Kindly share a policy note on Campus Recruitment process. Thanks Shilpa
From India, Pune
Hello Shilpa,

Campus Recruitment Drive means the colleges invite the IT or Non-IT companies to visit their colleges for the purposes of recruitment. The employer company would visit colleges to select the potential employees. Each one of these companies would have its own selection creteria like the students should have continuously 65% and above and they should have excellent communication skills (both oral and written) etc. They will conduct first, written tests, then, group discussions and finally the one to one interviews. This is the process of recruitment.

The other one is how to get these employer companies to our colleges? The college Placement Officer would do this job. He will visit these companies in person, and try to convince the HR guys of these companies about his college. The interesting point to the HR would be the selection ratio. If he gets one out of every twenty students, it is OK. In support of this trend, the Placement Officer would show his college website, or brochure. It should show the kind of infrastructure facilities, the labs, the training departments, the kind of activities, the potential strength of the students with high % and their achievements etc. If the HR believes that it is worth visiting the college, then they plan the visit. The college would arrange and facilitate their visit and extend its hospitality for the recruitment team. This is broadly the recruitment process. If you have any more clarifications, please write to mek. Thanks and regards,

While campus placement is an end result, you need to understand the ingredients that are required to obtain that particular result. Skills like professional ethics, communication, self learning ability and then core technical skills is what that can get any company to a campus. There is a process which needs to be followed to develop quality engineers and only then you can expect campus placements.

That a very nice discussion.
I would love to give my inputs so that the HRs involved in "campus recruitment for core industries" get a feel of it.
Core industry isn't growing in the manner we would love it to. That being the fact we are faced with another problem of rapidly growing engineering colleges under the syllabus of UGC/AICTE/University...whatever.
In the whole affair there is an mismatch of university produce and industry requirement. Its actually alarming. The facts dolled out say 70% engineers are not even trainable!!
College does what it can and should as an enterprise. They have their limitations in terms of who they can recruit to produce engineers, unfortunately the college management gets to pick from the crowd of left out resources available which has not made to higher grounds in career.
Industry doesnt see the wow factor in institutions and leave alone hunting for talent there the industry hardly makes an effort to extend its expertise to do something about it. The effort doesnt seem like a good bargain to the industry.
But then under some of their other social obligation industry takes and train these engineers from basic engineering only to see that in the guys do their "vanish and found elsewhere" act.
This is serious and real problem.
the recruitment process is simple, can be intellectualize - salt pepper added to taste- but the crisis on hand is not with HR recruitment agencies or HR officers. It rests in the hands of power that be who run this damn valueless process of designing and delivering engineers!!
Issue with IT segment may not be all that bad. its a baby yet. And it doesn't need learnt skills, it needs ability to learn skills. so at least thats not a problem thankfully.
