Jamshedpur, April 8: The housekeeping training course run by Tata Steel in association with Indian Hotels and PRATHAM has recorded 100 per cent placements for the third time. All 25 students from the seventh batch of the three-month course were today handed over their job offer letters issued by some of India’s premier luxury hotels.

It will help you climb the professional ladder,” he added while addressing the trainees.
Mr. Debashis Chatterjee, Senior Manager, Skill Development, CSR Tata Steel called upon the students to explore options for higher studies while being in the job. “It’s good you are all set to join some of the country’s leading hotels.

You will be able to earn more and look after your families in a better way,” stressed Chatterjee.
