Recruitments gain momentum

Highly Professional

Over the years, the placement cells in educational institutions have gained a lot of importance.

The colleges have been assigning the responsibilities of placement to professionals instead of faculty members.

A lot of colleges have full-fledged placement cells which are handled by knowledgable professionals.

Thanks to them, campus recruitments have gained momentum.

The students too share a good relationship with their placement coordinators as they provide them with an all-round training for their campus interviews.

This professional kind of set-up has enabled students to prepare for their campus interviews while focussing on their academics at the same time.

“Campus selection is a golden opportunity for students to get placed in companies. If an opportunity like this is missed, then it becomes very difficult, if not impossible, for them to get selected in a company of their choice. The preparation for placement is easy. It is essential to understand the procedures thoroughly and ensure that they are meticulously followed. The preparations should start early and a systematic approach is essential. The students must start preparing when they are in the fifth semester itself,” says Dr M N Chandrasekharaiah, director, training and placement, BNMIT who has more than three decades of experience in placement and training activities.

“First of all, students should develop the habit of reading text books with the aim of understanding the subject. They should develop an inquisitive mind and should read books written by well-known authors. In our college, we ensure that our students follow all these exercises and we give individual attention to their needs,” he adds. 

He has a dedicated staff and an exclusive placement building.

Thanks to his field knowledge, he has been able to rope in many companies to the college.

Even AMC College of Engineering, which was started recently, has been able to have a successful placement drive. Not only IT majors but even core companies have visited the campus and hired a good number of students.

“For the last two years, the college has been able to get a number of companies to the campus. We have got a new placement director with a vast industry background. His rapport with the industry has also helped us achieve this mark,” says Vipul, who has passed out of AMC.

Now, with the placement cells acquiring professional approach, students need
not look anywhere else for guidance.

“During placements, there is a lot of confusion as well. So for guidance, we start calling up senior students and try to get in touch with alumni of the college, who are working in major companies. Now as we have a full-fledged placement set-up on campus, life has become easier,” says Amogh, a student of BNMIT.

Another advantage for the students is that they can easily get in touch with the alumni.

“If you have a separate establishment for placement, it maintains the statistics of all the former students. So if we want to speak to a person working in a particular company, it is easy to get his or her contact,” says Prasad, from Dayananda Sagar College of Engineering.

Even the alumni utilise the service of these cells to trace their batchmates. “When I had to change my job, I was searching for some known people for reference. That time, the placement cell of my college came to my rescue. It provided the details of the alumni. I
contacted them and they referred my name in the companies that they were working in,” says Ashwin, an alumnus of BMS College of Engineering.
