Mumbai to Host Career Festival Beginning Today

Mumbai: Overwhelmed by the awesome response the career festival received in April 2009, the organisers are gearing up to host it again. The festival that was organised on the plush Saboo Siddique College ground, Byculla (Mumbai) in April 2009, this year would be held at the same place from January 08 to January 10.


"Last year we had organised the career festival in April for two days. However, following the overwhelming response during the festival and continuous requests and suggestions we received ever since, we have decided to organise it in January and for three days instead of two", says Kazmi Malik, one of the organisers.


April has always been a deciding moment for the HSC students in Maharashtra to search for a viable career. Having just finished their board exams, for the students the month is always abuzz with hectic activities as they, along with their parents, hunt for better career opportunities. The hectic activities for the Career Search are more profound in Muslim students, as unlike their counterparts from other religions, they are comparatively late in taking a decision for a right but viable career.


However it immensely helped them when Anjuman-e-Islam, Urdu Head Masters’ Association, Association of Muslim Professionals, Students’ Solidarity Forum and Vidharbh Welfare Association organized a Career Fest entitled as Vision 2015 on Sabu Siddique College Ground, Byculla in Mumbai.


“The career festival was a total innovation for the students from the Urdu medium schools for they normally don’t get any opportunity to attend such programs that could help them choosing a right career at a right time”, Aamir Ansari, the program coordinator said while speaking to


“This year”, Aamir added, “We intend to make the career festival more useful for the students by joining hands with top-notch successful professionals from various fields to explain to the students and their parents the rightful ways to choose an appropriate career suitable for them. Also, this year's ‘Career Stalls’ would be more inventive where professionals associated with reputed organization and belonging to different professions will explain to the students about the desired career options.”


The three day career festival between January 8 to 10 this year would be jointly organised by Pearl Educational & Welfare Trust, Anjuman-i-Islam, Association of Muslim Professionals (AMP), Kawish, Urdu Markaz, and Students Islamic Organization of India (SIO Mumbai) and others.


Highlights of the Career Festival

Talk shows with role models

Stalls for different professionals

Quiz and Drama

Information for Scholarships

Workshop on various topics

Direct discussion with prominent personalities from different fields

For SSC students, free booklet to guide how to score

Special training sessions for teachers and parents
