Every year many top job recruiters and companies visit our college for seminers, interviews, job exams. Our college personally invites recruiters through our placement cell and our professors make sure that we visit every interviews and seminar to get better idea about what we want to do in our future. Some companies give stipend during internship and few recruits directly.
Admission in my course was entirely based on merit list. The capacity was of 35 students. And the first 50 or 70 students from merit list were called for the first admission. I was not chosen in the first admission. Within few weeks few students transferred to other colleges and there were many vacant seats. That is when the next few students from the merit list were called for the second admission and this time I got selected.
Our colleges have extremely talendted and educated professors. They actually get along with students very well. They help the students in every project work and motivates them for everything possible for their bright future.
