First Placement Offer Is Not Necessarily The Best Offer
This season at FORE, the placement session which started in Nov 2015, is coming to an end with 90% students placed and many having multiple job offers from prominent corporates. Apart from the traditional recruiters from FMCG, IT/ITeS, Manufacturing, Banking and Consulting domains, there has been e-commerce, Unicornsand Tech start-ups recruiting from the campus, as well.
“At FORE our attempt always been to mentor the students to have patience and critically evaluate the roles and salaries offered instead of grabbing whatever offers comes by. Just like our selection process, where we give fair chance to the student to prove her merit, not just based on her CAT score but various potential professional skill sets, our attempt has always been to see that the students’ get their best possible match in placement offers, keeping in mind – the job competency and the individual’s passion and craving. It should be a win-win situation for the student as well as the recruiter” said Dr.Jitendra K Das, Director, FORE School of Management, Delhi.
“First offer is not necessarily the best offer. We encourage students to be selective in acceptance of offers and not to rush through the process. The highest offer this year is INR 14 Lacs, so far, with average being INR 8.3 Lacs. PPOs have increased too with the largest PPO offer of INR 13.2 Lacs. The average payback period is expected to be around 16 months”, adds Prof. Rajneesh Chauhan, Chair-Placements.
JP Morgan, Bank of America, SBI, ICICI, and HDFC offered finance related profiles. Hindustan Unilever offered profiles in both sales and finance. NIIT, Cognizant and Infosys recruited in bulk. Offers were made by Accenture, PwC, KPMG, Deloitte, E & Y from the consulting domain while Amazon, Quick’r, NEARBUY (erstwhile GroupOn) and India Mart from ecommerce. Among others were – Asian Paints, Deloitte, Genpact, Kotak Bank, Coffee Café Day, HP, Dell, Hector Beverages, MarutiUdyog.
The applications for the upcoming admission session at FORE is re-opened on demand until Jan 20th 2016. Though CAT/XAT/GMAT score is apparently the primary benchmark for selection but in order to make it more open for the students, weightage is distributed to other skill sets and latent business leadership talents.
