The central placement cell of Panjab University (PU) is going to organise a campus placement drive Avsar on March 13 and 14 for students from all streams. Vice-Chancellor (V-C) R C Sobti inaugurated the official website of Avsar today.
According to the officials,nearly 650 companies have registered for recruitments at the drive,so far. The drive has been conceptualised in collaboration with the Panjab University Campus Students Council (PUCSC).
The website has up-to-the-date information on the proceedings and development of the placement drive. While it will help students to get them registered on one hand,it will also assist them in preparing for interviews on the other. Those companies that are willing to participate in the drive can also register themselves through this web portal, said Sobti.
To prepare the students better,the university has organised a one-day interactive workshop where the Human Resource Development Department heads of some leading organisations will be invited to guide the students, added Sobti.
The varsity had organised a similar central drive last year,wherein 250 of the 1,400 students who had registered for placements were selected by different companies.
This year,nearly 845 students from 14 departments have been placed with a minimum annual pay package of Rs 2 lakh. Some of these departments include University Institute of Engineering and Technology (UIET),University Institute for Chemical Engineering and Technology (UICET),University Business School (UBS),Department of Economics,Chemistry and Law.
