What Calcutta Lacks, NOT!

What Calcutta Lacks, NOT!

Are you a whiner? Have you recently noticed people around you not paying attention to your constant complains anymore? It happens, don’t worry, whining is a start to a great thought. All you have to do is when you want something go and get it instead of waiting for someone to come and beg you, spoon feed you and hold your hand leading you to what you really want to do. BlabberCat has been receiving a lot of queries about certain opportunity this city lakhs. But actually, it doesn’t. Here are some most common silent miracles this city is looking for.

2. Image consultant

A role which started in the 1970′s because at that time ‘how to dress’ was only taught in modeling schools. Educating individuals on what looks good on them, why, and how to project a desired image is just one of the many consultancy service the image consultant will provide. To be a certified image consultant one has to attend and complete training in color and shape analysis. Which means they understand the science behind what looks good on people and why.

3. Jobs, internship and training

This is a major concern Today neither the students know where to look for internship nor do the companies know where to find interns. BlabberCat is here to fill the communication gap, because we understand how important it is to learn and the type of learning that a start-up company will provide cannot be compared. You will be surprised the number of companies, website firms, design houses and so many other companies looking for interns. We need to understand we cannot be the editor of vogue magazine directly or work for our dream company in our first go. We need to start somewhere to go there and we will try out best for you and provide a stepping-stone
