proposed placement policy -2008 !!

22 Dec

This year’s placement is going pretty well, most of the guys have got their dream job. This time IIIT may cross 5 lac average … who knows!!

 

While going through new placement website, I came across this page , which states …..

 

 

Future Initiatives

Listed below are some of the proposed initiatives for the placement season 2008:

  • Post academic year placement season
  • Common Placement Test (CPT)
  • 10-to-15-day placement season (a very brief placement season, unlike in current and past years)
  • Mini career fairs each day (= this means around 10 employers each day)
  • There would not be dream and non dream classification of recruiters; all recruiters would be treated on par
  • Students would be allowed two offers each

This is the topic our batch has been talking bout past few weeks.

Well !! here is my analysis of the proposed policy … after all its going to decide our future …

· Post academic year placement season

Merit: – may reduce the competitor, specially, who got selected in CAT n MS some where …

Demerit: – Don’t leave much time for off campus if one didn’t get his dream job.

Also may result in loss of 1-2 month pay

  • Common Placement Test (CPT)

Merit: – May reduce the number of exams a student has to go through.

Demerits: – there is a proverb in hindi – “har din diwali nahi hoti” , i.e. every day can’t be yours, if under some circumstances a person couldn’t perform well that day … his future is ruined.

Also, the syllabus n all is very different not only of ECE n CSE.. But of VLSI, Communication, CVIT, DBMS n all … if there will be a separate test for each of this stream then what if one wish to sit for the company of other stream …. Or does one have to give all the exams …

  • 10-to-15-day placement season (a very brief placement season, unlike in current and past years)
  • Mini career fairs each day (= this means around 10 employers each day)

 

Merit: – 45 days tension is reduced to 15 days…

Demerit: – During the 45 day session, at max 10-15 days a company come for a guy of a particular stream. So his tension is of maximum 10-15 days.

Once the interview is over his tension is over. But if we shrink it to 15 days then he’ll be stressed for the whole day may be… Or if each day has one company then, we had come back to the same figure of 15 days…

If all of this is about reducing the stress a student go through. Then what bout the tension he’ll have till the placement session starts … when all of his friends have got placed at other institutes, while he is still waiting for his ….

  • There would not be dream and non dream classification of recruiters; all recruiters would be treated on par
  • Students would be allowed two offers each

 

Merit: – I didn’t find any advantage in it.

Demerit: – well!! Previous rule was, one person can take 1 dream job and one 1 normal one…

Now suppose a guy has already got a dream job, n he managed to get another. Now, this has reduced the opportunity for other to get that dream job… and hence he has to satisfy him self with a normal one…

And I am sure that there is 100% possibility of happening this… All in all ……… for an average student …

 

Well this analysis is solely based on my knowledge, and only the provided article, I don’t know if there is further modification to it, correct me if I m wrong any where …
