JECRC University: 75 Days, 72 Companies, 1451 Placements
Date: November 8, 2019
Jaipur, India’s official “Pink City” has been traditionally known for its marvelous vintage architecture, royal history, and delectable food recipes. It is one of the most popular places to visit among the tourists. But, over the years, this city has undergone transformations that are extending its reputation from that of a holiday destination.
Jaipur is pushing its boundaries and has now become one of the hottest destinations for Multi-National Companies to hire fresh talent from. This evolution, as the new placement hub of India, is the outcome of the colossal leap in its higher education set up. It has become home to some of the most progressive universities and colleges of higher education in this country. Greater emphasis on increased industry-academia interface, industry-supported training, curriculums on updated technologies and rigorous pre-placement training that focuses equally upon the interpersonal skills of the students has exponentially enhanced the footfall of giant companies in these campuses for recruitments.
As a result of all this, one name that has become synonymous with the sphere of higher education in Rajasthan is that of JECRC Foundation. Over the last two decades of its existence, the Foundation, through its persistent pursuit for excellence has steadily but surely set up the premise for the unbelievable numbers it has been able to amass in its campus placement drives. Much to its credit is the fact that since its inception, bulk recruiters like Accenture, TCS & Capgemini have held exclusive recruitment drives annually for the students of the JECRC Foundation. This has resulted in more than 10,500 of its students grabbing their dream jobs in 700 such companies in the last fifteen years.
This year as well, in just the first 75 days of placement season, a total of 1451 students of JECRC Foundation got offer letters from 72 companies like Deloitte, E&Y, Capgemini, TCS, Accenture, MTX, Mindtree, Birlasoft, Metacube, BYJU’s, Pinnacle & ZS Associates through exclusive campus drives organised by JECRC Foundation. These students belong to the entire spectrum of traits offered at JECRC Foundation viz. Engineering, Journalism, Design, Law, Humanities, Hospitality, Sciences & Management.
This feat is unprecedented not just in the history of the JECRC Foundation but is also unrivaled among similar groups in the region. Testimony to it is the fact that the Honourable Chief Minister of Rajasthan, Sh. Ashok Gehlot took cognizance of this achievement and invited the leadership team of JECRC to congratulate and commend them on this triumph. He deeply appreciated the efforts put in by the entire team and reverberated the thought that such accomplishments go a long way in strongly establishing Rajasthan as the powerhouse of talent in India. He was also delighted to know that, this year, not just the number of selections have increased but also the average offered package saw a leap of 20% and reached a figure of 4.5 lacs per annum.
Vice-Chairman, JECRC Foundation, Shri. Amit Agrawal highlighted that one of the pivotal factors that contributed to this winning streak is a focused awareness of the changing paradigms of the core sector recruitments. The increased penetration of IT sector companies in projects related to Construction, Finance, Operations, and Manufacturing has led to inflation in selections of Electrical, Mechanical & Civil engineering students in software companies. He further added that as the focal point of technology shifts to IoT, Data Sciences & Artificial Intelligence, the coming years will see an eruption in job opportunities in these sectors. Accordingly, JECRC has begun, training its students on these skills under its “Teaching beyond Curriculum” initiative.
Director, JECRC Foundation, Shri. Arpit Agrawal pointed out that a new observable trend in the latest hiring patterns of software companies is the advent of “Competition Based Hiring” wherein the company conducts a nationwide technical proficiency test and hires candidates based on its result. The foundation has quickly adapted to this scenario and has been consistently providing the highest number of Microsoft Student Partners and TCS Codevita selections. He also mentioned that the turning point in the placement figures came with the introduction of a 200 hour rigorous “Campus Recruitment Training” program, carefully devised to cater to the latest selection criteria of various companies.
The foundation has also been foremost in motivating its students to join the armed forces. A significant number of their students are currently serving the nation in the army, air force and navy.
