PLACEMENT DRIVE

engrossed: Participants at the event.
The ‘Talent Connect Drive 2013-14’ organised by the students of ISBR was an initiative by the students and for the students. The first year PGDM and MBA students of the Corporate Network Cell (CNC) of the institute got more than 40 companies to visit the campus for recruitment. Out of the batch of 216 students, around 130 have already been placed.

“This is a system where the juniors help out the seniors during recruitment. They also learn what it’s like to get companies for campus recruitment. While in other colleges, the management takes on this role, here, the juniors organise it,” said Jai Ganesh, a final year MBA student. He added, “Almost 460 companies were approached out of which, we got a positive response from 40 companies.

The response has been slow because each of the companies has its own parameters. We found that some of them didn’t have any vacancy.”

For the students, it was a learning experience.

“We have learnt how to face an interview and how we must showcase ourselves. We have also gotten to know the current market trends and the dos and don’ts of the corporate world,” explained PS Sunil Kumar, a PGDM (marketing) student.

Sunil added that he has been selected by one company but will also be taking the tests of a few others.

Santosh Deepak Dasari, a final year PGDM student, said, “It’s been a goodexperience for us and we

are glad to have companies from a wide range of sectors coming in.”Rakesh Reddy, another

final year student, said, “It’s a good chance to network. And through this, we also got to know our juniors better.”
