Last Thursday’s on-campus Career Fair was a great success. Representatives of 85 high profile companies interacted extremely positively with students and alumni. The constant flow of the students for interviews, applications and career related queries kept the employers super busy throughout the day.
Employers and recruiters interviewed hundreds of UG and PG students, and on the whole left with a very positive impression of the University and its vibrant community. Overall, more than four hundred students participated along with many student volunteers who helped us.
The fair provided our students an opportunity to learn about graduate opportunities, the local employment market and to submit their CV’s for entry level graduate positions and internships. It was really positive to see a good number of students use the day as an opportunity to start engaging and networking with the employers, gaining invaluable insight on their target industry and planning their career ahead.
The feedback from the employers on the student interviews and applications was extremely positive. Many students were shortlisted for a second interview. We are hoping to get the exact number of selected candidates for internships and permanent by next week.
