My first Fine Print article

For those who aren't aware, I happen to be a member of the English Press CLub of BITS Pilani. The following is the article I wrote for the Fine Print (that's our magazine), being put up on this blog to solely serve the purpose of being "looking back material" a few years down the line. Also this is my first article in the Fine Print (the previous ones being published in Chairascuro, the Oasis magazine).

And it's on the placement scenario here at BITS this semester.

BITSians can heave a sigh of relief. The on-campus placement scenario this semester has been significantly better and satisfactory than the previous couple of semesters, which may be attributed to the rising economic conditions all around. We (that's me) spoke to Ayush Bansal, Placements volunterr and he helped throw some light on this subject. As it stands now (20th November), close to 230 of the 443 registered students have already been placed in reputed firms and the details have been pretty heartwarming. While Computer Science and EEE continue to rule the roost with a whopping success rate, Electronics and Instrumentation and Mechanical have also surged ahead of their previous records and added to the overall success. The news however is not all that good on the Civil and Chemical fronts which saw a rather dismal placement scenario this year. It is still not over yet, though, and 10 more companies are expected to land up on-campus before the compres commence … lets hope the situation brightens up then.

The big recruiters this year have been HP and Oracle, with each recruiting close to 20. Other big names like Shell, Amazon, and Credit Suisse and have also been around and have recruited 2, 2 and 6 people each. NTPC and Dr. Reddy’s have been pretty active too with each accounting for around 10 people, Dr Reddy's specifically taking students of B Pharm, M Pharm and Chemical Engineering.Other companies included the the BITSian firms, Apex, Map My India and KONY labs, recruiting 5, 13 and 11 students respectively. That is not the end however, because there are other big names that are certain to hit our campus before the semester ends. These include finance giants JP Morgan, Bajaj Alianz, and ADP.

The placement scenario this year has certainly improved and there have been many cases of students who actually went in for a second round of placements, 40 of them from varied streams including the under-performing Civil and Chemical Engineering streams getting a second job offer. Also, there has been not much difference in the recruitment of Dualites and non-Dualites excepting for the fact that the Public Sector firms seem a bit biased towards the non-Dualites.

Hey thats some great news!!!!!

Civil people may not find jobs initially, but on the infrastructure front, there is a huge lacuna of engineer.. They really stand a good chance once they are out of campus!
