We  had  been shown the whole company structure.  Their staff were very kind and helping.  We visited Reliance Jio’s data center there after . Mr. Sachin guided us to the data center and gave us valuable inputs regarding working of it. He showed us the storage devices and servers.. It was both fun and learning experience for  our  batch. This visit helped us to get insight of how actually a company works. At the end, Mr.Vipin explained about the company details. He also briefed what to study and how to focus on career. It was a great experience and learning for all . This visit  gave lot of exposure to the corporate world which will help us to grow in future.
