Kolkata was one of the premier industrial centers of India until the 70s, but lost out to cities like Bengaluru and New Delhi. It, however, is still one of the major metros. It is the gateway to eastern Indian and the Northeast. It still houses ITC, Coal India, RP-Sanjiv Goenka Group and so on. It still continues to be one of India’s major intellectual powerhouses, as it hosts institutions like Indian Institute of Management, Indian Statistical Institute, Presidency College, St. Xavier’s College, et al.
Most number of people who used to venture to abroad, especially the UK, to study belonged to this city. Kolkata has many professionals who work in Salt Lake city, its satellite city, and in other places. The working elite of this city would be on the lookout for the best Career Counsellors.
