Placement Opportunity

Placements are a very important part of any student’s life. After all, many students consider them to be a gateway into the industry of their choice.

In order to provide their students the best possible opportunities in this regard, Sambhram Group of Institutions recently conducted a job fair, where students could interact with industry representatives. It was coordinated by Veena R, the placement officer of the college in association with the Karnataka Central Placement Cell.

It was a blessing for the students of the college, because a grand total of 14 companies arrived on campus during the job fair, looking for enthusiastic young recruits.

What’s more, the fair wasn’t restricted only to students from Sambhram Group of Institutions. Youngsters from other colleges could walk in as well, and use the opportunity to interact with the company representatives.

In total, around 550 students from 12 colleges across the City attended the job fair. The companies who were part of the fair included Reliance Communication, GETIT Info Services, Wipro, Mphasis, Capgemini, ING Vysya, Cognizant and the Goan Institute of

Not surprisingly, the students put their best foot forward in order to impress the company representatives and secure a place in their organisation. Around 30 students from Sambhram Group of Institutions got placed, making the entire event a grand success.

Students such as Hemanth, Santosh, Nagaraj, Anand S H and Nitesh were some of the lucky recruits.

Praveen, another one of the final-year MBA students who was lucky enough to get a job, says that the entire job fair was the perfect opportunity for graduating students.
He himself secured a seat as human resource manager at the Goan Institute of Communication, and can’t be happier about it.

“It was superb to be able to meet all those company officials — there were so many opportunities under the same roof,” he says.

Ask him about the strategy he employed for the interview and he says, “I think the trick to impress interviewers during placement is to avoid getting nervous and being true to one’s qualities, without showing off. These are things which attract interviewers,” says Praveen.
