For any student pursuing a professional career in the university or college, getting placed on campus is a dream come true! There are many reasons that make on-campus placement so popular and the best thing to happen for a student-
- Plenty of Options – It is difficult to find and connect with reputed companies on your own if you go ahead with off-campus placement options. Most of the universities in India have Campus Placement Cells which stay in touch with leading MNCs and top business organisations who are invited for campus placement drives. So a student gets to meet all the leading organizations on-campus,giving him multiple options to choose from.
- Economic Slump – In a time of economic slump, jobs don’t come easy. So it is better for the students if they get placed on campus rather than taking up the challenge of finding an off-campus job. Even the career pages of newspapers or employment websites like monsters or naukri.com will not help you find the kind of jobs you can get through on-campus placement drives.
- Support of the educational institution – Another reason that makes on-campus placement successful and effective is the fact that these are very well organized and systematic. There is not much hassle involved for the students; rather the students get all the benefits along with mentoring and guidance from their faculty or from the corporate grooming mentors appointed by the University who help them prepare for the interview and tackle tough recruitment processes.
So it is always better to prepare your best for campus placements and use campus placement option seriously. On-campus placement drives are highly effective especially when you see the results of leading universities of India just like MMDU which has a very active Placement Cell that maintains liaison with the top MNCs and prime recruiters of the country 365 days a year and not just during placement season. It is because of its strong interaction with industry that MMDU gets the prime recruiters for its engineering program, MBA, hospitality programs, Mass Communication industry and study programs in pharmacy as well. More than 87% of MMDU students got placed in last 3 years and the students have got offers as high as Rs 30 LPA from top companies of India and abroad.
