IIT pre-placement offers at an all time high
Pre-placement offers to students at the Indian Institutes of Technology have scaled a record high this year, indicating a bumper recruitment season ahead amid growing inclination among leading employers to hire through the tried-and-tested internship route.
The number of offers at some IITs has already shot up about a third than that a year ago, officials said, even as companies have more than two weeks left to snap up talent through PPOs from the premier engineering institutes.
“We were a little apprehensive earlier about the job market, but seeing the trend in PPOs this year we certainly see positivity in the overall job market,”said NP Padhy , professor in-charge of placement at IIT Roorkee. “Companies offer PPOs to deserving candidates to ensure that they do not miss out on talent during final placements.”
