We are MBA students from a B School in coimbatore.We are doing final year.our final exams are going to start by next week.
We didn't have any campus placements at all. Now the placement officer is asking us to submit offer letters and then to get hall ticket for the exam,if we fail to submit offer letter we will not get hall tickets it seems. we informed that we are still searching for the job and haven't got the offer letter till now. But the placement officer is saying even if you dont join in a company, atleast just get the offer letter alone...
We want to know whether any company will give offer letter if we just go and ask?
we would be grateful if you senior members could give some suggestions to deal with this problem we are facing?

Hi Ajay,
First of all as a placement officer, he is responsible to get the companies into colleges for campus drives. Next, no company will give you offer letter if you go and ask.
You can get it from fake consultancies and that is of no use for your candidature.

Hi Ajay,
Your placement officer and your colleges management do not have any right to stop you from appearing in the exam in absence of offer letter.
It is the duty of placement officer to arrange campus placement and get you job. He is being paid salary for placing the candidates in various company. You tell him to do his duty properly.
If they do not listen then join with your other friends and talk to management of college. If they also do not listen then complain in Police, advertise in news paper etc. No student will take admission in their college Next year.

From your statement, the placement officer seems to be mentally disordered person. No such conditions for issuing hall tickets. Offer letters are not commodities which can be purchased from market at any time.

This post, by our classmate, is the handiwork of a demented mind and needs to be taken with a sackful of salt. The basic allegation that he has made here is a blatant lie and a misrepresentation of facts. The few students like him who did not secure a placement were told to give a note explaining what steps they were taking to get placed on their own. This was done solely to see if the institution could help them in any way towards finding employment. They were advised to submit that note while they came to take the Hall Tickets. Students like me, who have been placed in reputed firms,

(thanks to our institution and the genial placement officer) were told to submit our offer letters at the same time, and we gladly did the same. There was no threat of any kind involved.

At a time when the nation's economy is in a sharp downturn, and companies are downsizing and cutting costs, our institution tried its best and helped 80% of us to get placed in fairly reputed companies. At times I think we students are forgetting that colleges are places where they impart knowledge. They are not placement agencies, who are obliged by law to provide employment to each student. The placement officer is a mere coordinator who facilitates the institution, students and the companies to make the best of the opportunities available in a growing economy. Candidates with negative attitudes would not be welcome in any company / industry regardless of the placement officer, the institution or his academic proficiency.

This particular guy has been whining all year round because he did not take any of the opportunities seriously and hence could not get placed purely because of his negative attitude and incompetence. There were instances when he was found sobbing on his mentor's shoulder like a primary school kid. Last month the moron tried to instigate all of us with a group mail to revolt against the management for some silly reasons that he had cooked up on his own. We laughed it off.

We, all his classmates, feel sorry for this guy and his juvenile attempts at getting some attention. But we are really appalled by his attempts to tarnish the image of kind people like our placement officer, who is merely executing the orders of the management and following the policies laid down by them.

This guy needs help. He needs counseling and he needs to wake up and smell the coffee. Before it's too late.

I wonder about your identity. You can see we all disclose our identity and you are hiding yourself. I think you are not his classmate. Your language and tone is clear that you are not his classmate.

How did you come to know that your classmate has posted something on Citehr and you came up to provide justification for your college / institution. He has not mentioned details of his college / institution then why you want to give justification and started blaming the student.

we all know that college is not placement agency then why your college asking for placement offer letter. Your college is not responsible for the same.

Question raised is "Student will not be allowed to appear for the exam in absence of offer letter from a company". Why your college is making so stupid rules. This rule of college made him to ask for "duplicate offer letter" which results in "corruption" and unwillingly your college becomes soil & seed for growth of corruption.

If student does not have offer letter and he is eligible for exam then he should appear for the exam. Later on, if he is not getting job offer, it is his problem, not yours and your college.

classmate justification is not eye opener. He is not classmate. He is from college management.
Simple question raised " Student will not be allowed to appear for the exam in absence of offer letter from a company".
Is this correct rule?
we gave the opinion on this statement.

How will you take it if I told you that there is no 'ajaybaskar' in our class at all. If this person was telling the truth, he wouldn't have hidden himself with a fake name, no ?
It amuses me that you aren't even considering the fact that this guy's story is all cooked up. Ask yourself this simple question - Why has none of our other classmates written here in his support although everyone has been informed about it by the guy himself ?!!
