About 700 candidates sit for test, group discussion and interview
The Bhawanipur Education Society College (BESC) held an offline placement drive on April 8 for around 700 students from different departments. The students bagged job offers in start-ups and established organisations alike.
“BESC ends up placing every student participating in the recruitment drives. As our college is for undergraduates, we feel honoured to be able to get graduating students hired and give them direction,” said Dilip Shah, dean and professor, BESC.
“Recruitment drives happen round the year. Owing to the pandemic, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) and global investment banking company Goldman Sachs, among others, have conducted online placement drives. BYJU’s is planning to recruit our students online as well,” Shah added.
Highlights of the offline placement drive:
-- Companies that took part in the drive include business management start-up Simco Consultancy, health-tech firm Reverse Factor, youth volunteering platform Adore India, industrial equipment company Maco Corporation and MBA coaching centre Erudite.
-- Students were hired for pay packages of Rs 4.5 lakh to Rs 5 lakh per annum.
-- The recruitment was held in three stages. A written test was followed by a group discussion and an interview. “Companies know what they are looking for. Hence, sometimes they conduct an interview on the campus and schedule another at their office,” Shah added.
-- The majority of students at BESC are from the BCom section, so their numbers at the placement drive were far more than those from the Arts and Science sections.
