Right Career Choice!

We were worried about guiding our bright but undecided son in class X, who frequently changed career aspirations. Then we connected with Fermata. Their process allowed our son to express his fears and dreams. With expert advice, he understood his choices better and decided to keep law and management open as options. Now, he is at peace with his decision, and so are we. We're thankful to Fermata for their support and guidance.
