Path to self-discovery
“We are happy that he has found the right job at the right time with the help and supervision of his trainer at the SMART Centre” – Aamir’s Father
Trained at Tech Mahidra Foundation's SMART centre
His story of self-determination, self-discovery and instilling a sense of responsibility to the situation of his family is what makes Aamir Khan an inspiration for many.
Son of a tailor and a homemaker, Aamir didn’t have any aspirations or career goals as he was unable to complete his school education due to the financial difficulties in the family. His parents and younger brother were expecting him to add to the family income but due to a lack of skills and knowledge, he was unable to find an appropriate job.
One fine day, one of his friends told him about a SMART Centre in their vicinity and when he enrolled himself in the 4-month course in Customer Retail and Sales at a SMART Centre in Uttam Nagar in Delhi, it was a turning point in his life. Apart from the hands-on training, he also developed his communication skills and underwent soft skills training which made him feel confident and job-ready. In Feb 2020, he joined “Bachat Bazaar” as a Sales Executive and began providing for his family.
His contribution to the family is highly appreciated and his parents are happy that he understands his responsibilities. “We are happy that he has found the right job at the right time with the help and supervision of his trainer at the SMART Centre.”- Father
Aamir’s job has improved the overall financial condition of the family and has reduced the pressure of earning on both the parents. While he continues to work, he plans to complete his school education and later pursue graduation.
