How important are extracurriculars while getting a shortlist in summers?
The weight of extracurriculars depends on the profile and the company itself. Truthfully, no one knows what pleases a recruitter, apart from the recruitter itself. But as a general rule, markettiong profiles, and customer facing profiles in general, seem to look more at the extracarricular achievements than finance and operations based profiles.Your extracarriculars are a lot of times a point of connect between you and your customers, so it would make sense to have someone who is, say, a good swimmer or cricketer.
