‚ÄòPlacement‚Äô – one word that can cause even the mightiest to jitter. In a world full on competition, even being the best is no longer enough. From drafting the perfect CV, to staying calm in front on scary interviewers, the entire experience can be harrowing. In an attempt to smoothen the roller coaster ride called placements for third year students, The Placement Cell, Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC) is always by their side.
The Placement Season for this year began on 10th August, 2016 with 712 students from a batch size of 869 registering interest for placements. Open to a variety of job profiles and pay, these students have set the standard a notch higher than ever before, with past experience from multiple internships and professional courses.
In turn, The Placement Cell has left no stone unturned to bring the biggest names in the industry on campus. Be it the consulting giant McKinsey and Company, or the highest paymaster Parthenon-EY, each and every company that has visited the college so far has been amazed by the talent the students have to offer.
This season is already turning out to be a success, with Parthenon-EY taking 3 students as Associates at a whooping pay of 29.2 LPA each, the highest any DU student can aspire for. Consultancy, a profile that many vie, saw McKinsey and Company and A.T. Kearney take 2 students each with packages over 15 LPA. Investment banking firm Deutsche Bank continued its streak at SRCC, with 5 students being placed with packages again over 15 LPA.
A completely new company this year, tech-giant Google is currently in the middle of its process to handpick students from SRCC. Firms like Bain Capability Centre, Indus Insights, Deloitte, KPMG and EY have already filled their vacancies for the year 2017.
‚ÄúIt is heartening to see the kind of companies coming for recruitment this year, and the variety of profiles is an added bonus. We shall strive to spread this reach even further in the times to come, in our attempt to provide our students the best of opportunities‚Äù, says Shalu Gupta, Chief Secretary of The Placement Cell.
