a niche for themselves in the society.
