Speaking about the Careers Fair, Mr. Rohan Pasari, Founder of Cialfo said, ‘We are excited to partner with Omega schools through our special series of Career Fairs, which we’ve specifically created to support nextgen learners at Omega School as part of our mission to make education accessible across India and worldwide. Omega’s “new school” approach aligns with Cialfo’s innovative spirit and focus on positively impacting students, schools, and society, with speed and at scale. This partnership will help Omega’s school Career Counselling Committee (CCC) and educators create higher levels of engagement with students and their parents; provide smarter guidance about the colleges and scholarships they can apply to; and achieve faster rates of acceptance to colleges that ultimately will set them up for long-term career and lifelong success.”
Speaking about Omega School, Mr. Bharath Madhavan, Correspondent of LMOIS said, "At Omega school, we are positioning ourselves for growth, innovation, and inclusion. The traditional system of rote learning is going to become a relic in the modern world where the right set of skills are essential for employability and research. The result-oriented exam-based approach of education is the old-school style and not the Omega way. We believe ourselves to be a progressive school that promotes students to pursue new opportunities in order to become future leaders. Our motto at Omega is School -> College -> Career -> Life and our work takes all our children through this entire journey towards self-development and excellence. In order to achieve this objective, we have a very strong Career Counselling Committee (CCC) that is keeping abreast with the latest opportunities in the field of education for our children to embrace and seek the best placements for their growth. Our CCC is in partnership with various experts in the career guidance space as well as in MoUs with various universities for providing the best opportunities for our children. Our efforts are steady and continuous in raising the awareness of parents and teachers towards progressive and emergent career spaces for children with a variety of skills and talents."
