Campus Placements or Campus Recruitment drives are conducted in various educational institutes for providing job opportunities to the students who are pursuing their particular academic courses. Campus Placements offer a student a wonderful opportunity to get placed during the course of his academic pursuits and provide him the comforts of a safe and secure future. Keeping in mind the importance of the campus placement programs, it is vital for a student to prepare adequately for these programs and make sure that they put their best foot forward.
There are two types of Campus Placement programs:
On-Campus Placement Drives
In On-Campus placement drives, companies visit colleges to select final year students and selection depends upon a student’s ability to work-hard, his technical capabilities and his focus.
Off-Campus/Pool Campus Placement Drives
In Off Campus placement drives, recruitment is conducted at a common place that may be a particular college or a public place where students from different colleges assemble and take part in the various stages of the campus placement drive. A number of these drives are advertised as ‘Job Fairs’.
The main objective of the placement process is to identify the talented individuals. The criteria adopted for selection by most companies are variable in nature and selection process is as follows:
- Pre-Placement Talk
- Educational Qualification
- Written Test
- Group Discussion (Optional)
- Technical Interview
- HR Interview
- Post-Placement Talk
The number of students is finally selected by the company depends on two major parameters:
- The number of students that are able to match the minimum basic requirements of the company set for each of the above stages.
- The organizational requirements in terms of the people required for the coming fiscal year.
Here is the biggest problems students face in campus placement
NEED FOR PREPARATION
In order to find the best possible placement, students need to put up their best. While more companies are now recruiting one must realize that the competition has become tougher. One should also keep in mind that organizations do not want to compromise on quality, as the salary offered is good. So, even good students need to polish their speed and accuracy, through regular practice and thus give a credible performance.
The time frame for recruitment on campus is around 6 to 8 months for a fresher. In most cases due to bulk recruitment, IT companies select the students based on the academic knowledge rather than their exposure to IT tools and services. IT companies have started focusing on how to bridge the Skill gap and make the fresher employable in reduced time cycle.
Last but not the least our prime responsibility is to provide the fresher community with necessary knowledge on two things namely Knowledge on operations of IT sector, their processes and skill set mapping and Knowledge of major industries and related solutions. As part of the recruitment process the fresher community not only requires the theoretical knowledge but also hands on training with specific tools and services with relevant case studies from Industry. They need to work on simulated real time solutions in Technology industry. Also, they need to update on the latest changes in technologies and how it will impact the industry and also have necessary exposure to research projects.
