Campus Placement season : IITs go hi-tech, other colleges may follow

 IITs go hi-tech, other colleges may follow 

Campus placements across the 7 older Indian Institutes of Technology got off to a colourful start.The highlight of this placement season was at the IIT Madras, where for the first time hiring went high-tech with the popular social networking site Facebook conducting interviews for short-listed students via Skype, the Internet voice protocol service.

Facebook has offered a huge compensation package (exact

amount withheld) for the job positions, which are US based.

Professor N Ramesh Babu, advisor (training and placement), IIT Madras said, " The interview for some of the 13 short-listed students will be conducted on Thursday too because of the time gap between the US and here. The HR managers are interviewing candidates sitting in the US."
Babu is both excited as well as caught in a dilemma of sorts as 250 recruiters comprising a good mix of old and new economy companies are already lined up in close slots till end-January 2011. "We are in a position where say after 20 days you may not have enough students for recruitment. We have not been able to give dates for some companies. Most companies which hire here, will also be going to the other IITs," he told The Times of India. As of now, 1066 students have registered for the campus placements and the option of a Dream Job' under which students get to choose the best of offers, is no longer there.

In the first phase of the campus placements which are scheduled to end on December 27 and the subsequent phase next month, as many as 8 to 10 companies have been allotted slots on each day. On the opening day, Google continued its hiring process beyond 10 pm.

Private Colleges

Meanwhile, even some private campuses in and around Chennai are witnessing a windfall during this placement season. At the SRM deemed university in Kattankulathur, the Information Technology major Tata Consultancy Services has offered placements to a whopping 1091 students. "This is the largest single campus recruitment for the TCS. Even Wipro has hired 406 students from all streams of engineering from our institution," said S Ganapathy, dean (placements), SRM deemed university.
