The fear of recession and cut-throat competition has students flocking to various workshops and hobby classes in a bid to add an extra element
While the third years are busy attending career-counselling sessions the second and first years gear up to add the extra factor to their personalities. All for the cutthroat competition that plundered the peace of many and recession is there to add to their worries. While some head to personality grooming classes,others follow silver lines. As the band Silver from the city won I – rock finals a horde of second and first years heads towards guitar classes to learn the tricks to strum it the Silver way. While guitar classes top the chart,language classes are next to follow. Girls favourite remains the personality grooming classes.
19-year-old Manvi Singh from Indira College a first year student will head towards personality grooming classes to spend her month long break. I dont want myself to be lacking in any front. With recession going on and the cut throat competition I think unless we have something extra than the normal we will not be able to survive, says Singh.
The recession fear,which the youngsters feel,is going to stay till they pass out have them pulling their sleeves to learn the extra trick of the trade. The demand from an employee is always on a high,feels Rahul Kelkar a second year student from BMCC. You have to be multifaceted if you want success otherwise why would an organisation would like to have you. Especially in MBA it is your overall personality on which you are judged, says Kelkar.
