Tips

All the final year Students who are perusing their Engineering at their engineering institutes as the placement season has started for Providing Placements to the students in various core and Software companies. But the As per reports, only 15% of the engineers produced are employable. That means the remaining 85% of the students are getting degrees but they do not have Job. The main reason for this is because if lack of proper training and motivation to get into the job market. Here are some tips to the students who want to get selected in campus placements.

With this background, the students need to understand that unless he gets himself properly trained it is not possible for him to get a proper placement.

Role of Laboratory :

Students must sincerely do the lab experiments designed in their curriculum and be thoroughly knowledgeable in all of them. This gives them confidence and a good understanding of the subject which goes a long way in answering the questions in the placement interviews

Role of Projects :

Every student is supposed to do a project in his final year. If he/she genuinely tries to take up a project in thelatest technologies he/she will get confidence and also there is a very good chance of getting a job based on his/her

Dress code :

One should remember that the first impression is the best impression. Hence it is advisable to come well dressedto the aptitude test itself (or the presentation itself). The dress code for boys is normally a dark coloured pant with ight coloured full hands shirt with tucked in. They are expected to wear shoes and for ladies it is a light coloured dress. However, I have observed that the students who come in tucked in for the first time are more nervous because of the uneasiness they have when as they wear it for the first time. Hence it is advisable to make a habit to always come well dressed to college. In addition to this, the students are advised to have a professional outlook and approach. Punctuality, parking their vehicles in proper place, talking slowly and gently near the interview hall will all add up to their getting selected.

Role of the college :

Colleges have to first appoint a placement officer whose job is to train the students on these lines and make them ready to face the interviews of the companies which come for placements. Another important task of the placement officer is that he/she has to identify the companies, establish contacts with them and invite them for campus placements. In this regard, the old students of the college who are already working in the company may be of use some. It is also a good idea to invite some of the executives as chief guest/guests of honour for the functions organized by the college so that a good rapport can be established. Apart from these, personal contacts make a great difference. A placement brochure may be prepared and sent to all prospective industries which might come for campus recruitment.

Some useful tips :

The following tips will be useful in getting a good placement, if followed, scrupulously

  1. Know more about the company by browsing the net before appearing for the interview.
  2. Practice problems related to the topics of the aptitude test.
