Proud: Students who have been shortlisted by the companies with their faculty members.

Though more companies turned up for campus recruitment last year, they hired lesser number of students. Interestingly, the same companies have hired a good number of candidates this time around and offered them lucrative packages.

Wipro, Infosys, IBM, Societe Generale, one of the major European financial services companies and Vantage Agora have already completed their campus recruitment processes hiring around 65 students. Hewlett-Packard, Target India and Tesco are expected on campus soon.

“We are not interested in BPOs. All the companies, which came to our campus, have placed our students in accounts, finance, taxation, insurance, marketing and investment banking sections. Some students have received offer letters from three or four companies. Now, they can make the best choice without any compromise,” says P G Subramanyam, the principal.

Anusha S has been shortlisted by IBM after a rigorous recruitment process that comprised aptitude test, personal interview and HR rounds. “Throughout the interview, they grilled me about accounts and financial issues. Thankfully, as per my lecturers’ suggestions, I revised my PUC notes before the interview. That made my day,” she says.  
The college is also a centre for pooled campus recruitment drives. As per this set up, the students have also attended interviews at Jain College and Adarsha College.
Anusha Hegde, who has got a job in the finance section of Infosys, says, “There were five rounds totally, including general aptitude, finance and accounts, general discussion and essay writing. A few weeks before the interview, our college conducted a ‘Total Student Development Programme’. Many resource persons and professional corporate trainers took sessions which helped us crack the interview,” she says.

“This year, a large number of students have registered for industrial placements. It is because of the increased cost of higher education and the growing popularity of distant mode of education. By opting for correspondence courses, students can continue their education while working in a company,” says the placement coordinator of the college — Chandrashekar C V.

Nagaraj S, a student hired by Infosys, says he had to give a speech on a particular topic during the interview which was very difficult for him. “I was nervous to face that round. But my lectures encouraged me to take the task as a challenge. Later, I delivered my best and got shortlisted.”
