In IIT Delhi placements, 500 hired in first 5 days

Over 680 offers were bagged by Indian Institute of Technology-Roorkee students in the first week of placement season including 13 from international companies a statement from the institute said on Friday

In the ongoing placements at the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (IIT-D), over 500 students were hired by recruiters by both global and domestic companies within five days, the institute said on Thursday. "Even though the "Graveyard" session, which was held mainly to facilitate interviews with recruiters in the US, was scrapped this year, the total number of worldwide offers has increased from 10 last year to 22 in the first four days", he added.

In the first three days of the placement seasons, 47 offers were made to the students for various worldwide postings.

"However, some students, who bagged global placements on December 1, preferred to opt for other options in India", the institute said, as quoted by Hindustan Times.

The prestigious Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (IIT-D) is not only known for excellence in academic standards but also for maintaining high values and ethics, as contrary to the other institutes which take pride in declaring the highest paid jobs bagged by their students in the campus placements, the IIT-D follows the policy of not mentioning the high-value packages in their placement.

Microsoft was among 25 worldwide recruiters that hired over 500 students in India this week.

"This increase shows that IIT-M students are being increasingly preferred for research-oriented positions by the Industry", said Professor Manu Santhanam, advisor, Training and Placements, IIT Madras. A few students opted for the deferred placement options available to students interested in pursuing their start-up dreams. Over 300 organisations across sectors offering over 500 job roles have already registered for placements. The first phase of placement season has started on December 1. "Phase Two will commence from January 2018", the official said.

The IIT did not reveal the exact worth of the high-value packages, saying it felt undue publicity on the matter would devalue national placements over the global placements, among others.

"We try to ensure that all kinds of job profiles get a fair representation on the roster". We also strive to ensure that all kinds of students get a chance to be interviewed.
