Thats interesting article and newsbit.. but it did not mention the SITE URL! And when I say that news reporting in India – specially for Hindustan Times and Times of India have gone down tremendously.. this is what I mean! They have become tabloids! Only a junk reporter from a tabloid would write a story like this WITHOUT the site mentioned in it!!
Students across the country can now scout for that dream job thanks to an employment website set up by the capital’s Kirori Mal College (KMC).
Via the website – launched by Delhi University vice chancellor Deepak Pental in December – students can submit resumes and await intimation on interviews by the registered companies as and when vacancies arise.
The site has so far 450 students and 23 top-notch companies, including Taj Group of Hotels, Ernst & Young, HCL Technologies, Wipro Technologies, Indian Air Force and India Bulls, registered with it.
The best thing about the site is that we don’t have to go knocking on doors begging for jobs as these companies will come into our campus,” said Abira Bhattacharya, a first year B Sc student in KMC.
Irevinder Kaur, a third-year student of botany, said discussions in the site, especially post-interview feedback from other students, would be of great help. Kirori Mal College principal Bhim Sen Singh said the idea for the site sprang from the response to an earlier site – kmcollege.com – that had processed 190,343 forms in 2004-05 in a single day during admission.
“As it’s the time of information technology and Internet, why not go online? This will also help build a wide network that will eventually help students of this college and other colleges settle into jobs,” Singh told the agency.
Though many colleges have placement cells, only students of that particular college can apply through their varsity websites. The Kirori Mal initiative is a more expansive gesture as it is open to students of all colleges in India.
“We don’t have an online placement site but we do have a placement cell. However, our college does not accept resumes from students of other colleges,” said Chandrachur Singh, convener of Hindu College’s placement cell.
Though the five-decades-old Kirori Mal College located in the North Campus of Delhi University offers some of the best courses, it is more famous for the Bollywood film stars it has churned out over the years.
Some of the star graduates from the college are Amitabh Bachchan, Khulbushan Kharbanda and Satish Kaushik. The latest to join the Bollywood bandwagon is southern celebrity Siddharth, who played Karan Singhania in the hit “Rang De Basanti”.
Seema M. Parihar, the site’s convenor and a faculty member of the college, said: “The response to the site has been satisfying. But we need more interaction from the students as well as from staff members to make this site a huge success.”
