“A mind that is stretched by new experiences can never go back to its old dimensions.” – Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr
Choosing the right career is immensely crucial while students are still in school, so that they don’t regret in later lives. For that students need to make conscious effort to analyse their own selves and explore their strengths, weaknesses, interest and aptitude. They also should attempt to know the available career opportunities and also about alternate career options if they decide to change their stream in future.
To guide the students, SAI International regularly organizes SAI career Talk, where eminent educationists or leaders in the field of education interact with the students and advise them on present career paths, process of application to various universities, building an appealing resume and many more.

SAI International School believes in bringing about a meaningful change in the lives of its students by constantly guiding them to pursue the right path. Simultaneously, the school takes care to identify and understand the area of expertise of the students as well as motivates them for self reflection to assess their own strength and weakness. This gives them the ability to weigh options before taking any decisions and also inspires the children to gain a better control over their life in order to move ahead successfully.
