My success emanates from the inputs of my teachers and the support of parents. Thanks to the wonderful campus culture of LPU also, which has a great bearing on what I have learnt as a student in my University.” The most visible feature of the fair was that it was more broad-based in context of participating companies, which was reflected from the broad array of sectors that were represented by the companies dealing in varied forms of products and services.

Addressing the gathering, LPU Chancellor Shri Ashok Mittal said, “The responsibility of any educational entity is not confined only to enhancement of skill-sets and augmentation of competencies of its students; but to provide them with ample opportunities that can help them to reap benefits from what they have learnt in the campus. LPU, since its very inception, has been committed to bring the best of recruiters from the job market for its students, and the present Job Fair is one of the series of events that the University has planned for placing its students.” He stated that in the next edition of the Fair, to be held in 2014, LPU will plan to increase the number of companies to twice of the figure of the present one.
