Connect4Career (C4C) was established in 2012 by industry veterans in education and event management. The idea behind its inception is that every student has a unique skillset and different career aspirations, but they seldom find suitable opportunities and ways to reach their dream destinations. Hence C4C was formed to create an expressway for the young minds and to connect them with their dream colleges, companies and jobs.

C4C not only help the students in getting admissions, placements, jobs in top-notch companies but also assist them in becoming successful leaders, thereby improving their employability rate.

C4C team of motivated young professionals strives to connect tomorrow’s employability needs to today’s talent, and bridges the gap between employers’ expectations and students’ skillsets.
