With Noida gradually emerging as a major
employment hub of the country, many leading companies like
Idea Cellular, Spice BPO and popular fast food joints like
Pizza Hut and McDonald’s, etc. came forward to employ
the students who completed training from the Noida centre.
The various employment engagement activities organised for
the students at the centre helped to develop their soft
skills and added significantly to their personality development.
The career counseling sessions were very helpful for the
students to perform well during the job interviews. A total
of 369 students among 495 who were trained across the 56
centres in 41 cities of the country between January and
March this year were successfully placed. Fab India, Cross
Word, Shoppers Stop, Pantaloons, Max New York Life Insurance,
Pizza Hut etc. have found the course content suitable for
employing the students after completing the STeP course.
