Co-founder of Employability Bridge Ambalavanan Ramachandran says that companies from different sectors are now visiting campuses. Smaller firms, start ups and product companies earlier used to recruit five or 10 and now there is 30 per cent to 40 per cent increase.
If you’re an engineer then landing a decent job during placement season – which began last week with NASSCOM’s blessings – ought to be a cinch. But this logic that is already wearing thin for metropolitan colleges, is only worse for smaller colleges in tier-2 and tier 3 cities. While students crib that a majority of leading companies visit only elite institutions in major cities like Chennai, Coimbatore, Bangalore and Hyderabad, the recruiting companies claim that students in non metro cities lack basic guidance on campus placements.
The State has around 400 IT companies, including start-ups that recruit engineering graduates every year.
