Metro students want pvt sector jobs,small-town peers like PSUs

"B-school pass-outs of metro cities give preference to the corporate sector, in which growth prospects are comparatively quicker and faster," the survey-based study of Assocham said.
The survey covered 600 job aspirants from business schools located in metropolitan and non-metro cities.

"More than 80 per cent of the non-metro aspirants have PSUs like ONGC, NTPC and SAIL as their first choice," Assocham Secretary General D S Rawat said. Students from smaller cities find jobs in PSUs to be more stable than those in the private sector.

Students from bigger cities prefer private firms, as corporates not only give them a challenging and exciting work environment, but also the kind of exposure which is not available in PSUs, the study said.

The industry body said that since a large number of job aspirants are opting for the private sector, it is high time for the PSUs to reform themselves."Government-owned companies need to reform their regulated administrative and working systems," it said.
