Hi Guys, I am back with a very important post. Today i will tell you all how to get placed in good companies in college placements. Well, because I was a CS student, I could help mostly the CS guys, but it’s also going to help all the engineering students from another branches also.
As we all know, engineering has been a very influencing course in India. All the parents teach their child that they have to become an engineer in the school days only. They are also given various coaching and other tuition. So, if you go for calculations, around 42-45% of engineering graduates gets placed in companies. Rest 55-58% students still search for good jobs after being rejected in the college interviews. So, it’s very important for everyone to get included in the 45%. Generally, Companies take interviews in different rounds which at least include 3 rounds. Firstly they will give briefing about their company, then first round as written test, second round as GROUP DISCUSSION and final round as PI(Personal Interview). Let me categorize some points that you should follow to get selected in college interviews.
- Be Properly Dressed:
This is the most important and first point when you go for a college interview. First impression is the last impression. Your formal dress should be very neat and clean and your look should be very simple.
- RESUME should be short and simple:
Guys, do remember that the recruiters get to see a bulk of resumes every day. So, you should be very careful about including the important things in the resume and also not keep it lengthy. Also, your resume should be unique from others. The recruiters are also fed up of the phrases and quotes picked up from the internet. Try writing on your own.
- Be Interactive:
The starting of any interviews takes place with the company owner/employee/recruiter giving a briefing about the company. You need to be very attractive. Simply note down, what they say, ask them questions if you have any doubts. They show interest in you only when you show interest in them.
- Do some Research work day before company works:
This is very important. You need to know about the company that comes to your college for placements. INTERNET is the best place for these answers. Search for the founder of the company, about the company, what they do, and also how they take their placement. Prepare yourself for the type of questions they ask, search for group discussion topics and also questions they ask in the college interviews.
- Prepare yourself with at least one language:
CS Students should have perfection in at least one computer language at least, may be JAVA, C, PHP, DOT NET, etc. Be prepared with at least one language also. Show them your skills in the language by showing them your project in that language.
- Never lie:
In order to impress the recruiters, many students lie in front of them. Even in the resume, all the information given should be true and valid. If you don’t know any answer, you can try to give the answer, but prefer being loyal in front of the recruiter.
Well these were some of the points that may help you get selected in the college interviews. Knowledge is the main base, so these things help you the most if you have very good knowledge about your branch. Thank You.
