Muscat: A motivation session by noted Indian author Chetan Bhagat will be one of the many highlights of Career Uttsav – Muscat Edition. Besides being an author, Bhagat is an IIT and IIM alumnus and an ex-banker.
Career Uttsav — Muscat Edition — aims at educating students about careers that have not been created and provide a common platform to address questions that have not been asked yet.
Since its beginning in 2013, Career Uttsav has facilitated thousands of students in India to take informed career decisions. The 7th Edition of Career Uttsav, this year is a five-city mega educational event.
The stage is set to reach out to more than 2,00,000 students across Bangalore, Kota (Rajasthan), Jaipur, Muscat (Oman) and Sharjah (UAE).
While Bangalore and Kota Editions received with an overwhelming response, the Jaipur edition is awaited over the coming weekend eagerly by over 4,000 students on 21-22 December.
The event aims to extend a platform to aspiring students in Muscat on 10-11 January, 2020 – to participate under one roof at various workshops, seminars, mock test, psychometric tests and being mentored for their bright and successful career ahead.
The brainchild of the founders of K2 Learning, a premiere commerce education institute, Career Uttsav supported by LearnEd (Hyderabad, India) & Orbit Events Management (Muscat, Oman) dared to initiate an all-encompassing educative career fair to expose parents and students to innumerable career opportunities.
Career Uttsav aims to feature new-age career possibilities through over 18 workshops and seminars.
Besides the workshops and seminars, engaging experience zones; every student accompanied with their parent, will also be able to interact directly with top universities and institutions offering courses in their preferred career choice. Seats in each of these value added seminars/workshops are limited. Therefore students are encouraged to log on to and pre-register to secure their seat.

The seminars and workshops on various topics will equip our students with all the information and knowledge they need to take informed career decisions. I really wish I had such a platform when I was in School.” – remarked Chetan Bhagat, an IIT & IIM Alumni and a banker before pursuing his passion to write and claim his dues as a author with many bestseller titles under his credits. He is excited & is looking forward to address the students at Muscat.
