This was a very unforseen situtaion. Today Yahoo was supposed to be here for campus recruitment. But it isnt. It is postponed indefinitely. There is a lot of confusion in the placement cell with the placement secretaries being divided into two groups -- as far as I know mainly because of ego problem with two of them -- and dividing the work amongst them.
The placement officer is in a very elegant mood and thinks quite too big of the college o believe. He is of the philosophy that "We college people are not going to invite any of the companies. If the company is interested in us then let them come here by themselves". According to me it is utter non-sense. Ofcourse there are companies which have good relations with the college and would come here even without the invitation from the college. There are many such. Infact some of them would even ease down a little on the requirements when the placement officer asks them to do so. Thats all fine. Its fantastic. Many of the students who would have just missed out the requirements because of some reason will be able to make it and make a place for themselves.
But why those aiming high are supposed to suffer? Why is that the college cant invite companies to come here? We have very few high paying companies. On the contrary our frineds in other colleges are just not attempting certrain companies for the reason that they have another company on the next day paying a lakh more. And the pay of the companies that are being left out by them were offering a pay which was higher than the highest paid here in our college.
Moreover there is a serious flaw in the system. Some of the best companies will obviously chose very few, may be just one or two. But the no of people aspiring for it is indeed more than that. And such companies come at the end. So those aiming at these must have to wait quite long and also they ll have to forego some the initial good companies for the very good ones. So we must ask the big ones to come first and then the small ones. The terms big and small refer to the pay and also the work quality.
Mostly all these are things that people have been wishing fromquite some years since dreams started. But no steps have been taken till now. As such the concept of dreams is also not so old. May be now is the time these thngs must be brought to light and the necessary steps taken.
But as of now all that I can do is to take chance and aim high and try achieving it or be complacent with a small one.
What do you think about this?
