is Campus Recruitment?
All the companies look for fresh talent. The institutes are
classified as Tier I, II or III – either they are
engineering colleges or management Institutes. And there is a
great rush for grabbing the best talent from the college
campus. The companies visit various colleges to pick up the
students suitable for their operations. Once the candidate is
selected, offer letters are given and the students may join
once they graduate.
There is always a shortage of ‘good manpower’. If you do
not pick them up early, some one else will.
