Our college doesn’t provide any hostel facility or mess food. They give us the reference of hostel and Pg provided near the college. We don’t have mess food in our college. We have to find our own source for our food and accommodation. Teachers will help us finding where and what.
JD has an online portal where recruiters post a job advertisement. The same is shared with the students through posters of it on bulletin boards on the campus as well as a detailed message on WhatsApp class groups. Campus interview conducted by some well-known brands and garment companies annually. Calvin Klein, H&M Arvind fashion and a few other well-knowns brands. I joined the advanced diploma course as a means for me to start my own small business or a boutique, but after studying for 3 years, I came to realise my opportunities are abundant and I could work in the industry instead. Which is what I have in mind now.
