Surprisingly enough, most of the selected students have not yet passed their final graduation examination so far.
WIPRO, a reputed software company, selected as many as seven PU students for the job of process associate on the basis of campus interview held at Patna Law College on Tuesday. PU vice chancellor Y C Simhadri inaugurated the campus selection process organised by the PU Employment Information and Guidance Bureau. Bureau chief Amarendra Mishra told TOI that as many as 26 rounds of campus placements had been organised in recent months at different institutions of PU.
The process of campus selection first started at Patna Science College in the month of September 2006, when a reputed NGO, Pradan, selected a good number of boys and girls from different disciplines. “Since then, the process of campus placement is on, with more and more organisations queuing up for offering jobs to our boys and girls,” he added.
Reputed organisations like Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), Indian Tobacco Company (ITC), IBM , Infosys and ICICI Bank, besides some other non-governmental organisations, have already visited the campus and selected a number of boys and girls for jobs.
Six to seven other reputed organisations of the country are likely to visit PU campus in very near future, said Mishra. Only recently, ITC held a campus interview at B N College and selected a good number of students for jobs.
About a month back, IBM, a reputed software company, turned up at Patna Science College and selected as many as 10 students from different institutions for jobs. TCS had also selected as many as 37 BSc final-year students for jobs on the basis of campus interviews held at Magadh Mahila College in January. TCS held another campus interview in the same college in February and selected several students from different PU colleges for jobs .
