GIBS, Bangalore

8th February 2018, Bangalore: The date approaches rapidly with so much happening in 2018 like the triple moon fantasy. Business management student job aspirations do have numerous opportunities, but the Job Mela on 10th February is a rare occasion with 26 companies to date having confirmed their participation. Some top notch companies offering exalted positions that ensure starry futures make it an exhilarating opportunity for some, of course. The lucky few would succeed and the rest may be endowed with better luck next time.

Global Institute of Business Studies in Bangalore has succeeded very well since it's inception in 2001 to mold mighty business managers who opt for appropriate specializations in keeping with personal aptitude and interests. MBA and PGDM are their flagship postgraduate courses, though they also offer undergraduate BBA and B.Com courses.

Designations for employment offered by the companies, the required years of experience, qualifications expected, whether graduate or postgraduate, and the salary range in rupees per month are mentioned. Potential student employees have 0 years of work experience, though some postgraduate students would have work experience prior to taking up studies.

It is interesting to note that many qualified engineers and hospitality or healthcare professionals opt for an additional business management degree that opens up vast new senior positions in work cultures. IT, Finance, Accounting, HR, Healthcare, Relationship Manager and Customer Care Executives are some positions offered. The beginning may not appear grand, but prospects are excellent for quick promotions in leading companies, the fastest promotions coming in business management rather than most other professions.

The selection process

Though the essential details are mentioned, the number of vacant posts is not mentioned. Though many jobs look very attractive, the problem is to succeed with the selection. Raw graduates and postgraduates with no experience of the professional field find it a tedious process to fulfill all the requirements to apply and be successfully selected. Being a student of GIBS has many advantages like receiving the best internships and thus being exposed to the working world race. Further, they are coached about resume building and the skills of facing interviews and group discussions. Excellent expression in speech and writing is very important too in the selection process.
