The Road to Placements

The barometer to a college’s efficiency, the test of an Institution’s brand and the face of the B-School magnet that draws in its candidates! And finally with the ‘season’ of placements fast approaching, there is quite a lot of flurry in the minds of students; a rumble on the inside telling them “this is what you came here for and now is the time to put your foot on the throttle”.

When I first joined college, we really never thought of placements even though that was one of my main criteria for selecting colleges. I had the time of my life meeting new people, getting used to volatile schedules and, to put it in a nutshell, living the ‘awesome’ life. Over time, that got institutionalised in my system! A routine that was not a ‘routine’ which made me stay in college from morning to night so much so that, I coined a term for myself – “the Day-Hosteller”.

 

Jokes aside, we all know that the time to truly prove ourselves has finally arrived. The time when even the smallest of habits like daily sessions of newspapers, preparing PowerPoints, public speaking trials and case study analyses will pay rich dividends. But more than all these if there was something worth preparing for the most, it is the answer to the vaguest question in Interview History, “tell me about yourself”. As clichéd as it may sound, most of us know so much about world leaders, business tycoons and economic empires that we fail to know about the most important person, the one who is in the spotlight- Ourselves!

 

I am pretty sure your preparations are going splendidly well but if there is something I would like you to take away from this note, it is to spend some time getting to know the person you are. Not only will this boost your confidence in interviews and show you areas of improvement, it will help you realise whether you will fit in the role or the organisation that comes knocking at the doors of your campus. At the end of the day, only when you are in the environment suited to your way of working can you grow and shine with superior performance.

 

So do whatever it takes! Be it asking people what they think of you or even down to something as simple as a cup of coffee with yourself, so that, when you sit in the interview, you can set the tone and pace and know for sure that, at that moment, you’re your best and most positive self!

All the best for placements everyone! Blossom where you’re planted!

Hello I have got 96.802 percentile in XAT2020 Quantitative-84.172 VA&LR-99.389 DM-79.200 I have applied for 4colleges 1)Great lakes 2)IMT 3) LIBA 4) KJ SOUMAYA I want to know whether any other good colleges where I can apply? and also would I get any call from institutions other than thelisted above

Soumya Kanta Sarkar 28th Jan, 2020

Hi Rishabh,

First of all, I would like to congratulate you on securing such an awesome percentile. XAT is one of the toughest exams in India and no doubt you have aced it perfectly. XAT is such an exam which is accepted by majority of the Indian B-Schools and some very good ones too. I will list down some of the B-Schools that you can expect a call from and their average package:

B-School

Average Package(in LPA)

GLIM

10.25

LIBA

9

IMT

14.23

KJSOMAIYA

8

IFMR

9

GIM

11.22

TAPMI

11.06


These are some of the good B-Schools in the country. Apart from that, you can also get a call from:

B-School

Average Package(in LPA)

XLRI

22.35

XIMB

12.91


To get a call, you must have to fill up their form, either at the time of exam form fill up or separately. After this you will be called for:

  • Group Discussion
  • Case Discussions
  • Personal Interview

Though GD and PI  will be compulsory, few of the colleges conduct Case Discussions and Written Ability Test.

Getting a call from these B-Schools would not ensure your admission into them as several factors are taken into consideration before taking a student into a B-School, such as:

  • Academic and ExtraCurricular achievements
  • Relevant work experience
  • Performance in GD/WAT/PI process

I hope I have been able to solve your query. Do write to us if you need any more information and we will be happy to help you out. All the best!!!

chances of converting liba chennai at xat 77.35 percentile ??(Gen catholic christian)Heard that liba provides reservation for Catholics.

Sampriti Student Expert 21st Jan, 2020
LIBA does have some reservations but for general category students the minimum percentile required is 86 in XAT. Only for the reserved category they require 70 percentile. But you can still get some good colleges like
  • IIFM Bhopal
  • XIME Bangalore
  • Alliance University Bangalore
  • BIMTECH Noida
  • Great Lakes Gurgaon
  • IFMR Chennai
  • ITM Navi Mumbai and others.

These are pretty decent colleges and offer good academics and placements. They also have good reputation among recruiters and you can easily get an average compensation package of 6-7 lakhs in a reputed organization.

Good Luck
