Ranchi, April 23: Board examinations are over and institutes are queuing up to rope in students.

The two-day Jharkhand Career Fair kicked off at a city hotel today. Institutes like the Digital Asia School of Animation (Calcutta), Magnum Technosoft (Bangalore), Dolphin School of Management and Overseas School for Management hosted stalls at the event.

The fair was organised by Kiran Group of Education and inaugurated by Dilip Prasad, the chairman of the Jharkhand Public Service Commission (JPSC).

Sagarika Bhattacharya, who was representing the Digital Asia School stall, said a boom in animation sector has got many students interested in the field.

“We are also placing Indian students abroad. The student-teacher ratio at our institute is 1:1, which is followed to provide quality education,” she claimed.

Magnum Technosoft representative Anand Tripathy said they are training students at BPOs for six months. “The main advantage is that students can also get a job while staying in Jharkhand,” he said.

Anirban Ojha, senior course co-ordinator of Overseas School for Management Studies, said there are a plethora of opportunities for students and they can also pursue studies in Australia, America and Canada.

He claimed that students would also get an opportunity to study abroad.

One of the visitors, Neelam Rudra, said: “My daughter is preparing for an engineering course and is keen to learn about the upcoming institutes.”

The director of Kiran Group of Education, Siya Ram Mishra, said this is the second year of the career fair. “We are planning similar fairs for Jamshedpur and Bokaro, respectively,” Mishra added.
