Preparing for the best

imparting A corporate training class in progress.

As the academic year comes to an end, colleges and students are bucking up for two things — exams and placements. While colleges are busy zeroing in on the best companies and training their students, the students are preparing for the grilling sessions which they will have to face from companies.

Sri Bhagawan Mahaveer Jain University has a great range of training programmes to help its students survive against all odds in the placement process. The students are given an introduction to the companies coming to employ them. This way, students get to know about the company’s history and specialisation, which are helpful before they go for an interview with that company.

The students have also registered for the corporate training course provided by the University. Once a week, they have classes in which they are taught how to present themselves, speak, prepare their resumes and even dress. Prasant Jalan, a final year B Com student says, “We are trained well by the experts in this field and this helps us a lot. Be it the presentations about the companies which visit or the communication classes, all these classes have helped me immensely in developing my skills. Due to this excellent training, I have been placed.”

Students are compulsorily asked to take part in mock group discussions and interviews.
Frequent aptitude and English tests are also held. Weak students are identified and selected for more work after their area of weakness is identified. This helps them improve in the concerned area.

Navin Jaiswal, who is pursuing PGDBM says, “Mock exams, group discussions and interviews help us a lot. Because of these discussions and interview rounds, we are able to overcome stage fear and the fear of facing the interview board. Also the grammatical errors, pronunciation problems and mother tongue accent can be easily removed. These are some of the common problems which most of us face and we are able to correct ourselves in this class.”   

Sometimes students are asked to do presentations on burning issues. Also there are add-on courses in marketing, finance and human resource, which turn out to be an added advantage.

Karthik Sridhar, a final year BCom student says, “The add-on courses are extremely useful. I benefited a lot from the Toastmasters Certification Programme. It taught me how to communicate effectively. Also the topic-wise presentations done by the students help a lot. As most of the times, we want to do a better presentation than the others, we also listen to others which eventually helps us learn well.”
