There are several working opportunities for those who complete class 12. The opportunities
are found both in Government and Private Institutions. Students who choose to work
must ensure to continue the studies to improve the career. There are several colleges
and institutions those offer courses for working students that help in improving
the educational qualification. The students must be ready to balance the time for
the job and studies.

organizations prefer and consider the experience along with the qualification. When

opportunities than just qualified candidates.
