“This was the first time a job and apprenticeship fair was organised. The students have done exceptional in their interviews. I’m happy to share that over 1,600 jobs and offers have been made to the participating students. “This was only the first of many. We are aligning our partnerships and will leave no stone unturned to ensure maximum support to our students to get the best placements,” said Professor Neharika Vohra, the vice-chancellor of DSEU.
