Campus Recruitment allows us to identify and nurture talent at an early stage. We visit various colleges and the identified students are placed at appropriate levels in various industries. Our association with India’s premier business houses has been long and rewarding for both sides providing for a challenging environment to support on-going learning and enriched professional development for fresh entrants.
The major objective of campus placement is to identify the talented and qualified professionals before they complete their education. This process reduces the time for an industry to pick the candidates according to their need. It is a cumbersome activity and hence majority of the companies find it difficult to trace the right talent. Many students do not understand the importance of placement training that is being imparted, whether it is aptitude training or soft skills. They show the least interest in this due to various factors viz., projects, assignments or more of activities loaded by the colleges as part of their curriculum thinking that it is not useful. It is the responsibility of the companies training on placement to make the students equipped on all aspects of career development along with creating a very good impact in them which makes them feel every minute they spend in the placement training session is worth being there and will help them in getting placed in their dream companies.
A presentation about the company is made during the pre-placement talk. Basically the presentation includes the information like selection procedure, company’s milestones, organizational achievements, candidate scope of improvement within the organization if selected, salary, employment benefits. Usually this presentation ends up with question and answer session, students given chance to ask questions about.
Companies who are interested in campus visit for recruitment purpose have specific qualification criteria. Qualification criteria include marks or grade range, specific program. Basically company go for specific professional like MCA, MBA to recruit those people because their qualification suitable for their criteria.
Qualified students will undergo a test. This is usually a simple aptitude test but depending on company and the position looking for, the difficulty level of the test may be at the higher side.
Most of the companies will have this round as a filtering round. This round may or may not be conducted.
A common topic is placed before the group and a formal discussion or knowledge sharing is expected by the judge. Purpose of this round is to check communication skills, etiquette of person, listening ability, convincing power, group leadership, leader or follower and many more thing are evaluated on the basis of requirement or the particular intention of organisation or company. It is very important to keep yourself updated with latest news and discussion topics for appearing in GD round.
Based on outcome of above said process, students will further undergo a round called technical round. This round evaluates the technical ability of the student. In most of the cases this will be an individual round but it may be grouped with the formal interview.
Final round of the selection process, where the student’s stability and his confidence level towards the particular work will be evaluated. The interview focuses on overall personality of the candidate. The more practical application knowledge a candidate has the more chances of their selection increase. So having worked on projects in the industry, internships in relevant companies and industry visits to brands in the same sector will enhance a candidate’s chance of selection.
Once the student is selected, he will be given an offer letter. Company’s executive may provide guidelines about joining procedure and other prerequisites if needed.
