Students of Delhi University are a favourite among the India Inc and some multi- national companies, which have already given job offers – with pay packages touching as high as 8 lakh per annum – to around 850 students and are expected to offer jobs to more students in the coming few days.
University officials said that there is a huge jump in the number of job offers being made this year. While this year the number has already touched 850, last year only around 500 students were placed by the end of April by varsity’s Central Placement Cell (CPC), officials said.
Officials handling CPC, which started in October last year, said that this year the number of students getting jobs will cross the one thousand mark as many companies are still approaching the varsity for conducting a placement drive. Last year only five hundred students were placed till April.
“Around 850 students from various colleges and courses have been placed in companies till now. Companies like HCL Technologies, Genpact, Wipro, Accenture, Genpact and TATA Capital have already given job offers to hundreds of students.
The highest package offered this year is around Rs.8 lakh per annum, officials said. ” The salary packages offered this year are starting from Rs.2 lakh per annum and have already touched Rs.8 lakh per annum mark. We also expect the packages to go higher,” said Khurana.
Students who are registered with CPC are eligible for placements.
For students from off campus colleges CPC is a great platform as companies usually don’t come to their colleges. ” I have a job offer from an IT company with the package of Rs.3.4 lakh per annum. Many of my friends will take part in the coming placement drive,” said Kartik, a student of Economics.
